I am currently on the road, hitchhiking around the world shooting a documentary, or twelve. I am hoping to inspire those around me through unorthodox, and sometimes extreme methods of living. I have decided that in order to accurately measure and also to enable the best possible footage I will not spend a single dollar on food, shelter, transportation or anything personal for the next full year, and only sustain on what has been generously and spontaneously provided for me.
After witnessing enough negative behaviour in complete strangers to complete strangers to last a lifetime, I have decided to set out to accomplish many things. Prove the world is not such a nasty place full of untrustworthy people, open the minds of society that anything is possible, and that a new friend or opportunity is just a conversation away. When common courtesy seems to have evaded us in 2010, I am setting out in search of the good in the human race. Where have all the good people gone?
I will use my social skills, resourceful thinking and life experiences to accomplish a highly controversial move; travel the globe on less than $500 and breakdown every sterotype and false perception. Its going to be tough sometimes, but I know that what is waiting for me will rock the socks off of everyone reading this. Just wait 'til you see the videos.....

Ok, well I have almost two weeks of a break between now and my next contract. I do, and I mean DO plan to have the blog up to date, thats alot of writing, but its a goal Ive set, and golly, I want to meet it, that includes; my hitch out west, treeplanting, hitch south, working in the OK, hitch to SanFran, and my new job as a mountaineering guide. Its alot, but its coming....heres a few snapshots of recent times.
This is climbing the First Brother, a series of 2000m+ peaks in Manning Prov Park.
This one is 2272m, as marked on the post. To use as a reference, Everest, the highest peak in the world is 8850m, so about 1/4 of that altitude. It was a good one, and we had a snowball fight on the south side!

With the group ahead, I snapped a quick one through the Juan de Fuca trail, Vancouver Island.

Well children, thats all for now, but until next time, have your pets spayed and neutered.

Shout out to the boys in Ottawa! Miss you losers....
