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.....

The North Face Paclite Jacket

This is a new model, released this year from North Face's Summit Series line, dedicated to alpine and mountaineering requirements. Usually this means, light and functional.
And it is.

Ive been rocking it for about 3 weeks now, and its awesome. Its GoreTex, which means waterproof like a rubber duckie, and its breathable, like the screen door to my trailer I keep running into.
It has full draw cords, to tighten nicely around your melon, and it has a rigid peak on the hood to let the rain fall down like a Hilary Duff song. Oh and it fits over a climbing helmet.
I like that its super light, and like most lightweight jackets, can be packed away into something the size of a McChicken. And of course it has to be black, otherwise I will soil it like a poopy diaper.

Heres a photo from the website, and you might notice me rocking out in it in a few of my own.
Its a no-brainer that its coming with me to the jungle, and Im counting on it to keep my backside dry while Im peddling around the Mexican countryside....

It retails at $299, but worth every penny when you want to keep dry during a climb, or a hot date!
