I've had a relationship with Mt. Rainier since 1983. Every year I am drawn here to hike, climb or bike. With over 25 thru-hikes, I am intimately familiar with the Wonderland Trail. With this vast experience, combined with a film and music background, I am able to provide the viewer with more information, background and plain eye candy than any other single source. Spending thousands of dollars to take vacation and hike the Wonderland? My Wonderland Trail Complete Series will show you every foot of the trail via time lapse photography. Whisk along at 30-40 MPH, all the while referencing a moving map, elevation indicator and date/time stamp. You also get to view every water source including lat/longs, date/time of recording and map reference. But wait, there's more! Walk through flower fields, over bridges, over snow....in panoramic, 300 degree 3 camera stable video. As if that weren't enough, amble through every backcountry campsite with the same panoramic video, including moving map. And to top it off, I'll include my pre-flood (2006) DVD.
These pages also provide hours of free video, blog articles on various subjects (my daughter and I are Trail Ambassadors for Gossamer Gear) and a wealth of background information on backpacking, Mt. Rainier, fastpacking, equipment and philosophy. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the visual ride.
Use the Wonderland Trail pulldown menu above to access these products. I poured my heart and soul into this series and I sincerely hope I can impart some of the wonder of the Wonderland.
KENDO: I started Kendo with my then 11-year old son 8 years ago and continue practicing today. The Kendo Basics DVD (produced for Marsten Sensei, Kyoshi 7-Dan) is still available and I am currently working on downloadable products stemming from last year's Development Seminar.
