POV Action Camera Comparison

This is one of the best side-by-side POV action camera comparisons that I've seen. Six different models evaluated under various scenarios (indoor, outdoor, tunnel, high speed).
The cameras evaluated are the latest versions of the GoPro, Sony, Drift, Ion, Garmin and Shimano. Check out this video before you buy your next camera.

Some Things Change, Some Things Stay The Same.

I came across this historical documentary film made in the 1940's about traveling along the Pan American Highway.  Based on my own travels along the route, I would say that most of the big cities now are quite different and modern.  However, some of the rural areas that I passed through were almost exactly as featured in this film.  I find it somewhat comforting that some things change, some things stay the same.
Check out the 35 minute documentary.

Pacific Crest Trail Thru-Hike

There has been a lot of hype about the book and movie called Wild. The story is about Cheryl Strayed"s personal and transformative journey of backpacking the Pacific Crest Trail. I saw the film and thought that it was just okay. A bit too Hollywood for my taste.
I've done some 5, 10 and 15 day hikes, but never a 5 or 6 month thru-hike. I have always dreamed of doing a long thru-hike like the Camino del Santiago, Appalachian Trail (AT), Great Himalayan Trail or Pacific Crest Trail (PCT).

These two guys backpacked the PCT during one of the harshest weather hiking seasons on record and filmed their experience... as it happened. Personally, I think that this is a more realistic and inspirational adventure tale. 
Check out their story in this full length film called As It Happens: Pacific Crest Trail.
(length 87 minutes)
