For years I've made the effort to seek out and attend the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour. Every year the Banff Mountain Centre hosts the festival and then sends it on the road for the masses to see. It is always exciting and includes a range of films, short and long, highlighting adventures in climbing, boating, mountaineering and on and on. Each year it is different, but it is ALWAYS thrilling.
It has already been through San Francisco, but there are still opportunities to see it in California and Texas. Don't miss it and prepare to be inspired to get outside.
If you'd like some outdoor excitement from your own couch, be sure to catch Frozen Planet on the Discovery Channel. It's made by the same people who made Planet Earth AND it's narrated by Alec Baldwin. Trav and I haven't had a TV in years and could really do without most of the current day programming, but Frozen Planet is way cool (pun absolutely intended). Get ready to nerd out.
And if this little blog is your source for outdoor adventures, we've got lots of it coming up. Like 2,663 miles worth. Starting April 29th. Yes sir, we've set our start date, bought plane tickets to SoCal, and have compiled most of our gear into a color-coded spreadsheet. We'll be sure to share that with you all in coming days/weeks. I'm sure there are people out there (again, nerds) just dying to know our base pack weight. Happy weekend!
