The Walkumentary Links

A freelance writer for Esquire Magazine interviewed me for the October 2007 issue about my southbound hike of the CDT and about The Walkumentary. Well . . . let's just say that the finished article mentioned neither my hike nor The Walkumentary, but it did say that "Expert hikers do it in 145 days" . . . which just so happens to be the amount of time that it took myself, P.O.D. Speedo, Skittles and crew to finish our southbound hikes . . . Umm . . . I'm glad they didn't interview Trauma, Nacho, Pepper, Flyin' Brian or Squeaky for that matter!

I presented The Walkmentary at the ALDHA-West Gathering on September 28, 2007 near South Lake Tahoe to a crowd of about 60. Yogi was kind enough to introduce The Walkumentary at the ALDHA-East Gathering on October 7, 2007 in Gettysburg to a crowd of about 100, which happens to be the largest crowd that's seen the movie yet.

In April 2007 Gossamer Gear was kind enough to put up a quick mention of The Walkumentary. I used the Gossamer Gear Mariposa backpack during his 2006 CDT southbound thru-hike and absolutely loved it.

"Misfit Joe" of 95.9 KZRM-FM Community Radio in Chama, New Mexico interviewed P.O.D. and I during our 2006 southbound hike of the CDT some of which is included in the film. Hear the interview now.

BACKPACKER Magazine has joined with the Continental Divide Trail Alliance (CDTA) to give the CDT "an official map." Check out the progress of this undertaking on their blogsite. This BACKPACKER CDT Project blogsite was kind enough to put a blurb up about The Walkumentary.

Both Just Tomatoes, etc! and Ursack provided P.O.D. & I with yummy treats and protection for those yummy treats during the hike.

And finally . . . Documentarian Scott "Squatch" Herriott answered my countless questions during the editing of this film and without him I would have folded up P.O.D.'s iBook G4 and used it as a Plinko chip. Frankly I owe him my 1st-born although I doubt he really wants a baby from me. Thank you Squatch!
