The Walkumentary - Documentary Synopsis

On November 6th, 2006, 6 Southbound Continental Divide Trail (CDT) hikers walked up to a humble little barbed-wire fence on the Mexican Border and finished an end-to-end hike that started 5 months earlier at the Canadian Border. Join them on their 2,800-Mile journey hiking the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail southbound thru Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado and New Mexico.

Directed & Edited by Lawton "Disco" Grinter

A Note from Disco: One of my goals with this film was to kind of unravel the mystery that is the CDT. I know that when I was finishing up my thru-hike of the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) in 2004, my fellow hikers were already talking about "doing the CDT" but no one had any real idea of what a CDT hike was all about including myself. I think that video footage goes a long way, even moreso than a trailjournal or slideshow, in showing a hiker what the CDT looks like, sounds like and feels like. Hopefully I captured this in "The Walkumentary."

Also worth mentioning is that "The Walkumentary" is the 1st Documentary on a southbound thru-hike of the Continental Divide Trail available on DVD. It was filmed by thru-hikers for thru-hikers . . . or for anyone interested in hiking all or part of the Continental Divide Trail.
