Since our marriage on Tybee Island, Georgia, Cynthia and I have been talking about having a big adventure together, before having children. Hiking from Georgia, where we were married, to Oregon where we intend to live became the focus of these plans. First and foremost, we want to have an adventure together. We are also very motivated to raise awareness about the need to preserve the remaining wild spaces in America. Our hike and the subsequent documentary is our way of deepening our own bonds together, while also sharing our love of the wild with all who will watch. Once the documentary is finished, we will be submitting it to The Banff Film Festival and other venues for distribution. We will be writing an account of the trip and pitching that as a book to publishers. We want our message of our love for the wilderness to carry far and wide after we are done hiking.
