Solo Road Trip

Mt. Shasta 1

I’ve always wanted to try this out. Driving a long ways by yourself gives you time to do a lot of things that you normally wouldn’t do. That’s mostly think or listen to stuff your normally wouldn’t do on a normal drive. I drove from Orange County, CA to Bend, OR while visiting some friends along the way that I hadn’t seen in a while. In retrospect I don’t know that I would go that far solo again (for fun at least) but you never know. I do think that the first 8-10 hours of driving is totally doable solo again.

Inyo National Forest

This past weekend was my good friend Morgan Nelson’s Bachelor party, so, we went camping. This place is about 20 miles outside Bishop, CA and is freaking amazing. Even after one of the driest winters we have ever had there was plenty of water still running down this awesome stream. The forest along the river was quite spectacular as well. Being inside a pretty narrow valley made the views spectacular. We were camped out around 9000 feet and the peaks were still about 2000 feet higher than we were. This is definitely a place to come back to, and with all the different locations we can choose from to camp I don’t think I’ll ever end up in the same spot because there is just so many good choices, although I would totally be okay if I retuned to the exact same spot.

Klamath Explore Project

The Klamath Explore Project is the second in a series of adventure videos where the guys from Tahoe SUP take to the water to explore places not normally seen by people. Thunderfish, my company, filmed this project and the second episode was a little bit delayed in the start of post production because of a lack of  post-filming interview footage that we just couldn’t get because of the schedules of the athletes in the film. Luckily, near the end of January, Ben North and Enoch Kim were able to get up to Tahoe and finish this thing out so I could get started on the main edit and finish the trailer. The trailer is to be released soon and as soon as it does it will end up here.

This project was definitely more interesting than the previous episode filmed around Catalina. First off, we had a better grasp on exactly what we wanted to achieve with this documentary and because of that we where able to focus on getting what was needed. We teamed up with the Klamath River Keepers in order to properly see the entirety of the river from as far up as Orleans, CA down to the mouth of the river that dumps into the Pacific. The secondary purpose of this documentary was to show how damns are so detrimental to a river, not only because it degrades water quality but also because it keeps the salmon that have swam up stream for centuries to spawn from being able to do their thing.

The rough cut is finished and I look forward to presenting the trailer and the full length in the near futre.
