So on point! Planning my first bikepack mission for the spring, can’t wait (and can’t believe its taken me so long to tackle this aspect of cycling).

Stay Wild Magazine – Kickstarter

Justin Morrison aka Scrappers is a man of many activities; drawing, painting, camping, surfing, moto riding and i am sure the list goes on. Born on Vancouver Island and now based in Portland, Scrappers is all about the adventure life and he wants to share and explore that with you, so much so he is looking to launch a free adventure/lifestyle mag called STAY WILD. To help get things off the ground he has started a Kickstarter page to raise money for the printing costs of the first issue. This looks like it is going to be a super rad publication, one I can fully support and if you feel the same head on over to the Kickstarter and throw down in the name of adventure…

Road To Nowhere

Desillusion Magazine proudly presents Road to Nowhere, a behind the scenes movie by Tomas Hein about his latest road trip deep into north Britain as seen in Desillusion Magazine 44.

“What happened to the dream of surfing in remote breaks? The answer is simple: it was always there and all I needed was determination”

Beautifully shot and edited with a great soundtrack, more stellar video content from Desillusion.

‘Setting out on this journey, we left the dock with a rough idea of what to expect; fishing, exploring by boat, bush-whacking with bikes while burdened with camera packs, camping, and possibly a bear or two. After a week at sea we learned the hardships and enjoyment of balancing a lifestyle of sustenance, exploration and documenting the journey.’

Large shouts to the homie Derek Dix for imagining then making this trip happen. The fully narrated story with photo essay premiered over on Pinkbike so make sure to check that out as well. This province never ceases to amaze, and it always gets me stoked to see good people documenting their explorations to share with others, fuelling the fire.
