Have you ever spent a really cold night in the backcountry? Imagine
traveling over 130 days on the Pacific Crest Trail through the winter
<https://www.pcta.org/discover-the-trail/backcountry-basics/snow/>. What a
crazy idea.

A new feature-length movie named SNOW TO SAND captures Shawn “Pepper” Forry
and Justin “Trauma” Lichter on their historic winter PCT expedition
The New York Times called the 2015 adventure “the most daring and foolhardy
wilderness expedition since Lewis and Clark.” The duo’s incredible athletic
feat presented a unique story about man, nature, and self, set against a
global backdrop about humankind’s role in managing the natural world.

I just watched this film and found it worthy of my time and money.

It's not the usual hiker style video with an awesome soundtrack. Instead, I
would say it's a bit more introspective as intended, with some wise owls
narrating in lieu of music accompaniment.

Yes, there is a fee.

It can be rented for $2.99 and purchased for $9.99.



Get out there!
