I love the cold and winter, but with a temp of -12 this morning, I can’t say I’m sad to be heading with @wendebvalentine and the kids to #Guatemala and some warmer temperatures!

Had an amazing night last night with @davidcmorton and @jimaikman celebrating Willi Unsoeld as part of the Unsoeld Seminar at Evergreen State College. Over 900 people turned out to see our film, High and Hallowed, and to celebrate all that Willi did in his amazing life, cut short in 1979. A Phd in Theology, Director of Peace Corps Nepal, father of experiential education, huge influencer in Outward Bound, founder of Evergreen State… the list goes on. And, with Tom Hornbein, made the first ascent of the West Ridge of Everest on May 22, 1963. This photo was taken on the West Should of #Everest at about 24,000 feet. Huge thanks to Evergreen State College, Tom Hornbein, everyone who came out, and especially the Unsoeld family.@eddiebauer #williunsoeld

#KMF2013 was a joy to be a part of, and @davidcmorton @jimaikman @eddiebauer and I are honored to have #highandhallowed be a part of it. Amazing films, great people, lots of laughs and learning. Highlight for me was a flashback to 1924 with the screening of John Noel’s stunning “The Epic of Everest” – beautifully restored by the BFI.

@pedromcbride @davidcmorton and I hit the physical end of our #GangaS2S journey at Ganga Sagar, where the sacred #Ganges River meets the Bay of Bengal. It was 6 weeks and 1500+ miles of challenge, adventure, and learning. But, much of the story is just beginning; we have a film in the works and stories to write and share. Stay tuned for more, and as always huge thanks to our sponsors and partners: @microsoftcorporation #Surface @eddiebauer @natgeo #Ambuja @vapur #clifbar #Julbo #deLorme #beyondcoastal @blackdiamond #voltaic

Relaxing, #Calcutta style. One of the few places you can still find hand-rickshaws, our #GangaS2S expedition down the #Ganges took us to this amazing city on the Bay of Bengal via the #Hooghly River. An amazing city full of colonial charm, immense hustle and bustle, and places to catch a nap, too. @pedromcbride @davidcmorton @eddiebauer @microsoftcorporation #Surface.

Not even a #cyclone can stop a good party! In #Patna, Bihar, @davidcmorton @pedromcbride @ashleymosher and I ran into the remains of cyclone #Phailin dumping rain throughout the city. But it didn’t dampen the spirits of #Durga Puja celebrations: people donned plastic sheets, got wet, and kept on celebrating. @microsoftcorporation #surface @eddiebauer @natgeo and #Ambuja made #GangaS2S possible…thank you!
