About feetforbrains

Crowd sourced immersive hiking, backpacking, and running experiences for anyone. Enjoy walking through dense Puget Sound forests. Section hike the Pacific Crest Trail. Descend and reemerge from the Grand Canyon. We'll be adding new and interesting content for you to take to your treadmill, elliptical machine, stair climber, or Nordic Track all the time.

What?
Okay, yeah so it's a little confusing. Let me explain. The idea is something like a recording of rain that you listen to in order to help yourself sleep and a video you watch at the gym while you're on an exercise machine. The intent is to feel like you're walking or hiking someplace you're not or can't be.

Why?
For the same reason you might listen to music or watch a TV program while you're doing something else. Just like music, immersive imagery and sound can both enhance the workout experience and improve your performance. Also, and this is a big part of my motivation, these shared experiences help others form a deeper appreciation for the places they virtually visit.

Who?
You're one man production crew is me, sometimes, but not always accompanied by my trusty companion Lyra. Other than occasional pictures you shouldn't see much of me, but I'm the guy behind the lenses.

I've been hiking, backpacking and trail running most of my life and now I get to bring my love and passion for public lands and wilderness to you.

How does this all work?
Trail magic are acts of kindness offered to hikers and horseback riders along major thru hikes. Magic includes gifts of time and attention, but is always a positive outreach that builds community and connects people. I don't have a lot, I'm working from a small bucket of resources. Patreon is an opportunity and a request, share a little with me, so I can share something with you. Let's make magic.

Hey! Let's talk about improving my camera. Most of my footage is shot on a GoPro 7 Silver. It does a reasonably good job of capturing a walking or hiking point of view, but tends to fracture around high contrast moments and may fail to deliver panoramic vistas as I experience them on the trail.
