In late 2012, after around 6 months of planning, I finally set-off on my first solo trip. It was a 3 day, 70km canoe journey into an area of Australia known as the Noosa Everglades. At the time, Hike or Die was nothing more than an idea but I decided to film as much of the trip as possible even though I didn’t know what I was going to use the footage for. It was unwatched and stored on my hard drive for about 9 months until I remembered it again this year. Watching back the footage brought back many memories and that’s when I thought that it might make a great Hike or Die TV episode. It’s taken me a lot longer to edit than I anticipated with “real” life often getting in the way and it’s split across 2 episodes due to the length.
In this episode (Part 1) you’ll see me embark on the journey and quickly realize just how huge the task was ahead of me. I have a few problems with my canoe but overall I make good progress and the best part for anybody watching is, I managed to capture some of the natural beauty of the area.
I really hope that you enjoy this episode as much as I loved putting it together for you.
