As you may have guessed, my name is Alex. I'm here for a few reasons, but mainly for assistance.
In about a year and a half I'm going to be filming a documentary on Nature and Wildlife Conservation up here in Canada where I'll be hiking in a straight line from Edmonton, AB to Vancouver, BC (with a 20km leeway on either side of the line). For those who don't know where either of those places are, they're both located on the west side of Canada. The distance between them is roughly 820km (510miles).
I've just recently come into contact with a few barefoot communities and really wanted to give it a shot. However, I wanted to integrate this walk of mine with barefooting! I'm just not quite sure how quickly my body can acclimatize to the stresses that I'll face during this trip.
So! You'll see a few topics popping up everywhere on this forum by me asking some questions, the more help the merrier!
I'm sure I'll get to know (and perhaps meet) some great people on these boards!
