I've been an intermittent camper/paddler since my teens, but now that my kids are avid Boy Scouts, I've caught the backpacking bug. I typically do 8-10 weekend hikes per year, and have spent time over the past few years backpacking the Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico and canoeing the Canadian wilderness. I like to travel "in comfort", but I've shrunk to medium weight, and continue to work toward going lighter and longer. With all of my investment into these ventures, I expect my wife and I will continue to trek long after the kids are gone�

Tell It on the Mountain: Tales from the Pacific Crest Trail is a documentary presented in DVD format which follows "a half dozen of the 300 or so hikers who attempt a PCT thru-hike every year." The DVD comes nicely packaged in a fold-out cover which depicts a solitary hiker climbing the side of a lonely trail with peaks in the distance. The back has a photo of a small group of hikers making their way up a snowy mountainside. The back also has a short 3-paragraph description of the Pacific Crest Trail and teases about the struggle to hike it. There is an intriguing notation that "Fewer people have thru-hiked the PCT than have climbed Mt. Everest." I did not know this fact, and it definitely intrigues me. The website mentioned on the DVD cover is a fairly simple affair, where a visitor can buy the DVD (or download the digital version). There are also some photos and videos, presumably of a few of the individuals that have thru-hiked it, and a few news items about the trail.
INITIAL IMPRESSIONS and EXPECTATIONS
After receiving and examining over the DVD, I'm definitely intrigued to watch it. I hope it is as interesting as it looks!
This concludes my Inital Report on the Tell It on the Mountain DVD. Please check back in a few weeks and I will give my impressions after watching it.
