February 2002. My FIRST travel video. While living in Maryland I met Dan Granofsky, aka Goatlegs. Dan was a fellow National Guardsman and we connected on our love for hiking in the great outdoors. He quickly became my mentor with his vast knowledge and experience traveling to many cool destinations. We teamed up and he took me to the Catskills, a wilderness area in New York. I was just getting into making travel videos and this was our first pairing up as we tackled cold temps, icy trails and learned how to deal with each other’s strange mannerisms. Enjoy.
