::Travel Tuesday:: 180 Degrees South

Travel Tuesday is here to share a super rad film all about adventure, travel, and eco awareness. The story of Yvon Chouinard, the founder of Patagonia Clothing, and environmentalist extraordinaire. We follow Chouinard and his friend Doug Tompkins' 5,000 trip of 1968 from Ventura, CA to Patagonia, South America is paralleled by Jeff Johnson in 2007. The story shares Chouinard and Tompkins adventures through photos and stories while following Johnson's adventure with beautiful footage and amazing scenery.

I totally identify with the passion, energy, tenacity and adventure of these men (and woman) and this film. If you haven't seen 180 Degrees South I highly recommend it. It you are a netflix user you can watch it instantly on your computer or iPad.

“The word adventure has gotten overused. For me, when everything goes wrong, that's when adventure starts” -Yvon Chouinard
