Overexposed: My Strange Life on America's Toughest Trail

Last month Lynne Whelden, lightweight backpacking guru, and veteran of the Appalachian and Pacific Crest Trails, published his latest DVD film, "Overexposed: My Strange Life on America's Toughest Trail". This three-hour documentary provides a day by day account of Lynne's border to border adventure on the Continental Divide Trail.

The video is the tenth in a series of hiking and backpacking films that Whelden has produced since the early 1980s. Using a high-definition video camera for the first time, this project took 7 years to complete. Lynne's goal was to bring the glory of the mountains right into your living room.

In his "The Long Distance Hiker" newsletter (winter 2011), Mike Cunningham had this to say: "I will confess that I think that Lynne Whelden is one of, if not THE, finest producers of backpacking/outdoor films."

Cunningham also had this to say about Overexposed: "The photography is exquisite. The scenery is awe-inspiring. The sound track is amazing."

The film is available in regular widescreen format or on blu-ray. For more information on the video, please click here.
