Expedition Dudetrek

On December 31st, New Years Eve 2019-2020, I arrived in San Jose Del Cabo at the southern tip of the Baja Peninsula in Mexico to begin a 55,000(ish) mile journey and ethnoecological survey of the places we call home- that is to say, I’m going to hike and paddle in an extremely zig-zaggy fashion from Baja to Newfoundland to ask the following questions of every one in every place-


  • How does the local environment shape people? (Their jobs, history, characters, history, art, politics)

  • How do local people shape their environment? (Flora, fauna, soil, freshwater and saltwater, atmosphere, rocks and minerals)
  • What are the relationships people have with plants and animals and nonliving resources (for natural resources, tourism, folklore, medicine, food, water, shelter, clothing)

    It was great talking to you on the flight down. Good luck on your epic journey. I look forward to following along!

    What an amazing, epic plan! Do you have a plan on where you intend to be when? I see you will be doing a good bit in Central Florida and would be willing to help out when you are in the area.

      Timeline is pretty flexible. All i know right now is tbat i’ll be heading down to Baja in about a wee in a half and i’ll just go with the flow from there. I’ll keep you in mind when i get down to Florida!

Ask me anything, tell me something I don't know, or just say hi!
