EDGEtv Contributors be trippin’ hard lately. Peru, Germany, Panama, Italy, Greece, Tahoe…
And everywhere they go, they bring respect, mindfulness, and the spirit of adventure. We share these journies with you to (hopefully) inspire you to set out on one of your own. And by all means, send us stories and pics!
A Tale of Two Slackers

Imagine telling your dad you want to be a professional slackliner. Chances are, he’d say, “There’s no money in that!”
Gabriel uses his slack skills as a performer in a running show aboard the Royal Caribbean Cruiseline, Harmony of the Seas. Doing what you love in front of live audiences and taking your R&R in the luxury of a cruise ship? Not a bad way to make a living.
Igor is a performer in Cirque du Soleil’s Michael Jackson ONE in Las Vegas. Like a true Michael Corleone, he recently left Vegas for a slackline vacation at Lake Tahoe. There’s an offer you can’t refuse.

EDGEtv’s Creative Director and Designer, Charlie Tourtellotte, is tripping through Peru armed with a strong pair of legs and a camera. Last we heard, he was going to meet up with Contributor, Scott Witman, and shoot the shiznit.
We can’t wait to hear Charlie’s stories when he returns later this month. In the meantime, feast your eyes on these amazing images he is sharing with the world…
EDGEtv Senior Staff Writer, Jeff McElroy, recently wrapped work as Story Editor on a Patagonia film, Sea of Miracles, which tells the story of a small group of people in the Kaminoseki region of Japan protesting the construction of a massive nuclear power plant in their back yard. Jeff worked with Director, Dan Malloy, to sort through thousands of lines of interviews translated from Japanese to English to create the most engaging and powerful story possible.
Sea of Miracles is part of the Granted Film Series which highlights the good work of Patagonia grantees. The Granted Film Festival continues tonight at Patagonia Pasadena, tomorrow (Wednesday) at Patagonia Santa Monica, and Thursday at Patagonia Ventura. Come on out for good times, good beers, and good films!
