Cameos

It's been a little quiet around here lately with winter and the holidays slowing things down a bit. I'm getting around to editing photos and writing up some older stories so expect some new work soon.

In the meantime, enjoy a few links to some recent articles/videos I've made cameos in.

First up, Steve and Andrew's "Undercity" video:

UNDERCITY from Andrew Wonder on Vimeo.

Yep, that's me with the mohawk trying to be the voice of reason. It just didn't seem like a terribly good idea to climb the bridge right after the cops failed to find what they were looking for on it. I figured that if they got a second call they would look a lot harder that time and I wasn't in the mood to risk arrest on a bridge I'd already climbed for Steve's video, so I went home. Luckily for Steve, I was wrong and he ended up with a pretty fantastic video.

Also Steve-related is the recent NY Times Article about his adventures with Erling Kagge. I was mostly just helping out with transportation and logistics. I originally planned on joining in on a few of the adventures, but the size of the group including the media (not to mention the snowstorm) made those locations unmanageable. There was a great dinner at Jacki Lyden's place after the expedition for all the participants. It was pretty great to hear stories from Erling about shooting and eating polar bears on his North Pole expedition.

In other news, Snappel has started posting some of the adventures we shared on his visit to the US back in 2009. Be sure to check it out. This is some of the stuff that I'll be writing about in the near future.

For now a little taste, Snappel on the QB:
