In this episode Pete and Jon embark on their journey down the West Coast. Starting in Calgary, AB they travel through the mountains to Kamloops and then over to Vancouver, BC which Peter barely survives the Grouse Grind scenic hike in Vancouver. After that, they successfully make the border crossing into the US and head down to Seattle to pick up Michael Dimarco.

In Episode 3 of Media Goes, the trio visits Portland and Pete loses two bets.
In episode 4 of Media Goes, we travel down the coast from Portland, Oregon to Newport, Oregon and then down to the Brewery Gulch Inn. Along our way we passed through the incredible Redwood Forest.
After a brief journey through wine country, we spent a night in San Francisco and then made our way to the legendary Yosemite. It as incredible to see the number of climbers on the face of El Capitan even during wind and rain.
David Thompson is one of the founders of the WFPF or World Freerunning and Parkour Federation and the International Parkour Federation (IPF). Originally this interview was going to be included with our other LA experiences but we would have had too much from LA for one episode so we made this shorter episode about our sponsor, the WFPF. We hope you enjoy learning about one of the most influential organizations in the parkour community. The World Freerunning & Parkour Federation is dedicated to the safe and respectful advancement of the Parkour & Freerunning Movement throughout the world. Inspired by the creativity and mental discipline embodied by Parkour and Freerunning, the athletes and founders of the WFPF will faithfully bring this philosophy of movement to the growing numbers of optimistic young people around the globe who believe that through camaraderie, self-expression, and service to others, there is no obstacle that cannot be overcome.
In episode 7 we shoot at the Porsche Experience Centre in LA and Peter faces his fear of roller coasters at Knott's Berry Farm.
Johnny Korthuis is an adventure athlete based out of Laguna, California but originally from Lethbridge, Alberta. Johnny is a high level athlete in multiple sports such as rock climbing, several forms of biking, sky diving, wing suiting, parkour, gymnastics, and base jumping. We hope you enjoy watching Johnny ride trials in Laguna Beach, California. The music during the biking scene is by Leeroy Stagger, an amazing musician from Lethbridge, Alberta.
