about the feetforbrains
Crowdsourced immersive hiking, backpacking, and running experiences for anyone. Enjoy walking through dense Puget Sound forests. Section hiking the Pacific Crest Trail. Descend and reemerge from the Grand Canyon. We’ll be adding new and interesting content for you to take to your treadmill, elliptical machine, stair climber, or Nordic Track all the time.
I also write science fiction, and fantasy as well as a bunch of articles. You can check out my bibliography if you’re so inclined. This blog was originally a place for me to vent. Almost no one read it and so it was mostly a safe space for me to express my worries and frustrations. That said, I’ve been considering moving much of my day-to-day writing to my Patreon where I can more closely manage who reads what. I’m looking at you American Health Care system, directly at you.
Okay, yeah so it’s a little confusing. Let me explain. The idea is something like a recording of rain that you listen to in order to help yourself sleep. I make videos you watch at the gym while you’re on an exercise machine. The intent is to feel like you’re walking or hiking someplace you’re not or can’t be.
For the same reason, you might listen to music or watch a TV program while you’re doing something else. Just like music, immersive imagery and sound can both enhance the workout experience and improve your performance. Also, and this is a big part of my motivation, these shared experiences help others form a deeper appreciation for the places they virtually visit.
