I missed this project when it was live on Kickstarter, however, had I caught it while it was still going, I definitely would have backed this project. Why? Well, honestly, because the trailers I watched for it looked awesome! Straight up, awesome! But, I will let you decide…
I have never been on the John Muir Trail, or in the Sierra’s for that matter, however, I have heard of the trail, and of course all that I have heard about it is that it is extremely beautiful. And after watching the trailer for Mile… Mile & A Half, I saw just that… and I wanted more… Of course though, heading out to hike the JMT is a bit beyond my means at the moment, so this film seemed like the next-best-thing for me at the time.
Now, this film was showing in theaters here and there, however, it was mostly along the west coast, thousands of miles from me. So, I waited, and as soon as I saw the movie available for preorder, I jumped on it and preordered my very own copy on BluRay. Then, earlier this week, it finally showed up at my door…
I couldn’t resist, and watched the movie the first night I had it, and it was excellent. The quality is no less than the best. Both the video and the sound are full high def, which really depicts the trail as being majestic. However, other than just the video and sound quality, the actual composure of each shot kept pulling me in, and gently leading me into the next scene… Due to the actual clarity of the film, and the depth in which their stories were told, this film really made me feel like I was there, without actually being there… of course.
I have got to say, I am very impressed with the movie, and plan to wear this disc out, watching it over & over… And it’s not just the movie, but I have even watched the “Extra’s,” and must say that I have really enjoyed those too. Overall, this movie and all of its extra’s: definitely two thumbs up in my opinion, and I will be recommending this film to others.
But that’s not all…
While the movie was still available for preorder, I decided to also purchase 1 other copy on DVD to give away. And not only that, I also have one of their 5 oz flasks that I am bundling with the movie in the giveaway!
So, how do you win? Well, for this give away, I have decided to try out Rafflecopter. Unfortunately though, it is not compatible with the free WordPress platform that I use to host my blog. So, to enter the contest, you will need to actually click on the link below to get to the actual Rafflecopter Give Away, and to enter via any, or all, of the 5 possible methods:
As for the details:
The contest is open to everyone, however, I will only provide free First Class basic shipping via USPS to those in the lower 48. For any others outside of the lower 48, I will cover up to $10 (USD) for shipping, however, anything more than this amount will need to be covered by the winner. The winner will need to send me the difference in the cost as a PayPal gift. Once I receive the money, I will drop the package in the mail. The package will be shipped via the most basic, least expensive option.
The contest will run until Saturday, October 19th, at midnight. After the contest ends, Rafflecopter will also be used to pick the winner, which I will announce sometime Sunday morning. After doing so I will attempt to reach the winner, likely via email, to get the shipping info. I will give the winner 48 hours to respond. If I get no response within 48 hours, I will select a second winner, and so on…
So, good luck to everyone! And for those that may not be able to wait that long, you can visit The Muir Project and place an order for a copy anytime.
Thanks for stopping by!
