Obviously I'm Ryan.
"AimlessRyan" grew out of a project I originally intended to become a low-budget (or no-budget) documentary film chronicling what it's like to travel all over the United States with no predetermined direction or destination, living out of a backpack, essentially as a bum with a camera (hitchhiking, walking, eventually trainhopping, etc.). However, it became something more like a way of life, which evolved several times and ended with me walking 3,463 miles across the United States, from Santa Monica, CA to Coney Island, NYC. Even though I have maybe 150 hours of video, there probably will never be a documentary. (There may be some books someday, though.)
If you check out the Aimless web site
, you'll probably think I'm a dick, and you'll probably be right. But even though the web site has a considerable amount of content (some videos and hundreds of blog posts), the web site is about 10 percent representative of who I am and what my travels have been like. Even though I seem pretty miserable in a lot of the blog posts I wrote while I was on the road, and even though this project never amounted to what I once hoped, I wouldn't trade my travels for anything.
