Over the coming months, the team at Duct Tape Then Beer will be rolling out six short films on a variety of outdoor topics. Remember the t hree types of fun? Here's a refresher.

Type 1 -- Fun in the truest sense of the word. This is fun to plan. Fun to do. Fun to talk about afterwards. For example, a powder day, climbing on a perfect fall day.

Type 2 -- Fun in theory. Character building in the moment. As selective memory takes over, it becomes fun. For example, anything involving the word alpinism.

Type 3 -- Life changing. This is the moment when things go wrong and leave a lasting imprint on who we are.

With this in mind, we set out to create six films that encompass the breadth of fun. Some feature just plain fun and others go to our community's complicated issues. There is no website, no facebook page dedicated to the project. The project will live through you. If you watch one of the pieces and it speaks to you, please share it. We will do our best to keep you posted. Our first film The Gimp Monkeys came out last week. We've been really pleased by how it's been received. I'm excited to see it on the big screen at this year's Banff Mountain Film Festival.

Thanks, Fitz, Becca and the Duct Tape crew
