The wild wacky and a little bit zany, Willow Jon river rafts, plays music, makes friends with mischievous little monkeys, swims in a volcanic mud bath and continues his world wide tour of joy through Colombia and Ecuador. Enjoy!
Willow Jon continues his world adventures with a trip to South America where his curiosity, enthusiasm, and gigantic appetite for adventure are even bigger than ever. Animals, smiles, music, butterflies, pristine beaches, laughter and more. What else could your ask for?
Check out my audition tape for TLC’s show, “Cheapskates” I had so much fun skating around town, eating berries, doing back flips, playing guitar, getting free samples, hitchhiking, and sleeping in my hammock to show people how you can live life the Willow Jon way, like a professional cheap-skater. “Cheap, Cheap, Cheap Skating along! Just Cheap, Cheap, Cheap, Skating along!”
Willow Jon and April Joga ride Odessa and Eclips up Green Water trail to Echo lake in the great pacific northwest state of Washington, crossing creeks and bridges, under old growth forest with sunlight breaking through past wildlife and hikers, to a very peaceful place.. Some of the steep cliffs got my heart rate up a bit but I had to trust my horse. What a thrill.
In the fall of 2009 I took a trip to Thailand, Cambodia, and Loas. I filmed my experience playing music with the locals, exploring the captivating islands of southern Thailand, adventuring through the jungles of Cambodia to historic Anchor Watt, and chartering a slow boat and floating down the Mekong river for seven days with twelve strangers. As my English mate Simon would say. “It was pure Genius!”
I’ve been skating since I was about 8. I remember people riding banana boards on ramps in Sedona, Arizona behind the trailer I lived in. I got a board and I was hooked. Here’s a video of me skating in the birthplace of Skateboarding, Santa Monica and Venice Beach California.
Wandering in the mountains of Montanita, Ecuador I came across Haciento and the Canopy Montanita zip lines adventure crew. Turns out I was just in time to shoot a video so I jumped into the pickup truck and we went to town and picked up an excited group of people and jostled them back to the zip lines. It’s quiet something flying through the clouds like a bird looking all around at the beautiful beaches, trees, mountains, and sky.
Travel Reality show, TRAVELING EXPOSED host Willow Jon spontaneously spins a globe picking a destination at random, then he must travel there and not only survive, but thrive for one week with no money, contacts, guidebooks, or maps to see what happens when imagination becomes the new form of currency.
There is a mystical connection I share with the horse. When they allow me onto their backs we become one. I am free and powerful and connected to an energy larger than myself. Watching the foals explore with the world for the first time and play as a family is so very special to be around. I met April Joga a few years ago when I was playing a cowboy in an indie film and we have stayed friends ever since. April’s love, hard work, and commitment to understanding and communicating with her horses is very inspirational.
