About the Film:
Following the Palmetto Trail as the guiding pathway from the mountains to the sea, the expedition will highlight the ‘CAROLINA 7’ – so-named for the seven geographic wonders unique to the Palmetto State. The purpose of the expedition is to bring attention to the natural marvels that need our protection and the myriad outdoor adventures that await us from our own backyards and beyond.
Stay for Q&A with Expedition Leader Tom Mullikin after the film.
The project has been inspired and led by Tom Mullikin. He has dived all of the world’s five oceans and climbed mountain ranges of the world’s seven tallest peaks (including reaching the summits of more than 20 mountains across the globe). He has served as a “National Geographic Expert,” is a Fellow in the famed Manhattan-based Explorer’s Club and a Fellow in London’s Royal Geographical Society.
A former U.S. Army JAG officer, Tom received certification as an Army Master Fitness Trainer, and he has since led members of the U.S. armed forces and veterans of the U.S. Army Special Forces community on expeditions around the world.
Currently serving as chair of the Governor’s S.C. Floodwater Commission (SCFC), Tom is leading the effort to build a flood-mitigating ocean-reef off the coast of South Carolina among other large SCFC projects, while simultaneously overseeing the work of his non-profit Global Eco Adventures.
