Welcome to the new 7Zillion website. Things are still developing around here so pardon the "mess" and be sure to check back soon and often!

I am one of those guys who enjoys being a kid. Or maybe I am simply incapable of being an adult. Like most kids my age, I love being outside. The outdoors provides so many wonderful experiences, and it pains me to see a growing number of people voluntarily caging themselves inside for most of their lives.

I want to give back. I want to help establish a new "underground railroad" to help kids (young and old) escape from their self-imposed entrapment. Join me, and get out!
