This short film was recently featured on National Geographic in their short films showcase. A story of two canoeists in their 70s who are still out there kickin it. It’s too good not to share.
“35 years after their first visit to the Noatak River in Alaska’s wild and spectacular Brooks Range, two adventurers in their 70’s reflect on a lifetime of outdoor experiences and what still awaits them.
In this 14-minute short film, the filmmakers behind MILE… MILE & A HALF follow these friends along one of the longest rivers in the US unaltered by civilization. The film premiered at the 2016 Banff Mountain Film Festival and has screened with the Wild & Scenic Film Festival Tour and Dances With Films.”

Cool video… What do you think about those guys “never having set up a pack boat before”? I’d of thought a trial run before the trip would be a good idea. Anyway, thanks for sharing this. Looking forward to seeing you and your crew out on the water this year.
lol I agree with you Kat, although at this point, these dudes are 70, they can do whatever they want haha. I’m eager to get out there! Hope everyone is enjoying life at mowich camp!
Amazing. I hope to be so lucky at that age.
