The number of people that have boated some of those creeks and falls is in the 100s, if that. My point was we all know what the Green and Colorado look like. With the funding and size of that film they could have gone somewhere much more unique and actually made a film FOR boaters, not one about them.And watching a movie about boating through a tiny island of wilderness back east is about as interesting and exciting as watching one about morning jogs through Central Park. I kid, I kid! To each their own! You gotta take the adventure you can find, I guess.
It's a big world and rivers are everywhere... The 1st choice for where (for me) would without doubt be Siberia. That obviously would be rather impossible right now. Mongolia (think Eastern PNW but bigger) or China are great choices as are Pakistan and India. I'm a sucker for thrills for sure, but I always enjoy a good documentary about the people and places. Its not about killer footage and expert eggheads but the journey and the struggle to see the unseen. Maybe because this was basically a turnkey trip (once the filming started) it lost all aspect of adventure... I guess simply put, if the river has a paved ramp and parking lot, I've already lost interest.What would that look like? What would you like to see (which rivers, carnage, instruction, etc.)
Of course I did...and if you watch the short film IDid you watch it? It’s not about boating as much as it is about that particular watershed and it’s issues. The multi day trip was the vehicle for getting the issues out to be discussed.
