Hig and Erin Highlights Reel


  1. I'm really excited for this -- it looks like some great footage from their trip. Will this be released widely? That quote by Erin while walking through freezing water is great.

  2. Here's an email from Hig:

    "Hey Roman,

    So the documentary on our long trek is premiering in Anchorage in a few weeks here. I'm going to post about it on the packraft forums momentarily. I thought you might have a few people you could send a little blurb around to...

    Set fire to your frozen shoes. Cut your own hair with a pocket knife. Chop raw garlic with your teeth. And join Hig and Erin for the movie premier of their year-long journey along the North Pacific Coast.

    In June 2007, Hig and Erin left their former apartment in Seattle and walked north, 4000 miles to the Aleutian Islands. With only one rule: "no motorized transport", they made their way on foot, in packrafts, and on skis, through some of the most amazing and remote terrain in the world. Not just in summer, but through an entire Alaskan winter. This documentary was filmed with a tiny hand held video they carried with them. Experience this modern adventure through their eyes as they encounter breathtaking scenery, harsh weather, amazing wildlife, starvation, and danger.

    A feature-length documentary of their extraordinary year-long journey is premiering at the Anchorage International Film Festival on December 6th (7:45 PM at the Out North Theatre). Hig and Erin will attend both the premier and a second showing the next night (7:00pm, same place).

    Watch the preview, get more details, and download posters to print on their movie page. Also follow them on Twitter and Facebook for more updates."
