Relaxed style with even more laid back narration makes for a highly enjoyable documentary. Keith, Jerry and two others hike, trek, yomp, chop, fell, build and raft their way through the Yukon. (I understand from trawling online they also did it later without the camera crew! and a book exists with the same title). Some serious sawdogging work bring the guys some 20 trees which they fashion into a 10 ton raft taking them over 2,000 miles out to the Bering sea. Almost 25 years on from first view the film can be enjoyed almost for the beards alone - but as a young boy getting a taste the spirit of adventure through the screen was wonderful. My desire to complete my own Yukon passage remains. Whethere I'll manage the bacon and eggs they did (in the middle of nowhere) is as as yet unknown...... Oh, and did I mention the Mounties, the Can-can dancers, the girl guides, the boxing club and the marching Kazoo band! - this has got the lot... enjoy.
