Wood River Packrafting Expedition, featuring Ben Brochu & Luke Schmidt. Story, editing, & production by DB Palmer.

A first descent of the Wood River in British Columbia by Ben Brochu and Luke Schmidt. This trip features Kokopelli Packraft on a very difficult packrafting expedition that no one has been known to have ever paddled, or even traveled.

No information was available on the journey, so Ben and Luke trekked on faith, skills, and their own sense of adventure.

The story was developed by DB Palmer (Backcountry Professor) of Expeditionary Film School of Alaska, which specializes in expeditionary film edits.
