100 DAYS is the first-hand account of Explorer’s Club member and Survivorman-alumni Brett Rogers’ four-month rafting expedition down the Yukon River from Whitehorse, Yukon to the Bering Sea. Navigating nearly 1,800 miles of one of the world’s greatest, big wild rivers without burning a single tank of gas, the story that unfolds could never have been scripted – an Indian Chief’s funeral, an unsuccessful attempt at mutiny, a helicopter rescue for an injured teammate, and the discovery of a dead body in the middle of the Alaskan night.
Narrated by Les Stroud and Edited by Max Attwood, it’s taken more than five years since Rogers started planning the expedition to see 100 DAYS to completion. Rogers says, “It feels good to finally see the project complete. It’s been a long road, but one that I am glad I went down. I am excited to see how the doc is received.”
Brett has led expeditions on the Mackenzie, Yukon and Mississippi Rivers. The Mississippi expedition is Attwood and Rogers’ next release, entitled Old Man River, which is currently in post-production.
100 DAYS will air May 2011 on the Outdoor Life Network (OLN).
