A while ago I saw this posted on the Qajaq USA forum, but didn't bother watching the movie trailer. I recommend taking the time to download one of the movie files from the Alexius Baidarka Journey site before viewing it: the movie seemed to have problems streaming for me.
Swedish craftsman Lars Alexius plans a 5000 km solo expedition along the Canadian coastline from Kodiak Island, Alaska to Northern California in a baidarka made of driftwood and canvas. Check out the kit he's bringing: clothes handmade of cotton waterproofed with beeswax and oil, skins and furs, underwear made from old wool military blankets, flint for fire, and a laptop and camera of course, but no credit card. He plans to hunt, fish, and live off the sea. It would be pretty damn amazing if he pulls it off. I sure hope he gets started. Check out his skimpy sponsors list. Hey where are all the Kokatat, NDK, Werner, Snapdragon, Clif Bar logos? Oh, I guess he won't be needing them for the trip... which is the whole point isn't it?
