SYNOPSIS

On August 6, 2018 Stephen Schreader and Eli Nord launched on a self-made 1,000-mile journey around the arrowhead region of Minnesota by bike, canoe and foot, using primarily Minnesota-made gear. Their trip would take them through mining country and deep into the wilderness while giving a grand nod to Minnesota history, culture and trails. As with all great adventures, not everything goes as planned.

 

Follow these two acquaintances as their friendship develops and they attempt to complete an epic homemade adventure with over 6 weeks of trekking and their two dogs in tow.
