If you've ever spent any time on a river -- without a motor -- and were a young adult in the 70's...this film is like somebody opening a window in a stuffy room. The sights, sounds, and abundant nudity will wash over you like an icy jade wave....it's a joy to see brothers & sisters of the "Royal Order of the Rocket Box" who went there too, fellow veterans of multi-day raft trips with all the attendant psuedo-philosophizing, coitus, group & individual angst, transactional dynamics and joyful dysfunction.
Juxtaposing the archival footage with the "where are they today?" clips was brilliant filmmaking...kind of like Michael Apted's 48-up, but with better scenery and more dramatic hydraulics!
If you've ever stuffed all your worldly possessions in a drybag, hoisted a 200 quart cooler and suffered 3rd degree Teva tan.....you'll love it!
