When first I was exploring rivers, a time ago, it was a daunting feat to plump over a 20' waterfall and survive. Now, the bar has risen to what was once incomprehensible. The current record for paddling over a waterfall, and surviving, is 189'.

My brother and I paddled the rivers from source to sea in 2013 and we've made a 48-minute documentary film about the journey and the water wars, not from the perspective of talking heads, but from the voices of people like Tony who know the river.
