Here are some comments from Ben and Jesse….
The new title from Clear H2o Films that is set to release May 1st is The Lost World, Hotel Charley vol. 3. The meat of the feature length film features First Descents of wild, freeflowing rivers from the Northern Peninsula of Newfoundland, the extremely remote Twang Region of India, and a descent down the soon to be dammed inner gorge of Brazil’s longest river, the Rio San Fransisco. In search of this proverbial Lost World that exists in the world’s last unseen gorges are film producers and 2007 National Geographic Adventure Heroes Ben Stookesberry and Jesse Coombs.

Along with Jesse and Ben is a cast of characters that is as diverse as the locations in the film. From the ultra talented paddlers of Team Jackson including Eric jackson, Dane Jackson, Nick Troutman, Joel Kowolski, Chris Korbulic, and Darin McQuoid pushing the envelope in roadless Northern Newfoundland; to the stories and supper smooth of Indian/ Nepally Kayaker Lama Kundan in the farthest off corner of India situated between China and Bhutan.

In addition to the feature length film, the DVD the lost world will be jam packed with Bonus features including more incredible multi-day expeditions from Southwest BC, the Wind River Range of Wyoming, and Colorado’s Southern Rockies.

If that’s not enough Jesse and I want share our 3 week attempt to train writer Thayer Walker to become a class V boater; we called it the Crash Course. As a self proclaimed class 4 boater, Thayer spends 14 river days training in class 5 water in order to become a battle ready Expedition Boater. This is in addition to a Men’s Fitness feature article of the same name that is set to release in April of this year.
