The Team

The team was – Sparky, Joker, Falcon, Paul, Stoner, Clobber and Warden.

The Adventure

7 men, one raft and one canoe and lots and lots of gear. The team took turns piloting the raft and paddling the canoe. 


The BRAT dinner table. Something introduced to us be Clobber many year ago and it stuck.


Lots of breaks to scout the river and enjoy the moments. The river valley was both deadly and gorgious 

Good Times

The BRAT explored the Nahanni River during the summer of 2009. No images or video have been released until now. It’s not great, but the adventure was!
