‘Raft the Grand Canyon’ Music Video Is So Nerdy, It’s Hip
In what could be described as a millennial version of Weird Al in the wild, a band of jolly river rats sing, dance, and raft the Grand Canyon.
The Grand Canyon is no joke.
Nobody knows that better than BackpackingTV’s Eric Hanson and his buddy Dan Becker. The two saw a fairly standard — if still strenuous — Rim-to-Rim backpacking trip go sideways when Becker started suffering from nausea and the worst chest pain he’d ever experienced.
Hanson being Hanson, he didn’t miss the opportunity to keep filming, and the result is a pretty good primer on backcountry emergency decision-making. Give it a watch and be glad you aren’t Dan Becker (he’s OK, though).
Runtime: 22 minutes
