A little about the show:
The Brigade will retrace an epic 2600-mile fur trade route. This historic route links
waterways from the coast of Oregon to the icy shores of Hudson Bay – all self-navigated – all self-propelled.
This is an expedition that can’t be tackled alone. THE BRIGADE must work together to survive, battling fierce whitewater, portaging over mountains, hunting and fishing for sustenance. Every team member is crucial to success.
There are no eliminations. This cooperative competition relies on collective strength to hang on against the odds. Those who complete the expedition in the time allotted will share the prize money.
We need adventurers:
With expedition experience
Strong paddling skills
Multi-skilled in outdoor abilities
Possess willpower, strength and determination
Ready to take on an epic cross-continent expedition that has not been attempted in 150
