Video: West on Deerfoot with Leon McCarron and Alastair Humphreys

A few years back, British adventurers Leon McCarron and Alastair Humphreys make an epic journey on foot through the Empty Quarter on the Arabian Peninsula. They made a film about their adventure that was later accepted into the Banff Film Festival. The boys were so excited about this turn of events, that they decided to fly to Canada to attend the premiere of their documentary. But in true adventurous style, they didn’t just want to hop a bus from the airport to Banff, but instead decided to travel their on foot. This short film takes us along with them on that journey, which turned out to be a great little adventure through parts of Canada. The clip also holds true to Alastair’s philosophy on microadventures, which encourages us to look for small adventures that we can undertake in our own backyard. I hope you enjoy.
