The video clip is pulled from hours of footage shot from the Milo by Fred Dickerson and Matt McNeil during their 4 week epic filming the ‘Alaskan Sessions’. They are finishing up editing the video which will be at film festivals and available on dvd sometime in 2012. We’ll keep you posted.

By Mid-November the M/V Milo’s crew was all aboard, once again we fueled up, grubbed up and north we went.
