As we speak the Motiv crew is holed up in Panama City where they just retrieved their rig. Next is clearing out the mice, hitting 4x4s Are Us, then loading her on a container for Cartagena where they will embark on the next leg of their intercontinental road trip. The jungles of Columbia lie ahead and will likely make that trip through Mexico and Central America seem like a Sunday drive through Chula Vista. Armed with the proper permits, a drone and a well armed escort, they will be heading into areas that have not seen a gringo in decades. Tales of Peacock Bass that defy imagination have trumped the spectre of a jungle encounter with the cartels, FARC or Joan Wilder.
Yes, you could stay home tonight and watch the first of the three Presidential debates. But since you already know who you're going to vote for, head down to the Galaxy Theater in Gig Harbor tonight for Gig Harbor Fly Shop's screening of Low and Clear and River as Spirit: Rebirth of the Elwha.
In addition to the fine films and craft suds from 7 Seas Brewing, there will be a raffle featuring a Scott Fiberhammer switch rod graciously arranged for by Cameron at The Fiberglass Manifesto, as well as some very nice Patagonia gear.
The films start at 7:00 and tickets are available for $10 in the shop, and $12 at the door.
Lunchtime in Sacajamea Park: White cavalry tents shield crew and company from the mountain sun, as Redford sits alone beside his aluminum teapot of a trailer, a classic Airstream. Like "River's" props, it might as well be vintage. He's immersed himself in the Macleans' era, hanging photos of their family, reading Paul's newspaper columns, playing Norman's taped lectures and studying his letters.
The Washington Post did this in-depth background piece on A River Runs Through It just prior to the movies premier in D.C. in October of 1992.
