Welcome. I’m film maker Bernie Harberts. This site is about the Lost Sea Expedition TV series, the documentary about my 14 month wagon voyage from Canada to Mexico. I filmed the whole voyage right out of my solar powered wagon – no sponsor, chase crew or support vehicle. The series premiered on Rocky Mountain PBS. Climb aboard. Let’s go see America!
The series premiered on Rocky Mountain PBS in early 2018. We’ll let you know when it airs again.

Mule Polly and I traveled alone across America filming the Lost Sea Expedition series. But turning that footage in to a Rocky Mountain PBS series? Well, that took an Emmy award winning, paint slinging, web hosting team of producer, consultants, illustrator, audio engineer and web guys. Meet Julia, Will, Deni, Charlie, Chris, Christian and Keith.
A bridge, a bull and people’s opposing religious beliefs remain as obstacles. The Wall with Mexico proves less of an issue. It’s Episode 4, the final segment of the Lost Sea Expedition series. Join me this coming Thursday (January 28) on Rocky Mountain PBS (8pm), Amazon Prime and Vimeo as we finish our mule wagon voyage across America together. Plenty more videos, including trailers for all 4 episodes, are here on the Videos, Trailers and Extras page.
5-star thanks to everyone who’s reviewed the Lost Sea Expedition on the series’ Amazon, Vimeo and Facebook pages. We’d love if you left a review of your own. They’re quick and fun to write. Plus, they really help us. Leave yours right here:
“Bernie…..have you lost your DAMN mind?” That’s what folk artist Charlie Frye said when I asked him to paint 30 paintings for the Lost Sea Expedition the series about my 14 month wagon mule voyage across America.
You know it’s a good party when the film maker (me) leaves the movie’s premier party without any photos.

Missing some cash? The Lost Sea Expedition fundraiser has gone viral among dogs and they’ve been making unusually large number of cash donations. Please advise your pooch that what he/she heard about mule Polly sending them a premium (aka, mule apple, grass pie, manure) is purely rumor.
