What’s it like to spend 394 days crossing the Great Plains – from Canada to Mexico – in a 21-square foot, solar powered, one mule wagon?
Hi. I’m film maker Bernie Harberts. The Lost Sea Expedition Public TV series is about my 14 month wagon voyage across America. The series has been selected to premier on Rocky Mountain PBS. It addresses the important issues of our time about water, automation and the depopulation of the Great Plains. There’s plenty of adventure, too, like exploring a vanished sea with a mule and how (not) to move a rattlesnake with a buggy whip. Here’s more about the series.
Mule Polly and I are currently in Colorado raising funds to complete the Lost Sea Expedition (alas, Public Television is not paying us to air it…) We’ll be here until early August. Keep an eye out for my funky yellow wagon. Flag me down. Bring your friends. Come on by to meet me!
