This Friday, he's releasing a film about an adventure he took last winter, "True North Legends Of Dogs And Men". It was filmed during the throes of the Covid pandemic, when most people were staying to themselves, inside. Grant went instead, out into nature, as he tends to do, and the results are nothing short of epic.

He shares some of his story on how this film came to be, but first, check out this trailer, and see what we're talking about.

As Grant explains, it all started with a phone call, and then he was off to meet a complete stranger...

One of the things Grant found really captivating about these dogs, is that they all shared one common lineage, that of a very special and legendary sled dog, Togo.

"The dogs are all Descendants of Togo which is epic!"

According to the American Kennel Club, Togo was one of the hero dogs that saved the Alaskan village of Nome from succumbing to Diptheria, by making a grueling 674-mile trek to collect the medicine that ultimately saved everyone.

"Those trains are the Allagash ghost trains. Massive full-size steam trains in the middle of the Maine woods. Hard to get to normally most people take the trek by canoe in the summer going down the Allagash river other snowmobiles not eh winter We had the chance to visit this spot by dog sled! I have a little video about the trains too. I believe that was day 3 in the 7-day trek as well."
