Patagonia Premieres Film about the Original Dirtbag Road Trip

These guys did the whole dirtbag vanlife thing before it was cool.

I can't wait to see this film. The film toured around North America this month (still a few shows left, see below) and will make its digital release today!

They called themselves Fun Hogs. In 1968, five friends took a road trip to climb Cerro Fitz Roy, and documented the whole thing on a 16mm Bolex. Along the way they surfed undiscovered breaks, skied on sand and snow, spent 31-days in a snow cave and made a first ascent on the mountain. Fifty years later this film, which defined a lifestyle and became an underground classic, is in its first wide release.
