When Vic Zast, Jim Thompson and Dan Johnson wanted to take the remains of their friend Mike Allen on a road trip to the Arctic to play three rounds of golf at midnight on the longest day of the year, Vic got the bright idea to turn their adventure into a movie
. We decided it was both wacky and worthwhile to drive so far to honor a departed friend, so Garrett Popcorn provided the guys with a few tins of Chicago Mix, a gift for the Mayor of Inuvik, and financial support for the film.
Follow the guys on the Our Longest Drive site, or send Vic a tweet. They’ll respond when they stop somewhere with internet coverage.
We’ll check in with them on along the journey and hope you do the same.
UPDATE: Here’s a link to the film trailer.
