Oil and Water Project


USA 2007 35min (short)

This film tells the story of two world-class kayakers and good friends who embark on the longest-ever petroleum-free road trip. 

They cover over 21,000 miles from Alaska to Argentina in a retro-fitted Japanese fire truck named Baby.

After converting the trucks regular diesel engine to run on any kind of natural oil, Seth Warren and Tyler Bradt journeyed for over a year through 16 countries.  It was an endless summer adventure of paddling, driving, exploring and promoting alternative fuel sources.

By collaborating with schools, local governments, farmers, agricultural research centres and media, they held demonstrations, workshops and community gatherings to spread the word about sustainable energy, meeting many inspiring people and enjoying some of the best whitewater paddling along the way.
