The Texas Water Safari has earned its reputation as the world’s toughest canoe race after 50 years of participants battling their way through its rigors. The race is 260 miles long and its participants have 100 hours to accomplish the journey. They start in San Marcos and will encounter rapids, portages, snakes, alligators and extreme exhaustion on their way to the finish in Seadrift.
Jeff McAdams, a big and brash Texan who is known to “smoke a bit, drink a bit and is told he might be overweight” has decided to take on the safari because a couple of friends told him he couldn’t do it. He’s got about 70 days to prepare and hasn’t been on the water since he was a boy scout. Will grit, determination and bravado be enough to get him to Seadrift?
‘Seadrift vs the Big Guy” is a battle of nature vs. man that offers a look into this famous race, introduces viewers to the men and women who take it on and of course, follows the Big Guy on what just may be the dumbest dare he’ll ever make good on.
