BRADY ERICKSON (USA) is a Band-Aid. He was following Trabant Trek from afar in his native home of California, but after hearing that his best friend Lovie is descending into madness he decides to pop over to prevent the Trek from hemorrhaging. He hopes to prevent Lovie from going insane. When he arrives in Azerbaijan the trek is at its breaking point and on the verge of collapse. It takes Brady less than a day to realize “he’s walked into some sort of disaster”. His brief stay of six weeks provides the entire team with a newfound passion without which they may have never made it over the treacherous Pamir Mountains.
