''Without A Paddle'' is a 2004 comedy starring Creator/SethGreen, MatthewLillard and DaxShepherd. Tom (Shepherd), Jerry (Lillard), and Dan (Green) reminisce about their childhood dreams when their best friend passes away. While looking through their old tree house, they remember their obsession with D.B. Cooper's treasure. When they find a recent map that their friend left for them, they decide to honor his memory and go on the search for the treasure that they planned as children. Along the way, they encounter a pair of trigger-happy pot farmers, two lovely tree-dwelling hippies, and much more.

A straight-to-DVD sequel was released in 2009.
