Inhaltsangabe: Personal account of a 37-day, 950 km canoe trip down the Thelon River, across the Barren Grounds of Northern Canada.
Über den Autor: Kathleen and Michael first hiked together in the mountains of southern British Columbia in 1977. Since taking up canoeing in 1987, they have devoted most of their free time to gaining paddling experience in southern British Columbia on a wide variety of rivers, including the Capilano, Cheakamus, Chilliwack, Coldwater; Cowichan, Nicola, Seymour, Squamish, Similkameen and Tulameen. Their first wilderness adventure in the Northwest Territories occurred in 1990, when they paddled three weeks and 565 km down the Nahanni River from the Moose Ponds to Blackstone Landing on the Liard River. After their Thelon River trip in 1993, Kathleen and Michael returned to the north in 1995 to spend 4 weeks travelling 650 km down the Coppermine River from the site of historic Fort Enterprise to the Inuit community of Kugluktuk (formerly Coppermine) on the Arctic Coast. For their most recent wilderness adventure in 1997, Kathleen and Michael selected the Seal River in Northern Manitoba, where they spent 3 weeks paddling 300 km from Shethanei Lake to the western shore of Hudson Bay. In her non-paddling life, Kathleen is responsible for Document Strategies in Information Technology Services at the University of British Columbia. Michael is also employed at UBC, as Associate Professor of Grassland Ecology in the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences. Kathleen and Michael are both certified by the Recreational Canoeing Association of British Columbia as flat-water canoeing instructors, and regularly present slide shows on wilderness canoeing to many groups throughout the Vancouver Area.
