Big News! Announcement and Update.



Just taking off to fly to Whitehorse, Yukon where I’ll then drive for six hours to Mayo. From Mayo, I’ll be chartering a floatplane to drop me off deep in the remote Selwyn Mountains to paddle the Hess River. The Hess is known to be the most challenging canoeable river in the territory. I’m nervous and excited, sad that I’m leaving my family but happy that I’ve managed to carve out a career where I can do trips like this as my job. Stay tuned for more videos from this trip and wish me luck!

Also, be sure to check out photos and other content from this trip on my Facebook and Instagram accounts and please subscribe to my YouTube channel if you haven’t already.
