Trailer: Magnetawan River Whitewater Adventure


Here’s the first look at my trip down the Magnetawan River which I finished last week. It was an awesome trip! Keep an eye out for the full film which goes live Friday.

I started out with Brad Jennings of Explore The Backcountry and Alex Trayner of Northern Scvanger (and of course, my dog Buck) to paddle the upper river starting from my house, and then midway through the adventure, my brother Ted paddled out and found me on a large lake and the two of us continued down river all the way to Byng Inlet on Georgian Bay. We caught fish, ran a lot of rapids and dealt with the challenges of high water and lots of bugs.
