Bonaventure River Canoe Expedition

Immediately following our spring Wilderness Bushcraft Semester, our team of instructors is headed northeast to the Quebec’s Gaspe Peninsula for a whitewater trip on the Bonaventure River. (Photo above is from Kicking Horse Pass on the Bonaventure, taken on a previous trip.) We’ll be joined by several notable Canadian and American instructors. We’re all excited about the trip, and the possibility of forming a loose instructors network.

We’ll be paddling by day and discussing all sorts of pertinent issues by the fire at night. We’ve been toying with the idea of having a series of trips specifically for working guides and instructors where we can get out in the field and enjoy a river, talk about the work and enjoy each others company. I personally like the idea of this sort of instructor gathering on the trail because it will eliminate a lot of the standing around that comes with car camping at a rendezvous. As the guys and I were discussing last night, it will be fun to do the things we do rather than be at a campground talking about the things we do.

We’re all looking forward to it: a fun and experienced group and an epic river.

Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
