Poling The Big Machias | Jack Mountain Bushcraft Journal 23

A canoeing video of poling up and snubbing down the Big Machias River during the June, 2011 Riverman Course. The camera gets a little shakey in the middle, but even with this is shows that with a pole and some experience a person can travel upstream through a rip faster than they can walk on shore.

    Looks like you got a bit wet before coming back down :D I’m always a little sad that poling isn’t a skill I was able to pick up before moving Away. Thanks for the video!

  • Hey Tim Awesome Skills my friend!
    Thanks again for the week of poling thanks for sharing and keeping this art ALIVE!

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.
