Traditional Maine Guide Canoeing: Episode 38 of the Jack Mountain Bushcraft Podcast. On a blustery Saturday morning, Christopher and I discussed the role of the canoe in northern Maine. Along the way we covered the history and materials of canoes (birch bark, wood canvas, aluminum, fiberglass, plastic),why canoeing still matters, the JMB traditional skills approach, our trip destinations, and the two types of continuous growth and learning. We finish with a request for a review wherever you listen, and to contact us with ideas you’d like for us to cover in future episodes.
