Running Chase Rapids On The Wilderness Canoe Expedition Semester | JMB Vlog 166

Big thanks to JC, camera-person extrordinaire! Join us as we paddle and pole down Chase Rapids on the Allagash Wilderness Waterway in Maine. This video shows the first 2 miles, which is the challenging section and toughest on the 99-mile waterway. Some good footage of poling and paddling in fast water. This is from the 2022 course, not the one we just finished in 2023. There’s a bit of saucy language in this video, so be aware that it might not be suitable for kids.

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.
