Technical Guide: 

An interactive map (you can switch between campsites, days, and the canoe path, and change the base map) is at http://bit.ly/DubawntKazan.

Since the Dubawnt and Kazan Rivers have each been canoed many times in the last 55 years, I'm confining this description to our trip up the Kamilukuak River from Dubawnt to Kamilukuak. I've attached the relevant portion of my trip journal covering that part of the trip. If anyone knows of any others who went up the Kamilukuak in this stretch, please let me know.
