My buddy Joe started paddling from his home in Banff, AB to Montreal about a month ago. He's been writing an entertaining blog found at: https://www.newbreed.live/the-new-breed/

Joe is a mountain guide who's lived in Banff for about 30 years and has 4 kids ranging in age from 5 to 23. His wife Lisa is also a mountain guide, working for Parks Visitor Safety in Banff National Park.

This is a trip he's talked about for about the last 10 years and finally he's doing it. His heritage is Metis with fur trading history. He's always had a different way of looking at life and this blog sure shows that. If you look beyond his chronic struggles with grammar and spelling you'll find an intelligent and unique mind.

I hope some of you enjoy following his adventures. His last entry is from the Qu'Appelle River.

Tom
