Worth the watch!

With all the renewed interest in all types of paddling it is even more important that paddlers do not take the gift of paddling lightly.
Hopefully more will be inspired to be involved.
One person can make a difference.
A lot of us can do so much more!

I thought I should maybe I should post in the Enviro or media thread but too few visit them.
We need to remember that there are those who came before that put tremendous effort for future paddlers, some known, many who are not.
And we need those in the present to paddle up to that level.

jedi jeffi: Thanks for this post!

As a past speaker of the Whipper series of annual presentations sponsored by the Canadian Canoe Museum, I fully endorse the need for protection of the shrinking canoe route areas of North America. I'm doing my best to encourage like-minded paddlers to get on board to help in this effort.

Keep up the good effort!

I miss him
For six years I got to sit at meals at the Maine Canoe Symposium and chat with him
He always promoted the canoe as a vessel of peace
