Late winter is a weird time of year for someone who identifies as an outfitter, conservationist or adventurer. We leave the well travelled paths that takes us to our happy places, the lakes, rivers, mountains and forests. We find solace in the yoga mat or a recommended ale, we trade in a hug from loved ones for the handshake of the cabbie. It is different. But this difference is essential and drives us to come out of our bubbles of nature, gear, photographs and maps. It drives us to connect.
This is why we do what we do. To share what we love. To remind people where our country came from and that if we are truly to realize our potential as a nation our wilderness will have to continue to shape who we are.
So, while we stretch stiffening knees after long flights, and search with sleepy eyes for a decent cup of coffee you can be sure we look forward to meeting you.
Toronto, thank you for having us. Your are lovely, your beer delicious and energy infectious.
Vancouver and Calgary, we look forward to seeing you in the coming weeks.
