Summer is approaching!
Recently, I've been packing food and preparing equipment for the kayaking season.
In early June, I migrate Northward to Haida Gwaii. From my home in Sechelt, I drive for three days to reach Prince Rupert, where I take a ferry to Skidegate and another small ferry to Sandspit. My annual migration traverses some spectacular British Columbia countryside. Thankfully, for those on a tighter schedule, Air Canada's daily flights from Vancouver to Sandspit provide a convenient alternative.
I've had a productive winter in Sechelt. I completed a comprehensive purging and sorting of my office and storage facility, which were initially somewhat daunting tasks. The process of "cleaning my room" seemed to have the beneficial side-effect of "clearing my mind." I do find it more enjoyable completing tasks when my workspace is reasonably organized. Once my office was sorted, I proceeded to completely rebuild the Evolution Guide School website.
My winter projects also included editing a short kayak skills demonstration video, which is now available on YouTube. I intend to record more demos this summer and upload additional episodes next winter.
I look forward to my 37th consecutive summer on Haida Gwaii. I will soon be back in a kayak, enjoying the simple freedoms of wilderness exploration.
