Note from Gord

May 17, 2017 - Sechelt, BC

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.
