I am still working at Augustana Faculty (now part of the University of Alberta) in Camrose teaching outdoor education and leadership. Our kids, Jasper and Kaisa, are now 9 and 6 and we are going on longer and longer bikes rides, ski trips, and hiking trips and on a recent canoe trip Jasper and Kaisa demanded that they paddle a canoe together; it was a surprising and proud moment as Jasper sterned the canoe in a straighter line than either Krystal or I have ever seen Neil pull off. In June I did a canoe trip with my class from the north end of Artillery Lake over Pike’s Portage and along the north shore of Great Slave Lake. There was more ice than water; we pulled our canoes over ice for 95 kms–it was a great adventure.
