Outdoor adventurers have been a big part of who I am for most of my life. I first started backpacking and canoeing when I was eleven years old and became instantly enthralled by the joys of wilderness travel. My excursions have taken me to every corner of North America exploring remote wilderness areas on foot, canoe, raft, river kayak, and sea kayak. For the past thirty years I have enjoyed the many wonders of sea kayaking, focusing most of my travels in British Columbia and Southeast Alaska. The Inside Passage, that amazing water route from Washington to Alaska, has become my favorite wilderness area to explore and my new second home. My book, Point To Point: Exploring the Inside Passage by Kayak will take you along for the ride and give you some important first hand information that you can use when you head out on your next wilderness adventure. Whether you are an armchair adventurer or someone who loves to get sand in their shorts I believe you will find the book both interesting and helpful.
