So if you listen to our show you will know that Derek subscribes to and receives the “Live The Adventure Club Quarterly Gear Box” through Explore Magazine. Well, the Spring Box showed up on his door step and he wanted to shoot a video of him opening it to see what was inside. This means we need to start a YouTube page so we have somewhere to post the video.

Guess what? That is exactly what we did!!

Derek brought the Box to the studio and sat down so he could open it up and see what surprises were waiting inside.  I manned the camera and sound gear while he had all the fun of ripping through the box.  Then I put the video together, set up a YouTube account for Paddling Adventures Radio and uploaded the video.

Well, it certainly has been a busy start to the year so far.  With the Toronto Outdoor Adventure Show, The Quiet Water Symposium (Michigan), and the Ottawa Outdoor & Adventure Travel Show already under our belts, it was time to head to Kitchener-Waterloo for the KW Canoe Symposium.

I have been to five of the six Symposiums and even had the opportunity to give a presentation on Woodland Caribou Provincial Park one year.  This year I was back as a sponsor with Paddling Adventures Radio. Attendee, Presenter, Sponsor. I must like the event. 🙂

Organized by David Bain, the KW Canoe Symposium is a one day event that showcases people that incorporate canoeing into their lives in some fashion. Whether it is as a canoe tripper such as myself or a musician that writes songs of the canoe and paddling, the presenters David lines up each year is sure to please the audience. This year was no exception.
