Ice and Fire | 7 Challenging Days Camping in the Canadian Wilderness


Ice and Fire | 7 Challenging Days Camping in the Canadian Wilderness

An amazing 7 rough days in Canada’s Algonquin Park with the winners of History’s Alone, Jim Baird and Ted Baird, costarring Buck the adventure dog. Freezing temperatures, high winds, cold rain and difficult fishing conditions challenge our ability to keep warm, start fires and to catch enough fish to keep us energized.
Bull moose, loons and other wildlife accompany us as we paddle across lakes, down a flooded river for days through raging waterfalls and whitewater and then back up a steadily rising river for another couple of days.
Paddling solo, we each pilot our own canoes – me in my new Swift 14′ carbon Prospector, Ted in a Swift Keewaydin and Jim in a Novacraft Prospector.
On day 4, we visit with Scott and Griffin of Drenalin Adventures and their friends at their amazing campsite on a beautiful Algonquin Park lake in the the heart of the park.
Despite the challenging fishing conditions, we manage to land in excess of 75 brook trout, the largest by Ted, measuring 21 inches and almost 4 pounds!
