I love the outdoors. My all-time favorite activities are white-water canoeing and canoe-camping, but any kind of camping is good. I've been doing a lot of it too! By the way, my profile picture takes place in a canoe in the salty waters near Tofino, BC!

comment What's the name of the old cross country ski boots with three holes at the front?
Exactly what I was looking for! Is there additionnal terminology which could refer specifically to the lighter, low rising, "soft" kind? (as opposed to the heavy duty "hard-shelled" version)

comment What is the difference between Class III, Class IV, and Class V rapids?
+1 for consulting a local guide. A rapid can be Class 1 one day and Class 3 another day. Always inspect the rapid before going in.

comment How to tell the time at night
The moon is not synchronized with the sun. You would have to calculate its position and have an extensive reference chart to make any sense of it. The moon is not a reliable source of time.
