We sometimes get involved in a really neat project, and this is one of them. Having 6 local youth from the Great Slave Lake area reconnect with nature in our folding canoes was a real thrill. Here is the first contact I received - and at the bottom is a link to the blog from the trip. I think you will like it!

Hi Pakboat- 

I live and work in Yellowknife for the The Nature Conservancy, the largest environmental conservation organization in the world. We have recently started working with small communities in the Northwest Territories and have some funding to try and reconnect aboriginal youth to nature. The project has evolved into taking 6 youth from Lutsel K’e, in the East Arm of Great Slave Lake, on a 2 week canoe trip down the Upper Thelon River this July.
I have been running logistics with planes and boats and it turns out that we may need one or two Pakboats to accompany us on the trip..........

After much research and map gazing we decided to paddle 850 km across Poland by canoe during the summer of 2010.

PakCanoe 160 Review, Alan Kesselheim Print E-mail
Thursday, 19 August 2010 10:33
160-reviewI admit I was skeptical about this folding canoe's durability, especially on longer trips where you shouldn't need to baby your boat. I was also skeptical about performance. Finally, I doubted my ability to deal with the "easy" assembly. But you can't argue with the advantage

Quoich and Lunan Rivers, Nunavut, Canada Print E-mail

July 11-24, 2009: To the best of our knowledge we were the first canoe trip on the Lunan Branch of the Quoich. Wemap could find no pre information on the river and as such were running with topo maps only, no river notes.

The Where’s Manchester Expedition, Bolivia Print E-mail
Sunday, 02 May 2010 17:17

Riding motorbikes around South America may seem like a strange beginning to a story of canoeing down a remote river in the Bolivian Amazon but that’s how it all started nevertheless. In 2004 I was looking for a route around the north side of Lake Titicaca into Bolivia with my wife, Liz. We had a torn air map that some other bikers had given us a few months before but it was hard to make sense of its faded contours and creased lines. While I poured over it Liz’s eyes strayed to other points of interest further afield. “Hay, look at this” she stabbed the map with a gloved finger “there’s a place called Manchester here!”

If you think canoe adventures can only be had in the wilderness, this story will set you straight. Or may be you consider New York just another kind of wilderness. In any case, I think you will enjoy this tale! The PakCanoe used in the story is well traveled. A couple of years ago, the owner sent me a picture from a river trip in Sweden, and we recently shipped a spare part to Africa. And then there is New York:

This one featured the South Seal River and Hudson Bay, paddling 400 miles of terrific northern wilderness full of rapids, wildlife, and fantastic campsites.

Your PakCanoe is an amazing craft. I love it, truly. On the Tat it performed beyond any of my expectations. It takes big waves better than anything I've paddled and it is fast, so making moves is easy - technical rapids, no problem at all.
