Wondered if anyone was watching this docuseries on youtube? Very well done, compelling, solo w/dog in its finest. Part 4 was posted the other day...about a third, perhaps, of the journey completed. Check it out.

I've been watching it, along with Northern Scavenger's Boreal to Barrenlands expedition on YouTube. Enjoying both.

I’ve been watching it - was waiting for part 4 to show up. He spends a lot of time lining his canoe!

Here's the other one for those who are interested.

i've canoed some of this route. haven't watched all the videos yet but my impressions are that soloing in this area is reckless. yes i know he's canadian and this is what they do, labrador and ungava are virtually uninhabited, alaska is crowded by comparison, rescue may not be available. the land and rivers are extremely rugged, crazy scary rapids, i've paddled a few rivers in alaska, they don't compare. i'll be watching these tonight.

Yes, been watching. Was hoping to see him at Caonecopia, but...you know.

I'm a big fan of his. Really wanted to see him at Canoecopia, maybe next year.
What do you guys think of his inflatable boat? not to replace the canoe for the main part of the trip but as a possible way to hike in to remote lakes with just the raft, rod and lunch.

Here's a link to the other one for those who are interested. Not a solo, but a major expedition. Very tough. They posted episode 11 today, which is about 4 weeks into it.

Wow! Just finished the first episode. That's mesmerizing. Thanks for sharing.

Yeah I watched the Labrador crossing last week and now I'm on his earlier crossing of Newfoundland. He puts a huge effort into filming with multiple cameras going at the same time including a "doggy cam". He's very entertaining too and tough as nails. That Labrador trip rivals what BeaV did in Alaska just not as life threatening.

If anyone could duplicate BeaV's trip I think Justin would have a shot. I'm specifically thinking of the Bering sea section that BeaV amazingly survived.

I tumled onto this channel by accident.
I watched the whole series and am going through some of the other adventures.
I enjoy his videos.

Yeah, I have communicated with these guys.
They do a great job.

Yeah, they've done some Wabakimi stuff I know.

I enjoyed the videos on both channels. Those were both tough trips.
