Get used to it. It only gets better. At some points I had to pinch myself and say "is this dude for real?"

Chomping at the bit for the next one! I've got my canoe loaded on the truck for a day trip and was thinking about "Wimping" out since the sun looks like it's going to stay hidden and it's probably not getting out of the 30's today? Betcha BeaV wouldn't give today's weather a second thought?

What a trip so far. I love watching these vids. BeaV is a paddling machine! Can't wait to see the Chilkoot Pass.

These are great videos. I really enjoy the crisp, direct style of reporting by BeaV. In fact, I can easily see a book coming from this expedition. There is so much he could further describe and develop in a wilderness expedition book based on this experience. Food for thought.

I am thoroughly enjoying this and I have a ton of admiration for you...but, the "come along" song was cool the first time, still kind of cool the second time, now it's starting to get in the way of my enjoyment...lol. Will the song be playing through all 14 segments?

Can't wait for Part 5 - I followed the tracking last year, but this is even better!

BeaV,

Curious to know what you had on/in your PFD. I notice items in both the front and back.

A BeaV cave makes any man cave wimpy!

These videos are simply incredible! Each video basically adds a day to my solo trip next year. Thanks for sharing!

Back- strobe light for nighttime rescue

Front- PLB, compass, knife, fire starting kit, and whistle

Later on when I got into more remote areas I ditched the strobe light and whistle (you've probably heard the one "if a tree falls in the forest and there's no one nearby, does it make a sound?" or similarly "if a BeaV falls into the ocean who will hear or see it?")

As long as I can make fire, I'm good. Knowing which way to walk or swim is good too.

BeaV, you didn't tell us you were part of a flotilla when you pulled into Skagway! Which canoe is yours? :)

BeaV, I'm inspired. Wow, thanks for being faithful to your dreams. We are all better for it.

Ya, that second boat had engine problems, so they threw me a rope and I pulled them into port. :)

Wow. I'm too old and sedate now to do it but I really want to do part of this route. Very inspiring trip and video, thanks to all involved in bringing it to fruition and I am in awe of you BeaV.

I can't imagine thinking of paddling in 5-8 foot rollers. Love the BeaV cave.

Each segment of your story gives me opportunity to pause and reflect upon some of the challenges you faced and decisions made. Love the humor, perseverance and faith. Had to you tube Vicci too. Great music for the adventure, I think I know what will be in my head next summer in the BWCA.. Kudos to all who made this possible.
