BACKCOUNTRY CANOE COOKERY: PART 1

WITH JIM BUCKINGHAM + DOUG MCKOWN

Sunday, July 18th @ 7pm MDT

Just because you’ve flown into the wilderness of the backcountry doesn’t mean you shouldn’t eat like a royalty! CanoeingLive presents a two-part culinary series into Canoe Cookery and Canoe Camping Recipes.

Part 1: Join Jim Buckingham and Doug McKown for an introduction to backcountry canoe cookery - not so much what you cook, but how you cook it. They will introduce you to the tools of the trade, campfire cooking techniques, and the lost art of backcountry baking!

CANOE TRIPPING IN NORTHERN SASKATCHEWAN

For more than 40 years, Jim Buckingham has been exploring the endless waterways of Northern Saskatchewan. In this panel discussion Jim and "Bucky" will introduce you to canoe tripping in the Canadian Shield, one of the most extensive wilderness areas in the world. From trip planning and logistics, to camping and paddling the various tributaries of the Churchill, we are thrilled to have Bucky join us on CanoeingLive.

DOUG MCKOWN

SAFETY WHILE CANOEING

Recorded: Sunday, May 2nd @ 7pm MDT

Doug McKown is a Legendary Canoeist residing in Banff, Alberta. Doug has had canoeing in his veins all of his life. He has resided in the Bow Valley for almost 50 year, a base from which he has paddled most major rivers in Canada. He has taught canoeing to thousands of individuals and groups and along with Jim Buckingham he has been an integral part of the Banff River Canoe Courses since the 1970s.


He is the author of two books on river safety and anyone who has paddled with Doug has probably been rescued by him as well! Doug is a major influence on Jim’s canoeing career and we are pleased to invite him to present on CanoeingLive.
