Sorry man!! I was hoping everyone else would add themselves to the last! Happy to see another member sign up.

It is regretable to see that the Arctic trip has been cancelled due to insufficient numbers! I dont see why this course hasnt been booked out and people fighting for places! it is great value for money and a once in a lifetime experience. It is also giving plenty of notice so people can save for it! Cmon guys you know you want to!!

Also Ive been telling friends about it who have no real experience with bushcraft but enjoy the idea of the trip. Is it possible for them to come along?

Thanks

I've always fancied the idea of a trip like that but I've never got round to learning any canoeing skillls. How much would you need to know for a trip like this?

All of our expeditions start out with the basics and then build on the skills that make living and travelling in those environments comfortable.

Hope to see you there!

do it!! I know for instance myself and briantrubshaw are beginners also! it will be brilliant and a great price...these courses are usually like 3k! and it gives plenty of time to save :)

The Irish are more than welcome! ;) i'm going to Dublin next Thursday...decided yesterday that we fancied a trip somewhere so we're going to Dublin!

Just wondering, has one of these expensive courses/trips , ever actually taken place? Only it may be me being thick, but i can't find history of one!

This sounds very interesting! Question though:

I live in the region (NS, by the time this trip happens I may have moved to Newfoundland). If I were to do this I would probably drive there, and I would be able to bring my own canoe and canoe equipment. Since I wouldn't need to rent a canoe or equipment, and can transport my own, would the price be different?

Thanks

Anyone? It does appear, that if you ask an awkward question on here, you do not get an answer!

Ivan...

So because your question didn't get answered in less that 90 minutes you think that? How on earth is it an awkward question.... It's much more a case of we're busy people.

They're not expensive in comparison to other expeditions and for what you get, compared to camping for a week in the UK, yes they are.

We've had some arctic expeds and UK courses run through offering these to the Members of BCUK, I think we've offered the canoeing once before and it didn't happen. That's the nature of doing things this way, the opportunity is there and we're planning for a fair bit in the future with the timing of things.
