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?
I'm in and deposit paid.
Get your name down folks and contact the office. This is a bargin and an amazing trip.
Woody and co really know their stuff, and I can back that up after going to Norway with them in 2007.
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?
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.
