Cliff Jacobson is one of North America's most respected outdoors writers, wilderness guides, national and foreign consultants, and is the most published canoeing/camping writer of this century.
If you’ve ever been to the Boundary Waters and competed for campsites on a popular lake, fussed with fire on a rainy day, slept in a wet tent or been bugged by bugs, bears or rodents, this fast-paced session is for you.
You’ll learn how to get away from the crowd, choose essential gear, and stay dry when it rains all day. We’ll check out equipment that works, and that which doesn’t. Included, is a brief description of the UTM (Universal Trans Mercator) system of navigation, and new Boundary Waters Canoe Area maps that utilize this system.
KOA will also host a gear swap/sale following the presentation!
