Long Time Goal

I realized a long-time goal with an 8-day trip down the Mackenzie River in July 2005. With my 15-year-old son, Matthew, we did the stretch from Fort Providence to Fort Simpson. As we were coming from Europe, I wanted complete outfitting - everything except sleeping bags and tent.

Doug Swallow not only provided this, but was our guide and companion as well. It was a wonderful trip, and I never ate so well in the woods. Try cariboo tenderloin for our final evening meal.
