Mike From TA Outdoors Joins For Expedition Canoe Training


Mike Pullen from TA Outdoors and I have made a number of video collaborations.

In our various conversations around the campfire while filming these videos, Mike had stated to me his desire to add the skills to expedition by canoe to his outdoor repertoire.

It made sense to me. Mike loves the woods. He’s a fisherman. He likes to travel.

So the Expedition Canoeing Skills Course with Ray Goodwin and me seemed perfectly suited to what Mike wanted to get under his belt.

Of his experiences on the course Mike said “This was a great learning experience. I’m already planning bigger trips!”.

For a lot more detail of what he gained from attending this course, Mike has made a video blog of his experiences on the course and gives some indication of what he aims to use these skills for… Mike’s video is embedded on this page.
