A Newfoundland sea kayak journey

Posted by Ken Campbell February 18, 2011 2 Comments 790 views


On February 18, which, as it happens, is tonight, I’ll be doing a slide show at the Mountaineers Hall in Tacoma. I’ll be showing images and telling tall tales from the kayaking trip I took around the island of Newfoundland back in 2000. It was an amazing adventure, three full months of paddling pleasure and pain. It ended up being the trip of a lifetime and the stories I collected there are still a source of pride, and humor.

It’s a free show, no charge. The Tacoma Mountaineers do this every month as part of their “Open House.” You don’t have to be a member to come to the show, and you can contact the Mountaineers Sea Kayaking Committee through their web site for more information. (Or email me, whatever.)

It’s going to be a real slide show with real slides, celluloid pictures instead of digital images, real colors instead of millions of ones and zeros. I don’t know that this makes much of a big deal either way… for some reason it just seems cooler to me right now. (Ask me how I feel when the first vibrates off the table and the second one won’t advance. I may not be as cool then.)

Anyway, the show is scheduled for tonight. I look forward to seeing you there.

It’s a good story, you won’t be disappointed.
