Planning a Wilderness Trip In Canada and Alaska is destined to become the classic reference for anyone planning to hike, climb, ski, sled haul, canoe or kayak in remote areas of Canada or Alaska.
The author discusses the importance of choosing compatible companions, the use of guides and outfitters, how to reduce your impact on fragile areas and what to do in case of a wilderness emergency. He gives information on available services, resources available to recreational travellers, weather, regulations, suitable clothing, equipment and food, health concerns and animal hazards.
Morton's legendary keen eye for detail shines in this book, destined to become the bible for people whose idea of true outdoor adventure lies in wilderness hundreds of miles from paved roads, —Bruce Masterman.Calgary Herald.
About the Author:
Keith Morton is an outdoor-equipment writer and gear connoisseur. He has sampled hundreds of outdoor products during his fifteen years as a product tester and writer, most recently as equipment and new-products editor for Canada's Explore magazine, and during his stint as GORP's Gear Expert. Keith has undertaken extended expeditions by foot and paddle into the remotest regions of North America including ski trips across Canada's Ellesmere Island and canoeing/backpacking trips on the Nahanni River in the Northwest Territories have forged an abiding sense of how quality gear (and an ability to fix inevitable breakdowns) plays a big role in a trip's success. He lives in Calgary, Alberta, with his wife, Mary, a backyard full of kayaks and canoes, and a basement brimming with gear.
