I would recommend the book: Narrative Of The Arctic Land Expedition To The North Of The Great Fish River In The Years 1833, 1834, And 1835 by Captain Back, R.N.

from my home. I will try to attend. After some reading I'm beginning to think this river may not be the best choice at this stage of my life. Have to think on it.
heh heh you cannot just drop in|

Attendance is limited.. (seems the fire marshal limits occupancy) I recommend registering and attending even if you don't do that river now.
Posted by: rpg51 on Feb-07-12 8:05 PM (EST)
Yes I should. I think I would enjoy the folks at this gathering. Lot of experience up north for sure.
