HEADLINES

  • Kayaking in Alaska's 'bear utopia' - News Observer (AK) - September 13: The area around Pack Creek, a bear-viewing area on Admiralty Island — not to mention Pack Creek itself — offers some amazing sights not too far from Juneau... Pack Creek, which is jointly managed by the U.S. Forest Service and the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, is one of Admiralty Island's biggest draws. Every day during the summer season, which runs from June 1 to Sept. 10, an average of 12 guided permits and 12 non-guided permits are available to tourists, Southeast Alaska residents, or whoever would like to see some bears. We'd purchased non-guided permits for $50 each.

  • ICF Canoe Slalom World Championships Begin - McHenry, MD - September 13: The U.S. is set to host the ICF Canoe Slalom World Championships September 17-21, 2014. McHenry, Maryland will be welcoming Olympic-Level Athletes from over 45 Countries competing for the Gold! The Adventure Sports Center International is the prestigious venue for the event and is the Only Mountaintop re-circulating whitewater course in the World. This is the 25 year anniversary of the 1989 World Championship held in Garrett County Maryland and only the second time in History this prestigious event has graced the United States.

  • Teen completes solo Mississippi River journey - Joplin Globe (MO) - September 10: After paddling 2,365 miles down the Mississippi River, James Welborn has ended his solo canoe journey. A recent graduate of Webb City High School (MO), the 19-year-old Welborn launched his canoe May 25 into the headwaters of the Mississippi River at Lake Itasca, Minnesota. On Tuesday, he paddled the final section of the river and reached the Gulf of Mexico, where his family was standing on the shore waiting for him.
