I. Trip Report                                                                                                     

1.  Chagres River in Expedition Kayaks - August 5, 2008

"I wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we all had kayaking yesterday!  Everyone in our group loved it - and we had a wide range of ages and abilities (and languages!).  The guides were great, very friendly and knowledgable, and we all felt very comfortable with them.  The river was beautiful, and we saw lots of wildlife (thanks Nelson!).  We could not have asked for a better day!
Thank you for all your help getting it arranged, we would not have wanted to miss this!
Omar and Tony are looking forward to rafting with you all on Friday : )"

5.  Do you wish to be in Discovery Channel ?

We receive the following email that I am not sure if it is a funny or not.  If interested do you own research about this opportunity. 

Discovery Channel, the network that brought you The Alaska Experiment, is currently casting its next Alaskan adventure. If you think you have what it takes to live and thrive in one of natures most brutal environments, then we want to hear from you TODAY!

Our newest series raises the bar for our adventurers by sending them on an epic JOURNEY through the wild.

THE CHALLENGE -- if you dare to accept it -- is to join a band of fellow explorers and journey through some of the harshest climates and roughest terrains in the world: the Alaskan wilderness. Both an epic quest and the ultimate test of courage, this amazing journey will test its participants in ways they never thought possible and, in the process, allow them to experience the raw beauty of nature and see the world like they never have before.

Sound exhilarating? It will be! If you are ready to leave the monotony of your day-to-day life behind and push yourself to the limits, you can finally earn the right to say that you truly LIVED.

Email Becky at beckyc@pilgrimfilms.tv and include a recent photo along with your name, phone number, city/state, and a short explanation of why you feel you are up to the challenge. You can also call 818-752-5559 for more information.

Join us. We dare you
