In this Water + Wheels issue, we visit a remote Great Lakes island chain but don’t name it, explore the life-directing properties of an old canoe, revisit the edge of the world and shoot the legendary rapids of the Spanish River.
Almost crumbling under the weight of an 80-pound pack with burning cramps firing through my legs, I feel serious doubt seep into my tired, overheated brain and I ask myself for the 300th time in the past two days… “What have we gotten ourselves into?”
In late 2019, with Myanmar's borders open and a large archipelago of limestone islands that could be the long-hidden cousin of Thailand’s Railay Beach rock climbing scene, three Mountain Lifers cleared their calendars, rolled up their inflatable SUPS, found what might be the only place in the country to rent enduro dirtbikes.
tival is back with an evening of adventure films celebrating the outdoors. The speakers are paddle guide/adventurer/ photographer Scott Parent and his daughter Acadia who will present about their SUP mission on the Great Lakes and the resulting film Three Waters.
