LETTER OF THE MONTH


“To the staff, thank you so much for your magazines! One of my favorite things to do to de-stress from a hectic life of three kids under six and a dangerous career is to sit back with the most recent issue. Instant relaxation! Thank you for all you do to make these possible.”—Hamish Drummond


STRANGEST ANIMALS WE’VE FOUND IN CANOES (ON THE INTERNET)


KOALA A curious koala surprised a group of canoeists in Australia by swimming across a river to hop a ride in their boat.


DEER Doreen Ball from Pender Island, British Columbia, had been trying to grow a garden in an old canoe, but it became a deer bed instead.


RACCOONS There is a far bigger market for taxidermy featuring raccoons paddling canoes than we ever expected. Sometimes the coons are dressed like little voyageurs.


GOATS


John Chohesy offers canoe building workshops. He shows off this photo whenever someone asks him if his boats are stable. Learn more: Birchcanoes.com.


CATS After being rescued from a trash bin, feline brothers Bolt (pictured) and Keel have made a name for themselves online by camping, hiking, canoeing and sailing.
