lastdayIt’s been said that your life flashes before your eyes before you die. Having “arrived” to our destination yesterday to be raced back to Telegraph Creek by jet boat ride today, I can’t help but giggle. We are about to see all of what we paddled over the course of two weeks in six hours…

Up at 5 a.m., we make it to the dock to meet the man who will be boating us back to Canada. His name is Tom. Now living in Wrangell, he has spent many years of his life as an outdoor adventure guide to at-risk youth. Having studied wilderness adventure, he’s done excursions up to 50 days at a time. His tall, strong structure, long hair and reddish beard make him appear a worthy character. A person of trust.

“There’s no such thing as bad weather around here,” he says to the group, “Just bad equipment or bad attitudes.”

Getting us back to Telegraph safely, we celebrate by eating one last meal using the camping stove. We eat more of the fish we purchased from Alaska last night. We load up the last of our things, knowing we are in for another long haul before arriving back in Revelstoke, BC.

I take a moment to pause at the river before getting back into the truck.
While I know the main part of the journey is now complete, it’s as though the adventure with Flexpeditions has only just begun.

It’s a story of a story of a story…

Why not let this one start with you?


Taking a Break

Thank you for your kindness, love & support over the years, but Flexpeditions will be closing for a break… to actually get back to more family time and nature.

We have absolutely loved all of the people who came on adventures with us over the last decade and all of the support from the Flexpeditions fans. And to those who doubted us – we made big things happen – we spent time connecting people in the outdoors to themselves, each other and their surroundings through adventure & outdoor education.

We offered programs and gave awesome adventure jobs to Revy folk for 10 years- a decade! We taught lots of kids how to climb, put people out in the water, and equipped the new generation with great foundational survival skills… in the forest or in life!
