Kanadierkurse mit Harriet
My "career" with the ACA began with a course on white water for open
canoes in southern France. For many
trips to come in northern Scandinavia, I thought it would be useful to
have these skills. Since I was a
fly-fishing fanatic, on many a trip, I found myself on the banks of some
lone lake or river, not able to fish
the places I would like to fish, however, with a canoe this would be just
a matter of a few forward stokes.
So, I found myself to be in southern France, infected by the white water
virus. Now, I was infected by the combination
of the wilderness virus and by the white water virus; both are serious
ones. When I met my good friend Jörg Wagner
for the first time, the more general "if the word canoe fits the context
in the least sense I'm infected"-virus infected me.
In short: I live open canoe.
Since that time I stuck to the ACA and am now a white water Instructor
Trainer, which allows me to teach courses for open canoe Instructors
for the ACA.
My passion is wilderness tripping in the remote parts of the planet. With
me, 2 month trips are just fine. If there is white water to be encuntered,
the better the trip suits me. And, if there is the possibility
for fishing, you will hear no more questions from my side.
