On my 4th birthday, I received a canoe. I remember learning how to dump, sink and bail out the 15' lime green canoe before I ever saw a paddle. It wasn't until I was in my early teens, that I was allowed to venture off away from eyesight of the cottage deck. That's when I would get lost in epic adventures. As a young adult, I was introduced to the beauty and peace of the Algonquin and Killarney backcountry. I've always travelled as a tandem or group and enjoyed every minute. This season a paradigm shift has guided me towards planning my first solo trip. In searching for advice, mentorship and self education I came across this forum and liked what I was reading and so have stepped out of my introverted shell to extend an introduction. My name is Andrew and I like to paddle.
