The Future - This is the Sea 4?
Thursday, February 22, 2007

I know "This is the Sea 3" isn't quite out yet, but plans are already underway to get some footage for dare I say it, 'This is the Sea 4' !? ( The title is to be confirmed, but there WILL be another Cackle TV seakayaking DVD in the next 12 - 24 months!)

In fact, Alun & I fly to San Diego next week to do some filming with some very good kayak fishing guys, including Jim Sammons.
I'm excited about that as I know very little about 'proper' kayak fishing and I've wanted to film it for ages. (I have caught the odd fish with my hand line trailed behind my kayak but I think it's more luck that judgement!) If you live near San Diego then I'm giving a presentation ( with Jim Sammons & Jock Bradey) on Saturday 3rd March and showing a sneak preview chapter from 'This is the Sea 3'. If that's not enough to whet your appetite then there's wine & Cheese aswell. Contact Aqua Adventures if you're interested.

We then drive to Baja with Jen Kleck from Aqua Adventures, and some of the Johnson Outdoor pro paddlers to camp & do some rock hopping & rough water paddling. I'm told that Jock Bradley will be putting down his camera and taking up his wooden spoon to produce some fine foods!

Next is Canoecopia & the launch of "This is the Sea 3". Lendal are hiring a bar and a band on 10th March in Madison and we're showing the world premiere of 'This is the Sea 3'. DVDs will be on sale at Canoecopia from Friday 9th March, and at other shops around the world from Saturday 10th March. I'll be around all weekend to sign copies ( and giving some presentations).

In late March, Alun and I head to Australia for the New South Wales Canoe Club's annual "Rock N Roll" event. After that we plan to paddle in the Nadge Wildernes Area of NSW with Laurie Geoghegan and others, followed by an attempted crossing of the Bass Strait to Tasmania. We'll cross to the East side of Tassie via a chain of islands. The total distance is about 370km and the longest hop is 67km, which I think will be my longest open crossing so far.

We'll be home in May & June, then in July we fly back to the West coast of the States. This time we are delighted to be attempting to circumnavigate Haida Gwaii ( The Queen Charlotte Islands ) with our good friends and very talented paddlers Shawna Franklin & Leon Sommes. We hope to paddle back to mainland Canada afterwards making the total journey around this remote, wild and beaufiul island chain around 1000km. I'll write more about all of these trips as they approach and I hope to have regular blog updates of all of them as they progress. And I'll have my cameras with me, of course!

(The photo is obviously nothing to do with any of this! It's Alun Biking in Scotland last weekend as we enjoyed 3 days of biking and hiking)

LOL... Such a busy life! Alun isn't getting overly tired biking I hope. It sounds like he'd best be saving his strength for the weeks and months ahead!
All the best!

Have a great time Justine! The Queen Charlottes are referred to as North America's Galapagos Islands. They're amazing!

You go girl!

Aaahh. This explains alot! When I was peering through the window of Body Boat Blade this last weekend (Shawna & Leon were in Florida) I spied a chart of Haida Gwaii on the table! This is tops of my life list of adventures. I can't wait to see the video!

Grief! How DO you people get to spend so much time biking, hiking and paddling?

Oh's your JOB! Someone's got to do it!

Looking forward to having all four TITS on my shelf.
