43 days rambling alone through the sub-arctic Labrador winter…
That is the ride me and Bear have just experienced!
We are not long removed and have cleaned up and recharged the batteries. Now I am hungry for more!
I’ll post plenty from the trip as time passes: of the fine invigorating adventure; vast-lonely beauty; pure northern air; big mesmerizing skies; and fresh meals from the land. And how can I forget the peaceful and cozy evenings in the tent? When the stove hummed, the warm light of the candle flickered, and outside our friend, Aurora Borealis, waltzed across the starry frozen heavens uninterrupted by not a civilized light.
What a joy it all was!!
The picture above is of us on Ossokmanuan Lake (90km long) in the interior wilds one squally day when the bitter wind burned the face like fire and tried to slither its way under my clothing like a snake….
Of course, life keeps moving when I’m in the woods. So I have to give a huge thanks to Heather, for holding the fort! She did a fantastic job promoting the new 6-Episode Winter series on Canada’s Bell Fibe TV1 (Channel 1)- “Through the Woods with Justin Barbour”
It’s doing excellent and I hope it has fired up ideas for your future winter journeys! If you haven’t watched it yet, there’s no time like the present ; )
Further details on the show, its YouTube premiere (https://www.youtube.com/justinbarbournlexplorer) and all the rest very soon!
Thanks for the continued support, views of the new series, comments, inbox messages/emails (all of which I will read!), and most importantly, sharing a passion with me for the great outdoors.
Take care & seize the day, folks!
