For many in the OCA, "canoeing" is defined by the use of the craft in a trip or journey, generally in a craft which only really makes sense when laden with enough kit to be fully self-sufficient for at least a long weekend - meaning it's perhaps more related to backpacking than to so-called "paddlesport".

With care, we can get into tripping and journeying from our very first time on the water.  Here, Morall River Films provide an introduction from across the pond.  It's arguably better than any introduction ever offered in the UK - enjoy :)

Morall River Films - Introduction to Canoe Camping

Two years ago, Mark and Merri Morall of Morall River Films built up expectations of a DVD they had been working on by releasing "More than a River": a lush opening sequence, capturing the spirit of tripping and journeying in song as well as in great footage, and heightening anticipation by ending with Sigurd Olsen's famous line about the way of the canoe being "the way of the wilderness and of a freedom almost forgotten"...
