The Happy Camper’s Wilderness Quest

Last February, the TwoCanoe gang went to the Outdoor Adventure Show in Toronto to check out the latest in equipment, travel and outdoor adventures. One of the added benefits of this years show was a screening of outdoor celebrity Kevin Callan’s film, The Happy Camper’s Wilderness Quest.

Here is the synopsis of the film, per The Happy Camper Website…

Does wilderness still exist?

That is the question that sparked a paddling journey in search of wilderness. Set in Quetico Provincial Park, canoe author Kevin Callan paddles in search of wilderness and an understanding of its value.  Packed with humorous scenes highlighting common canoe-tripping misadventures, the film explores one of Canada’s largest wilderness parks viewing its changing environments, wildlife, remoteness and scenic splendours.

The result, Callan uncovers strong evidence to suggest that not only does wilderness still exist, but perhaps it means more to us now than ever.

If you have watched any of The Happy Camper’s YouTube videos, you will know that while he does take his passion seriously, he is a jokester at heart. The movie was delivered in Kevin’s good-humored style and made for a very entertaining view of his search for wilderness.

After the screening, Kevin took some time to meet with his fans, and the TwoCanoe gang had the chance to pick his brain about some of his favorite campsites. He was as welcoming to meet in person as he is to watch in his videos. (André even received a signature on one of his Ontario park maps, seen here).

One thought on “The Happy Camper’s Wilderness Quest

  1. Kevin was kind enough to autograph a map of mine, and point out a secret location of his where he likes to fish in the area….don’t worry Kevin, your secret is safe with me! Although I do own a few of his books, inlcuding Top 50 Canoe Routes in Ontario, I chose to ask him to sign a map that includes some of my own personal favorite locations to canoe and camp. It’s now an item with great personal value to me with an autograph of one my favorite outdoor icons.
