Slide Show – Low Tech, Low Stress Wilderness Canoeing

Chesterville Center Union Meeting House 3 Borough RoadChesterville,

Adventurers Paul and Cynthia Stancioff present an engaging display of photos and dialogue recounting their recent voyage in the Quetico Provincial Park of Western Ontario.  The presentation will reveal tips and techniques for provisioning a 10-12 day wilderness canoe trip including a display of their gear which they have refined during a number of trips to the region over a period of four decades.  Now in their sixties, the Stancioffs maintain that travelling to Quetico is well worth the effort due to the quality and scale of the contiguous wilderness found there.
