  Pete Swiggum

Since being invited by his two best friends to take a canoe trip to Quetico in 1986, Pete now has over thirty canoe trips to Quetico on his resume, both base camping trips and trips that covered many miles. Pete has also taken several trips in the BWCA and will be able to share differences (and similarities) of each experience and offer advice and logistical information that will help any group looking to experience the wonder that is Quetico Provincial Park.

 Quetico Provincial Park: Your Next Adventure
Superior - main floor Fri 6:30pm-7:15pm 
Quetico - main floor Sun 1:30pm-2:15pm 
This will be a refreshed version of my presentation last year titled "Quetico Provincial Park: The Ultimate How-to". Many people who go to the BWCA are looking for the next challenge and Quetico is right "next door". The only problem is they don't know what's involved logistically in going there. In this session, I will share information about border crossings, RABC permits, entry points and everything that is needed to know to make trip plans to this wonderful canoe tripping destination.
