Doing things properly in the wilderness can prevent accident and injury. Proper instruction before your canoe trips is a responsibility we take seriously. These basics are part of what our Outfitting Staff will cover with you when you arrive to begin your Boundary Waters Trip, but we know that some of you would like to get a head start on things from home. Watch and enjoy. Any questions, call or email us. Stuff that works (when done properly) brought to you by Your Friends in the Great Northwoods.
Thanks to Zane who worked on this video as part of his internship program and thanks to Adam as well.

I'm the Marketing Director, Catalog Director and Webmaster at Piragis Northwoods Company and the Boundary Waters Catalog here in Ely, Minnesota on the edge of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. We specialize in lightweight canoes and camping gear and have been serving our community and the worldwide community of paddlers since 1979. We know our stuff because we get out there and paddle. We are passionate about canoeing and wilderness.
