60th Birthday, 150 mile trek across Canada: 250 miles Northeast of Yellowknife

Dear Innova,

I am planning to celebrate the new millennium, and my 60th birthday, by making a 3-4 week solo trek 150 miles along the eskers 250 miles northeast of Yellowknife, NW Territories, Canada. This trackless area is characterized by ponds, lakes, streams and elevated eskers (gravel bars left by sub-glacial rivers). I will travel early this summer on foot, pulling a small, collapsible cart. When water crossings are required, I will paddle my gear and self in an inflatable kayak.

Innova will clearly be acknowledged in any publications or presentations that result from this trek.
