T’ai Chi for Canoeing September 11, 2007
Just when I thought there was nothing more relaxing than an afternoon on the river I come across this.
T’ai Chi for canoeing - Practice these exercises on shore to perform better on the water.
Here is an extract from the article by Betsey Foster with Karen Knight:
Paddling is all about putting that paddle, single- or double-bladed, into the water and touring, surfing, playing, and having a good time. T’ai Chi is a Chinese martial art performed very slowly on land. So what could one have to do with the other?

Miami to Maine October 20, 2006
The other day we got an email from Margo Pellegrino in New Jersey. She is currently training to prepare for a coastal paddle from Miami, Florida to Camden, Maine set for May 2007.
The objective of this trip is to raise public awareness of the environmental challenges facing our world, and specifically the plight of our oceans. This is her way of taking action at the individual level to help the sustainability of our world. I am very jealous it sounds great.

Hot water October 17, 2006
Across our planet, scientists, businesses, academics and even some politicians and sport enthusiasts are talking about the negative implications of warming temperatures on outdoor recreation and leisure.
The subject of global warming is a hot topic and is becoming increasingly difficult to ignore.

Willy Whitefeather currently lives in southern Arizona and seems to be always on the road (or river) conducting workshops with students and teachers about survival in the outdoors.
Here is a video he did entitled Hope. Have a look at it.
