Have you ever rented a kayak that leaked? If you have, you may sympathize with the folks in this video:

  1. Hey!

    My name is Theo and I'm working with Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (CPAWS) and Parks Canada on a project to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Parks Canada. You did such a stellar job of mentioning our contest last year on your blog, we thought we'd flag the 2011 details :) We're asking Canadians to help build the first national parks bucket list:

    To enter the contest, you simply write, in 50 words or less, the story of your national parks dream experience. Maybe it's surfing the big waves of Pacific Rim National Park, or hiking the Cabot Trail in Cape Breton? We're looking for dreams ranging from the wildest excursion to the most stunning view, wildlife sighting, paddling haven or trekking thrill.

    The top-voted dream will win the grand prize trip for two to the Nahanni. The trip includes airfare from anywhere in Canada, and is valued at more than $10,000. The two runners up will receive prize packages valued at over $500 and $300 each and include a Mountain Equipment Co-Op Shopping Spree, Parks Canada National Park and Historic Site Seasonal Passes, great gear by CPAWS and offers from Explore Magazine.

    We thought might be of interest to your readers.

    If you do end up writing about it, your readers might also be interested in this remarkable music and film project that also celebrate's the 100th anniversary. I'm not involved with it, but I thought the two together might make a stronger story:

    Thanks and all the best!
