ROUTE UPDATE!

Hey gang, we are doing 'Swift Across America' again in December.

There are currently SIX spots left on the trailer. We are set to visit the following states *deep breath*: CA, ID, MT, UT, AZ, NM, TX, LA, MI, MN, IL, OH, PA, MD, VA, MO, KT, TN, NC, SC, and FLA. We will deliver anywhere in the lower 48. To get a spot on the trailer, we would need your order within the next two weeks MAXIMUM to build it in time. If you'd like Swift Claus (aka Chris our driver, aka Chris Kringle) to bring a boat to your front door for the holidays, now is your chance.

This recent image hits all my high notes: a red canoe, a couple of wooden paddles, water, some reflection and a vintage styling!

Filming day! We've got lots of great content coming.

New Swift owners especially will find this valuable. After this series, we'll start looking at our 2022 R&D product videos. There's some really interesting stuff in the queue.

If there's anything you'd like to see us cover in a video, drop a comment below!

A follow up to the “Paddling In the October Rain” shot I posted yesterday.

This was taken around the same time, as @martymorissetteyt and I worked our way back towards home. If you’re interested in the full trip, follow the link in his profile; he posted a fun video (“SECRET HACK”) on YouTube yesterday!

I've really come to love sleeping in lean-to shelters, especially in significant weather.

They provide the best protection for storms. Not only are you well protected, you are also right there in the elements and can fully experience the storm! Not to mention, they give you a place to hang up your gear and keep it dry. Oh, and no tent set up!

Would you be interested in seeing me film an overnight winter camp in one? I think it could be really fun in a snow storm..

My paddling buddy's new boat. Our Georgian Bay trip was her maiden voyage. She's a beauty!

Two days on the Connecticut River in NH with fall colors and crisp air.

Video coming tomorrow at noon EDT! #canoecamping #swiftcanoeandkayak #swiftosprey

Walking along the island’s edge, enjoying the warm light, revelling in the silence and stillness of a fine October evening.

Finally started to go through my hundreds of pictures from summer trips.

A couple of my cruiser from a early June trip to Tom Thompson Lake. It is currently at @swiftcanoeandkayak getting some repairs from a few mishaps this year. Looking forward to next summer.

When you’re camping on an island & your buddy suggests a canoe run to “pick up a few pieces of driftwood”!

I just delivered a completed set of images from a photoshoot I did with YouTuber Marty Martymorissette ( @martymorissetteyt ) last week.

Always fun to capture someone actively involved in activities they love! One sample image posted here, swipe over to check it out.

Chris left yesterday to visit our US home bases in New York and Connecticut.

He's got great timing too, because it snowed in Muskoka yesterday morning and I don't know if those boats want to see the snow just yet. There's still time to paddle!. Safe travels, Chris. We'll see everyone soon at @baycreekpaddling , @mountainman_oldforge , @adklakesandtrails , and @collinsvillecanoe !

Some places just make such an impression on you that you don’t ever forget them.

I was 16 yrs old when I first visited this lake, and it’s as striking today as it was back then!

Wednesday @martymorissetteyt and I enjoyed what may have been the last truly warm October evening of the year.



If you want to see more of the incredible scenery of that clear, turquoise lake, check out Marty’s latest YouTube video (link in his profile), or google “camping on a magical lake”; highly recommended!

Sharing stories, laughs, personal histories, and learning all about @martymorissetteyt’s passion and ambitious plans for content creation in the years ahead. Definitely a man to follow and learn from!

Enjoying some spectacular crown land camping & paddling with @martymorissetteyt.

Just about perfect conditions for this time of year, and a very special lake too.
