October 2008 - KOKODA & MT WILHELM UPDATE - PNG is a place truely worth visiting. As our closest neighbour to Australia, its a world away in its unique cultures and diverse environments. After guiding the Kokoda Track, we were fortunate enough to have the time to visit Lae on the north coast and experience the Lae show with over 70 sing sing tribes. The coffee of Goroka, the roads of Kundiawa, the lakes and trek up Mt Wilhelm in the early morning hours, the hike across the old road to Bundi and the PMV journey down the treacherous mountain road in a downpour of rain. The perfect tropical waters off of Madang and the countless encounters and unforgettable hospitality of the expats. PNG offered us many experiences.........from tear gas, minor riots and police corruption to tranquil waters, friendly people and delicious fresh jungle fruits. I will return again. Check out the photos and stories. KP

August 2008 - YUKON RIVER QUEST UPDATE - Now that my body has recovered from this almighty race, I thought an update would be nice... Lisa and I had an incredible and rewarding race; winning the female tandem kayak in 53 hours and 55 minutes, with a new record in hand by 5 hours and placing 30th overall out of 89 starting boats. This year's weather was interesting... And with their great technical abilities, a new river record was set by the Kisseynew crew of 39 hours and 32 minutes. It was a physically and mentally demanding race, but well worth all the energy to meet and compete with entrants and support crews from 12 different countries! Take a look at the photos and remember 'When you are wanting to escape life on land - go Seaward.'  See you on the water! Cheers, KP

A mere 747km down the Yukon river from Whitehorse to Dawson City, Yukon Territory, Canada. In previous years, the race has been completed in just 40 hours!
