About These Adventures

Doug is not only a wonderful artist, he is also an outdoor adventurer. For many years, he has been a trip leader for NOLS (National Outdoor Leadership School), the leading school in wilderness education. As such, he has lead month-long kayak excursions to all parts of the world, logging thousands of paddling miles in some of the most remote shores imaginable. In this blog, he shares some of his experiences with us less daring naturalists.
Because he is often away on excursion for months at a time, this blog may not be updated regularly. But that is OK because it means he will have new adventures to relate in a future blog.
