Hello all,

Back in the early 2000s, Herb Pohl did a lengthy solo trip through Richmond Gulf, up to Clearwater Lake and back down the Nastapoka River. There is a Youtube video from a symposium presentation he made on the trip.

It is my understanding that Herb was a mighty note taker, and made excellent trip reports. Does anyone know if there is a written account of this trip that can be found online or in old issues of Nastawgan? My searching so far has come up short.

Thanks much,
James Cook

Fall 1991 issue. This link should work

https://www.myccr.com/sites/default/fil ... all_91.pdf

Also Chapter 9, "Umiujaq CIrcle" in his book, "The Lure of Faraway Places" - available on Kindle for ~$7 Cdn, and a great read.

Should have added this - some info and a slide show on Al Stirt's Labrador web site:

Thanks for this too.
I'd already uncovered the Al Stirt treasure chest and explored deeply. Great photos of spectacular trips!

Cheers!
