Fantastic! Please let us know when it hits other stores (my local shop is Adventure Guide in Waterloo).

I must say I had noticed that Kilarney was not as well covered in your book series Kevin. I have them all, and look forward to getting this one too. Yours books help me get through the long winter months until I can get back out on the water.

Hi Kevin;

Do you have a book tour?

Thanks,
Doug

What timeliness, I plan to paddle the French (Eighteen-Mile Island Loop) this September. Will copies be available at Canoecopia or dinner Friday night?

Check the "Events" forum for Kevin's schedule.

(Kevin can feel free to add any updates that he knows of. :wink: )

Glad to hear it's ready to roll, Kevin. Looking forward to seeing you in Barrie.

Kevin:

Is it possible for you to ask your publisher to put out a version of your books with a spiral bind ? Makes it easier to read while on the throne. :D

Waterproof pages would be nice while sititng at the campsites and someone leaves your book out overnite. :(

Hello. Thanks for sharing my excitement.

Yes, the book will be at Canoecopia (I'm giving a presentation on it). I'll try to bring a copy on the Friday night dinner but that would eliminate one hand to hold beer with.

Yes, I'm doing a book tour (thanks Barb for keeping me organized once again). :o I have one more place to post for the presentation schedule - I'llbe at Adventure Guide in Waterloo on April 17th. 7:00 pm.

No, my publisher said that spiral bound books are actually quite dangerous while sitting on the throne, and he sells more books if you keep forgetting them outside on a rainy night. :wink:

Excellent! I look forward to meeting you in person Kevin!

Alway's useful as backup toilet paper, although I don't recommend adding that benefit as a book jacket recommendation! :wink:

Just finished reading your original Killarney book published 1990. ( you've been paddlin a long time for a young guy) Found it in our local used book store. Still an excellent read. Lots of pictures and history.
Can't wait to get the new one.

Kevin's first stop is at the Outing Club of East York on Thur March 23 around 7:30 at S.Walter Stewart Library.

Feel free to come by.
I have seen a couple of Kevin's short videos at the WCA symposium----sort of "Mr. Bean goes canoeing". Hilarious!! Kevin is getting even better at his filmaking.

I was doing a search on the Chapters website to see if Kevin's new book was in stock yet and found another book due in July. It is called "Misadventures in a Canoe". What is this one about?

Here's Kevin with a copy at the Outdoor Adventure show yesterday. He was there signing copies and talking to everyone. Kevin, you're a social butterfly. :lol:

The book is on Killarney and the French Rivers, really cool since my Long May Weekend trip this year is going to Killarney and my Summer trip is planned for the French River. Kevin, I expect you to continue to cater to my needs in the future.

I was searching the site for Kevin's book on the French and Killarney. He apparently has another book coming out in July titled "Misadventures in a Canoe.

He talked a bit about it yesterday. I think it's his attempt to try and be humbe, and take the edge off his "God's gift to canoeing" image. :lol: It sounds like it's going to be lots of funny stories.
