Deryck N. Robertson,
At Paddler Press, we are outdoors people and our site pages are named accordingly to canoe trip lingo. The Put In is where the trip begins. The Trip Log is a reminder of where we’ve been, the details of The Journey. The Portage is where we get out of our boats, stretch our legs, and carry our junk to the next put in. The Campfire is where we drink coffee, tell stories (for the umpteenth time), laugh, and many time, just sit and reflect.
