The Stikine River:

A Journey of a Lifetime

By Jessica Campbell

It has been said by many people, many times, that life is a journey.

Well, jumping aboard a two-week canoe trip with eight people I did not know to be flushed out into the ocean (and another country for that matter) was surely one way to explore what’s at the heart of this very statement.

“Don’t think about it!” she says to me in true Amy Flexman fashion over Facebook whilst I am live on-air at the very radio station we first met, “Just say yes!”

So I did.

Little did I know at the time, the world-class Stikine River is considered to be the “Grand Canyon” of Canada. Her constant hiss, almost inexplicable, is as though She is first and foremost telling you to quiet the mind, let-go, and simply float: Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. While agreeing to take part – to be an innocent observer, participant even – was unknowingly all I had to do to “arrive,” what happened along the way is what keeps me coming back. To the moments. To the memories…

To Flexpeditions.

It’s a story of a story of a story…
A waving of a waving of a waving…

So let’s just sit back and enjoy the ride.
