He does have a great blog.
As Dirk eluded to in the interview, we are headed out for a backcountry ski trip of 8-10 days, skiing around the Bowron Lake Circuit, a world renowned canoe paddling circuit of 116 km. I had attempted to do this with a couple friends last year, but due to way too much deep fresh snow, it made the going tough, so we only went part way and just did day trips. Dirk caught wind of our repeat attempt this year, and was in like a dirty shirt. It will be good to have a young fella like him to break trail, the other two involved are even older than me.
