In addition to guiding people on well over 200 canoe and ski trips on and around the Bowron Lakes Chain, Dave has taken people around the Cariboo Mountains in all seasons.

"My personal passion, the natural environment, is supported by a broad collection of outdoor and safety skills, and fed by a strong knowledge base on subjects ranging from flora and fauna, animal tracking and photography, to history, geography, geology and climatology. It is tied to a sincere desire to share experience with others. It's this desire to illustrate and communicate the profound wonder of our natural environment that ideally suits me and my company to the guiding profession."

We really appreciated your superb canoemanship, physical and emotional strength, fine singing voice and ready smile. Thanks for making our experience truly memorable. - Allison and Sumalee

Thank you for your help, support and encouragement. . . . an excellent teacher - knowing when to let us muddle along on our own and when to offer positive suggestions. Your willingness to "go the extra mile" allowed us experiences that would otherwise have been denied us. You contributed greatly in making this a memorable trip. Your enthusiasm and sense of fun will be remembered. - Sharon Mackintosh, Prince George, BC
