labrador passage

filmmaker and explorer peter marshall contacted me last year about making him a pair of boots for this journey. i made the boots, he’s tested them out on a short run canoe trip and he’s now making final preparations for his epic labrador passage! …AND there is a brief interview with yours truly in the film! check the trailer out…

“LABRADOR PASSAGE” is a documentary film project co-produced by Twin Cites Public Television that follows two men who will set out in June, 2014, to retrace Mina Hubbard’s historic 1905 canoe journey through Labrador. The unique aspect of the trip is that the crew will only use non-synthetic equipment. We’re talking the classics here: waxed canvas tent, tin-cloth rain gear, and a cedar canvas canoe. Much of this equipment that will be used will be handmade by local craftspeople. On this website, you can acquaint yourself with the history of the expedition, as well as the process of putting the outfit together.
