I have been to the BWCA many times, but not for a few years. I wasn’t sure I could still meet the challenge. But when you travel with Peta, anything is possible. She is the most knowledgeable, most organized, and most delightful person I have ever traveled with. The equipment she provided was top-notch, the meals were delicious and healthy, the paddling was geared to our interests and abilities, and we all felt empowered and energized. I probably would not venture into the BWCA again without the guidance of Peta. She is extraordinary.
