Jim's 65th birthday was in February 2010. He has additional trips planned to canoe east and south from his home on the Flambeau. "Three years after my 7 month, 2900 mile trip to Montana in 2005, I was eager, excited even, to take another canoe trip. I'd already gone west, mates, so now, would it be north, east or south? Crikey, I'd best take my canoeabout north while I can still shoulder a canoe because there be wilderness in that direction! I didn't know it then, but I had my support crew out there already."
