New release forms added here: High Adventure - July 7th. Please fill out and get a copy to Greg LeBlanc.
I’ve checked with Naturally Superior and they say cell phone coverage will be limited or non-existent for most of our paddling trip, but we should have some near Wawa and Sault St Marie. If you plan to use a cell phone in Canada, check with your phone provider because you may have to have them turn-on coverage for Canada for your phone. Of course, at an additional charge. Our guides will be bringing a satellite phone for emergency calls. They and I will bring VHF radios for weather and emergency calls to the Canadian Coast Guard.
Also if you plan to make a future foreign trip, you need to check with the U.S. State Dept. to see if the country you are visiting has a Passport Expiration Restriction. Some countries require that your passport cannot have an expiration date of less than X months (often 6 months) or the won’t let you enter. Canada does NOT have this requirement – I checked.
Folks, PARENTS OF HA SCOUTS. MAKE SURE THEY READ THIS
We had a meeting last week for HA. Here are some key “To Do” items and dates:
I found the statements below on the State Department’s web site and on the Canada Border Services Agency’s (CBSA) web site regarding permission for a non-parent, non-guardian to supervise children going into / out of Canada.
I have attached the sample letter provided by CBSA. I have prefilled the area labeled “information about accompanying person” and “contact information during trip”. We should obtain this form for each minor child traveling with us that will not be accompanied by their own parent.
Full trip information and all forms are found here: High Adventure - July 7th
