The wilds of Northern Ontario are coming to Calgary

    Pick up your free book 'In The Footsteps of Grey Owl' by Gary and Joanie

    TORONTO, March 28 /CNW/ - Imagine yourself paddling past a moose in the
morning mist or listening to the haunting howl of a wolf while lying under a
sky filled with a million stars. These exotic-sounding experiences are easy
for you and your family to enjoy. Meet the experts and find out how:
world-renowned adventure journalists Gary and Joanie McGuffin are bringing the
unique Northern Ontario wilderness experience to Calgary and allowing you to
take it home.
    "We want to show people what is easily accessible in Northern Ontario,
and provide them with the tools and knowledge to help them explore this
summer" say Gary and Joanie McGuffin. The photojournalists, conservationists
and modern-day Canadian explorers will be on hand at the Calgary Adventure
Show, March 31 - April 1.
    If you pre-register at, you will receive a
coupon for your free copy of "In the Footsteps of Grey Owl" written by the
McGuffins' (a $40 value). The book is filled with stunning images and tells
the story of their three-month canoe trip retracing an ancient forest trail.
    Even more of the McGuffins' stunning images will be featured at a live
presentation during the show. "Our live presentation is going to focus on
Quetico Provincial Park, because it's easy and appealing and it has all the
right attributes to talk about traveling with a family" says Joanie McGuffin.
The McGuffins travel with their seven-year-old daughter.
    After you pick up your free book at their booth, make sure to get their
first-hand advice on family adventures, and pick up details on Paddling
Ontario and Ontario Parks, who can help beginners and seasoned adventurers to
arrange memorable experiences.
    "There isn't an experience more quintessentially Canadian than a family
canoe trip" says Joanie McGuffin. "Unfortunately there is a whole generation
out there who have never experienced one." If you are one of those, come and
let Gary and Joanie show even purist city slickers how to safely and easily
get out and have fun.

    The McGuffins (www.OntarioAdventure.Travel/media) are available to the
media for interviews.
