Bio - Mike

Yukon Boy 

Mike has several expeditions under his belt.  In 2001 he and a group of friends paddled 52 days on the Zambezi River from the headwaters to Victoria Falls.  Later in 2004 he joined his first motorcycle trip exploring Mozambique, Tanzania and Malawi.  Other trips include paddling Amazonian tributaries and backpacking from Eastern Europe through the Middle East to North Africa.  

Mike was born and raised in the Yukon, but will soon be moving to Vancouver, BC, to begin practicing law.  Prior to this he has lived and worked in Ireland, France, Zambia and various parts of Canada including the Arctic.

Mike met Dan in Montreal when they played for the McGill university squash team. Dan was introduced to snowsports and the cold, -53 cold, and in return he invited Mike out to the heat of Africa for adventures and abandoned him in the jungle for several months as a 'volunteer' doing environmental conservation.
