While we usually don’t post just quotes here, this one has to be one of the best. Kirk was the founder of the Canadian Canoe Museum, located in Peterborough, Ontario. I had the pleasure of listening to a presentation of his once and meeting him afterward. This quote really sums up for me what life is about.

You have to do what you can, do your best with what you are. And you have to believe in wilderness. If you do that you can’t go wrong.

-Kirk Wipper
