Cliff Jacobson – Plain Speaking on Camping

Pin It

cliff jacobsonHere’s a series of five videos featuring camping guru Cliff Jacobson talking about the nuts and bolts of canoe camping courtesy of the folks at Morral River FIlms

A respected outdoors writer and wilderness guide Cliff  is the most published canoeing/camping writer of this century.Cliff is the author of  Expedition CanoeingCamping’s Top Secrets and a frequent contributor to Boys Life and Scouting magazine.. I interviewed Cliff for Scoutmaster Podcast 54. It’s no surprise that Cliff is also a Distinguished Eagle Scout who found his life’s work in his early years as a Scout.

In this series of five videos Cliff avuncular style gets to the point without mincing words; “Listen, sonny, I’ve done this stuff – I know what I am talking about.” Cliff’s advice is not just for canoeists, but all campers. Take the time to listen, you’ll be glad you did.
