Bob has guided wilderness trips throughout northern Ontario and further afield since the early 1990s. His passion is finding Temagami's lost canoe and snowshoe routes so that they can be spared the axe. To pay the bills, Bob is a firefighter in North Bay. When not running into burning buildings, he keeps himself busy with wild land firefighting, ambulance first response, haz mat incidents, auto extrication, and ice water rescue. He is also certified as a Primary Care Paramedic.
