Thank you for coming to the Toronto Outdoor Adventure Show! It was so good to meet so many new people and to see so many folks in the outdoors community who I hadn’t seen in quite some time.
I couldn’t have asked for a better set up near the Adventures in Paddling stage. I could hear all of the speakers and then chat with the audience members who wandered by after each presentation. I also met many of the paddling-related vendors in my area. That’s the beauty of the Toronto Outdoor Adventure Show. It is as much a networking event – in an outdoorsy sort of way – as it is an event to encourage sales.
There was no denying that The Quiet Guiding Co. booth was mine. It felt a little like being in my own living room. So for those of you who came to visit, now you know what my living room feels like!
The chocolates were a big hit, especially with the security guards.
This young man was a budding naturalist, for sure. He sat and drew his watery landscape for nearly an hour.
I had fun giving away Quiet Guiding Co. Leatherman multitools and a gift certificate for travel on any of my trips.
The only thing I missed: getting photos with all of you. You can catch round-ups of the event from folks like Camper Christina and Sue’s Outdoor Crew.
What’s next for the Quiet Guiding Co.? I’m recovering from the flu and then it is on to winter camping. Then, the Ottawa outdoor show in April. And who knows? Maybe I’ll be at the Outdoor Adventure Show again next year.
