Dwayne Wohlgemuth was raised in a family of 6 kids on a farm near Crooked Creek, Alberta and didn’t step foot in a canoe until his late teens. But his can-do-anything time on the farm certainly gave him the adventurous spirit and mindset that he can learn anything he puts his mind to. His family went fishing often on the Pacific Coast and even made one more adventurous multi-day fishing trip on the East Arm of Great Slave Lake when Dwayne was in highschool. Fresh fish is always on the menu when Dwayne is on the trip. When not canoeing, hiking, or creating maps, Dwayne is preparing for his next trip.
Leanne Robinson was raised in Owen Sound, Ontario and enjoyed lots of time outdoors as a kid but didn’t start any real adventures without motorized wheels until her university days. She has since adventured to all corners of the globe and was pleasantly surprised to find Yellowknife, a place where she could hang her hat and fulfill her need to get thoroughly lost and challenged right outside the front door. She always remains calm and in control, even in the middle of an early August Arctic blizzard.
Emile Wohlgemuth is the eldest child and has already proven his love for the outdoors. He loves fishing, eating fish, and pretending to be an airplane.
Aleksi Wohlgemuth is the youngest child but by no means the least experienced. By the age of 16 months he had spent 4 months in a canoe.
