The second Borealis Paddling Expedition launched earlier this month from Great Slave Lake in Canada's Northwest Territories, embarking an a two-month adventure to generate donations toward a scholarship endowment for Camp Manito-wish in Boulder Junction, Wisconsin. Across the course of two months, expedition members Meg Casey, Nina Emery, Beth Halley, Karen Stanley and Emily Stirr will paddle and portage their Bell Alaskan canoes to Kugluktuk, an Inuit outpost on the Arctic Ocean coast, by way of the Emile, Coppermine, Kendall and Rae rivers. This will take fuel, and when you are the engine, the fuel is food. Such an ambitious two-month undertaking will require a good deal of food to stoke their engines. In addition to fishing for their meals, they'll take plenty of foodstuffs along with them. During a break from organizing their supplies at Stirr's parents' home on Madison's far west side before the Borealis team departed for their adventure, Casey provided an overview of some of the foodstuffs they'll be taking along, and talked about some of the elaborate back-country delicacies they'll be cooking up on the tundra.
