"Lakes, A Love Affair" Movie Trailer

Kerry McNally is a Twin Cities television personality and former Discovery Channel host. I guided him this summer on his first trip into the BWCAW. He found the Boundary Waters so inspiring that he's featuring footage from our canoe trip and scenic plane ride prominently in his new movie. It's called Lakes, A Love Affair. The DVD features striking footage of the Land of 10,000 Lakes - from Lake Superior to the BWCAW to Brainerd to the urban lakes of the Twin Cities. The DVD is available at http://www.lakesaloveaffair.com/.

Besides getting some stunning video on the canoe trip, we laughed a lot. In addition to being a television host and movie producer, Kerry is a stand-up comic. Really. He's performed comedy routines on stage in NYC. And keep your eyes out to see him on Letterman one of these days!

Nov. 23, 2009 UPDATE: The DVD is now for sale at www.lakesaloveaffiar.com for only $14.95 plus s&h.

Exciting! We'll be looking for the film.

I have always wanted to take the time to canoe the Boundary Waters and I will definitely have to be on the lookout to pick up this film. . .

I use to canoe quite a bit growing up in Texas, but for the past few decades I have limited my on water time to rivers. Time to consider something new.

I ordered two of the DVDs two months ago and have not received them. PayPal did not respond to my correspondance asking about any delays. Is there a way to track DVD orders?
