TPZ182: Exploring Newfoundland and Labrador with Justin Barbour

Justin Barbour

With his dog Saku, he explores the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador.  In 2017 they crossed Newfoundland – 700 km by foot, snowshoe, and packraft.  In 2018 with the support from the Royal Canadian Geographical Society and Mountain Equipment Coop, they began a crossing over the Labrador Peninsula on foot and by canoe.  It was a 1,700 km dream project and a way to share some of these last undeveloped wilderness areas.  In the end, their goal of reaching the shores of Hudson Bay fell short by 700 km as high winds pinned them down for 28 days.  You can learn more about these journeys at newfoundlandexplorer.com.  Justin Barbour, welcome to The Pursuit Zone.

    I am a retired engineer and live in the UK. Just a note to say how much I am enjoying your podcasts and just been listening to Justin Barbour who I have also seen on the YouTube channel.
    I listen to yours and Wild and Exposed podcasts via Spotify while doing jobs around the house.
    Keep up the good work.
