Rob was a camper at Camp Temagami in the 70s and has been guiding since 1999. He loves guiding for the physical challenge it presents, the opportunity it allows him to give to young people what he experienced through tripping, and for the pristine wilderness without the distractions and pressures of city life. His favourite trip meal is Spanish Rice with trip bacon. During the off-season, Rob works as a Mediator in Tampa, Florida, and he spends his time with his wife, children, and grandson; he loves traveling and working out to stay in shape for canoe trips. Rob has paddled more than 2500 kilometers.
