     The proposed trip will take place at Ten Mile Pond, located
360 km west of St. John's, Newfoundland Canada.  Depending on
which type of trip you choose you could start at TEN MILE POND
and travel through several inland waterways, portaging several
times (in season), eventually reaching the ocean.  During this
trip you would have travelled a distance of between 40 and 100

     During this trip you can fish for salmon and several kinds
of trout.  During this trip you could also hunt for several kinds
of water-foul, partridge and big game (bear and Moose), in
Meals and equipment(except sleeping bag) provided.

     You will arrive at a inland lodge the first night of the
expedition and will be briefed on the country's terrain and water
