I find it amazing he was recording video of his trip from 1991, the camera must have been huge!

"The devilish tide current appeared to be totally random and followed none of the god-given rules and laws."
Bill O'Reilly: I'll tell you why it's not a scam. In my opinion, all right? Tide goes in, tide goes out. Never a miscommunication. You can't explain that. You can explain why the tide goes in…
David Silverman: Tide goes in, tide goes out…?
O'Reilly: Yeah, see, the water — the tide comes in and it goes out, Mr. Silverman. It always comes in…
Silverman: Maybe it's Thor up on Mount Olympus who's making the tides go in and out…
O’Reilly: No no, but you can’t explain that… you can’t explain it…
Am I the only one who, upon reading the title, thought it was about menu shortcuts? (It's not). Talk about feeling silly...

Look, I'm sure this is cool and all, but British Columbia is a LOT of wilderness. You can get lost in the back country pretty easily if you don't know what you're doing, and you can also lose your life ocean kayaking without proper local knowledge. Every year there's a ton of news about clueless tourists who either vanish or have to be rescued by SAR.
"Then I started paddling from Vancouver city to the west in 1991. I did not understand them tides. I did not know you can get pretabulated tables. I was paddling against tides most of the time. Somewhere between Kelsey Bay and Telegraph Cove there was 2 weeks period of fog and rain. I totally lost it. I was running out of food."
How on Earth do you think to go on a multi week ocean kayaking trip and not take tide tables.
