From children’s games to Red Seal mechanic
Joe Gibot is the kind of guy who makes you jealous of how he spent his childhood. When asked about his favourite childhood memories, he recounts one adventure after another, from being out in the woods making up games — like using bark to pretend to buy and sell dried meat — to floating birchbark boats tied to a string.
Joe grew up, of course, and those days playing on and around the Peace River in places with names like Marlip’s Creek, Rocky Point and the Coupé dam are gone. But the carefree memories remain — memories full of freedom to explore and enjoy the country that is still his home.
