It all comes down to this. A mountain of gear, waiting to be loaded into the canoe. All the planning and preparation has now come to an end, I'm packed and ready to hit the road tomorrow morning. Ellen is picking me up in the morning and we are going to drive to La Ronge and will spend the night in the Nut Point camp ground. I will push off Sunday morning, though I'm not sure what time. The food was the main concern in that I was worried that it wouldn't all fit into the two barrels. As it turns out, it all fit easily with a bit of space to spare. I learned a good deal from my last big trip in '06. This year, 95% of everything is dried goods or dehydrated. This really saves on space and some weight. Click here to see a sample menu.
Well, I hope everyone has a great summer on and off the water.
I look forward to seeing you all in September.
