Eastern Great Lakes Hang Trip Report- Fall 2011 -Sunny with a Chance of Flurries
Just got back from an excellent, albeit, tiring trip to Algonquin.
In a nutshell... 7 went in.. 7 came out... There was rain, snow, headwinds, sunshine, soul sucking beaver bogs, blazing fires, near zero degree temperatures and smiles all around. Everything else is in the details...
- [o]TTer "Mad solo kayaker"
- Dan8tro "I'm Sinking - Bog buster"
- Brantwing "Raven Haired Fabio"
- Wolvaroo "Rookie Firebender"
- Bubba "Bear Bag Master"
- Ryvr "She said I'd do something stupid"
- Chard "The sure-footed woodsman"
More to follow... Must rest.....must res........:sleep::sleep::sleep:
Mud Pardee on the Bog that tried to eat my Buddy!
Mother Nature threw down the gauntlet on this EGL adventure and I know we'll be talking about it for many years to come! We asked for a challenge and our 32 km - 10 portage route from Smoke to Cache was nothing short of that! From a cold and snowy morning to a "man eating" mud labyrinth, we embraced the vicious headwinds and emerged moist but victorious...
Hahaha ok my face is wind burned, I reek of A535 and I still only have partial use of my arms but I had an awesome trip and thank my Camp Mates for it, especially the portage help, I'd still be on that 1600m without ya :huh:!
Voting for Snowshoes & Pulk on the next one?? Didn’t have a lot of time to shoot but here's a couple that will go in the EGL Book for 2011!
