    Canada->Ontario->EGL->2018 Canoeing Season



    EGL 2018 Canoeing Season Lineup

    Hey folks, I wanted to set an ambitious schedule for 2018 and throw out some of the trips that I'd love to try to get in this year. It'll be great to get out with old friends and with luck, we might even make some new ones. If you can hang a bear bag and say "Chowda", you're welcome.


    • Spring Trout'n Trip
      • May 14-21- Weeklonger's/Marshmallow rendezvous. McIntosh would be my first choice. Opeongo, Temagami also sounds wonderful, but may be a little far for some. May 5-13 might be better depending on ice-out.

    • Yurt Raising Labour Camp
      • ​Date TBD: One of our own could use a hand moving building materials to a backwoods cottage site. Muscle and sweat to be balanced with meat and beer. The more hands we have the faster we'll be done. If hauling's not your speed, then camp cooks are welcome.

    • ​Lower Madawaska Sunken Canoe Hang
      • June ?: ConnieB and Martin to advise. A little whitewater playing around on the beautiful Madawaska River near Bancroft. Whitewater gear rentals may be required for qualified paddlers. Portaging's an easy option.

    • Summer Coastal Cruise
      • July/August: French River down to the Georgian Bay

    • Autumn Trout'n Leaves Trip
      • Late September/Early October: Algonquin/Killarney Weeklonger's/Marshmallow rendezvous.


    Just throwing out a dream paddling season. Specific will be managed on Google Sheets..

    Anyone interested? These are just ideas. Like most of our hangs, the where doesn't really matter, just the when.

    Now yer talkin'!

    I'm a YES for everything, dates (& my bride) permitting. Except the Yurt raising, that one is mandatory for me or I'm in big trouble with Whet Newdell.

    My vote for Spring trout is McIntosh.

    Wish I could go to all of them but Iím relegated to Spring and Autumn. Speaking as a Marshmallows, I would like to put forth that the end meet up be on a lake with either no or a short portage. Since I always have cancelling last minute as a possibility due to home life, Iíll leave it to the other Marshmallows to chime in with their input.

    If there is a weeklong trip which includes McIntosh, we could always do the end meet up on good old Tom Thompson. There's only a short portage from Canoe Lake to get to Tom Thompson for the Marshmallows.

    I'd love to attend yurt raising date and distance depending. Have to start getting in a shape other than oval and failing that I don't mind pulling off KP duties.
    If it's hot / humid there's AC right?

    No trying to suggest anything but whilst yurting...





    Judging by their grill, these guys below must be a long lost Patagonian chapter of the EGL!!!!





    Costco Whole Lamb $180-$255. 10 guys/2 HUGE meals for about $9-$12.5 each meal. Not too bad.

    I'm interested in the early fall Algonquin trip, would love a week up there and it'll be the soonest I can make it this year (2nd kid coming in May).
    It is a very alert, active sheep, with a stylish, lively carriage.

    I use a Juki & Pfaffs w/ assorted attachments, and have serviced lots of vintage machines. Any questions?

    Hi Mrcheviot! Glad to hear you might be joining us. EGL stands for Eastern Great Lakes and Rochester's definitely one of the family. I hope you like good food, drink and did I mention food.

    Having had to miss the winter season for various reasons, I'm rearing to go.

    For the spring trip I might be looking to do both the start and end weekends. Unfortunately I have to reserve my CLT experiences for the summer.

    I'd also be up for the French if it's in July. I usually reserve mid august for my long solo trip.

    Hope everyone has been doing well.

    Most likely in for the yurt "erection". easy now!
    Georgian bay sounds very interesting. Maybe around philip edward island. Nudge nudge,wink wink.
    Ive already booked off 1/2 of september so I'm in for some hangin & paddlin.

    Re: yurt. Will it have the base already there ? Who dosn't mind eating lamb 2 days in a row
    No signs,no fees,no rules,nobody. My kind of campsite.
    See and understand the obvious and the mysteries will disappear.
