    Well that was cryptic. You'll have to 'splain to me around the campfire.

    Some questions. The week long trip would be Canoe-Joe-Tepee-Little Oxtongue River-Tom Thomson- McIntosh and back? I'll have to see how my foot and leg progress before committing to that 2390m portage.
    No fish caught on Tom Thomson?!? Don't like the idea of back to back skunked trips.
    I might have to be an extended marshmallow. Maybe Sept 26-30 in the Tom Thomson,Little doe, Joe Lake area.

    Hiya. You've got the route right. It's a long paddle with one short portage, a hop over a beaver dam that's been there since the dawn of time and then a long but fairly level portage into Ink L..

    I suppose that there's fish in TT, but I've never seen one.

    I'm planning to go in the 24th, no problem meeting you at the Tom Thomson end of the portage on the 26th & help get you over. You really don't want to miss McIntosh.

    For what it's worth, I'm looking at attempting the TomT-Ink portage on the morning of the Thursday the 27th, and will probably be caching most of my food at the TomT end of the portage.

    Do you weeklongers plan/recommend to push right through to McIntosh in one day, or stopping for a night along the way?

    Your advice would be welcome as I've never done Canoe to McIntosh. It looks challenging but doable in a single day if I'm reading the map right.

    Just trying to plan things so I don't burn through all my spousal shore leave, but still get in a bit of group fun.

    Canoe to McIntosh is roughly a five to six hour trip however that can be shortened a bit with single carries across the portages and some hard paddling. Granted I was in better shape, but we used to do it regularly back in the day.

    It'd be nice to see McIntosh and Chicamoula again. Lovely spot, even if it's just overnight.


    A particularly cold, windy, miserable early spring day on Chicamoula back in 2009. That shelter would soon have four sides and become a smokehouse from hell. Best cinnamon rolls ever though! Oh yeah, I built that backrest on the regulation Algonquin log seat. Luxury!

    Planning for the extended marshmellow tour at this point. 27th to 30th

    BUT.....things could change.
    No signs,no fees,no rules,nobody. My kind of campsite.
    See and understand the obvious and the mysteries will disappear.
