    Canada->Ontario->EGL->2018 Canoeing Season > Autumn Trout'n Leaves Hang Sept 24-30, 2018

    Chicamoula anyone?


    Autumn Trout'n Leaves Trip

    • Late September/Early October: Algonquin Weeklonger's/Marshmallow rendezvous
    • When: Mon Sept 24 - Sun Sept 30, 2018. Hopefully we'll have some fall colour
    • Where: Weeklongers - Midweek - Canoe L. to McIntosh, Marshmallows - Weekend Canoe to Tom Thomson
    • Notes: Long paddle into Tom Thomson followed by 2.3 km portage to McIntosh. I've never seen a fish caught on Tom Thomson.
    • Opportunities: Rationalize gear (eg. stoves, tarps, axes and saws)
    • Meal Ideas: Group soups or not? Food caches/resupply for Weeklongers


    Note: All that being said, I'm personally inclined towards a Thu Sept 27 - Sun Sept 30 single destination of Chicamoula on McIntosh. Burning too many spouse points this season.

    I'm in for the 'Full Monty'.

    Bringing no food but a handful of rice & relying on fish to sustain me.

    What could possibly go wrong?

    I think Chard just means "rationalize bringing your own gear even though everyone else probably packed one."

    ratio...rational... ra... whatever... I don't get it....

    Mrs Niagara is on board and will be joining... we will be using our flat ground-type hammocks.... almost like you're touching the earth. We are thinking in on Thursday possibly (with some re-supply item requests). Been a while since we've done Algonquin. looking to forward to see what pans out.
