    Canada -> Central -> EGL late September Trip

    Hereís a new thread for a late September trip. Iíve booked off Fri Sep 29 to Mon Oct 2. Sounds like lofty and Bubba have too.

    Iím game to go back to Donald Lake but if anyone has any other suggestions, donít be shy. I donít necessarily want to be the organizer. Some of you might be able to go a few days earlier than I.

    Are there some other places that the group hasnít been for a while? Anyone familiar with Killarney?

    76highboy suggested the following locations.

    1. West Temagami
    2. Onaping Lake
    3. Biscotasing
    4. Algoma

    My vote is for 1 or 2 as they are only 5-6 hours drive from Guelph (the centre of the universe, donít you know). The others are 7 and 9 hours. Too far for me.

    Thoughts from others?

    I'm in.

    For what it's worth I really enjoyed Donald Lake & would happily return.
    If we do that (or somewhere in that vicinity) perhaps another pre-trip night at the Sportsman's Lodge is in order, nice way to kick off the trip.

    Ok, we've got a date and at least 4 people in. Let's nail down a location. I need you all to vote and before I go away on vacation at the beginning of September. The one with a route, a destination and the most votes will be the winner. The options are:

    1. Donald Lake, West Temagami.
    2. Killarney, but I've never been to Killarney, so someone else will have to pick the route and destination.
    3. Onaping Lake. Again, I've never been there. 76highboy, can you plan the route and destination?

    1. I really enjoy Donald lake
    Beautiful paddling and for the amount of hammocks we had there did well.

    2. Ive hiked Killarney and have to say the portages can be challenging. Lots of elevation change as well as the sites I've been on aren't always well suited for lots of hammocks. You can get a few but not sure if we can get as many as we need.

    3. I have no desire for opiongo Big lakes. I find very boring. Just open water
    If we did venture Algonquin I enjoyed North tea. I would love to see the waterfalls.

    More I think about it. I would love to go back to North tea. Last time I went it was just a quick overnight rainy night
    Would love to spend a little more time exploring the area.

    The Amable du Fond river was nice and only two short portages ( 65m and 255m)

    I didnít know about this thread. As much as I enjoyed Donald Iíd rather go somewhere Iíve not been to or have not been to in a while. As I mentioned in the email I sent I was looking at Pen/Glydegale because itís been a while since Iíve been to Pen and Iíve never been to Clydegale. North Tea is also one Iíve never been. I missed the last one to North Tea and would be interested in going there.
