    Wow! Let's hope everyone makes it through this spring safely. See you in a little over a month.

    To All:
    Unless there are any objections, let's go with Route 1. Magnetewan > Daisy > Misty > Camp > Little Misty > Queer > Little Trout > Camp/Camp > Butt > Hambone > Magnetewan > Out. With all of the little hops, make sure you pack light and tight. It's all of the bits and pieces in the canoe that make portaging such a chore. Let's plan to meet up at the Huntsville Tim's on Hwy 11 early on the morning of the 29th.



    As always, can I get a role-call of everyone coming so we can settle paddling partners (if required). Mark down name, flatwater skill (novice/rookie/veteran), dates, canoeing preference (eg. solo, looking for partner in stern/bow)

    Just to clarify - we meet up for the weekend (those of us who are short tripping) on little trout lake? That would be in at access three, across 3 inches of Magnetawan-> short portage -> Hambone -> short muddy portage -> Butt/Eagle/Ralph Bice -> longer, easy portage -> little trout

    I've never been that way, but my wife is a little worried about the longish paddle across Butt/Eagle/Ralph Bice. Have I got that right? i think we can do it.
    Qualified to do almost anything with almost nothing. Ask me how!

    You've got it right; Firday and Saturday nights on Little Trout Lake. The first two lakes are very short. It's true that the Ralph Bice (Butt) is a long stretch, but I don't think it's much longer then the Rock Lake to Pen stretch of last year.

    That being said, if you guys still aren't feeling completely comfortable, I don't see why we can't shift camp to Ralph Bice. It is a beautiful lake if not a little more crowded. Just let me know.

    Random fyi

    24 oz Sawyer permethrin spray on amazon - $12.24 US and ships to Canada. Shipping was $16 no matter how many I ordered.

    I'd prefer Little Trout if I'm paddling in Fri. A bit of a work out but the winds should help on the way there.

    One Month Out!!!!

    The sweet countdown has begun. Based on some info on a related thread, the ice is still in on Tea Lake, but just a little south of there, it's an entirely different story! I've been keeping an eye on Mountain Trout House Marina in Dorset for years now and the ice is out! Everyone planning an early trip to Algonquin can start breathing a little easier. This photo can be real time, but at the time of posting (9am Apr 29), you can still see the far half of the bay covered in dark ice.



    So far it looks like there might about half a dozen of us heading in, some for three nights, some for two. Since we're going in through Magnetewan Lake on the west side of the Park, why don't we just plan to meet up at the Huntsville Tim's on Hwy 11 at 7am and/or Kearney at 8am.

    As usual, I'll be bringing a group tarp, axe and saw and if we want to go with group dinners, I can bring my pot as well.
