    Canada>Ontario>Algonquin>EGL Canoe Hang - Summer 2014 - Aug 1-4

    Hi all,

    I can't think of a better way to enjoy this glorious weather than by doing a long weekend of canoeing and hammocking with friends.

    When: August 1-4th, 2014

    Where: A minor point that I'm sure we'll resolve in the weeks to come. Personally, I'm eager to spend a few extra hours on the road in favour of new vistas further north. Of course, northern Algonquin is beautiful, but places like Temagami, the Spanish, the French or La Cloche have always interested me. Somewhere on Crown land would be nice as well.

    As always, this is an open invitation to all interested.



    See you on the water!

    I'm 99.99% certain I cannot attend. I'll keep an eye on the thread in case the 0.01% comes into play. If I don't see anyone, have a great and safe trip!!

    As usual, I'm waiting to see where and how ambitious a trip it is.

    Time's not the problem, long hard days with multiple km long portages is.

    One of these days, one of these days!!

    My family will be in Elliot Lake during this time period. I hope to get in some backpacking on the Voyageur Trail between Elliot Lake and Iron Bridge (hike 40 kms to celebrate the Voyageur Trails 40th Anniversary). I also hope to take the entire family for a short three day/two night backpacking trip into Mississagi Provincial Park.

    I am sure everyone that joins will have a great trip. All those locations sound excellent.

    Cheers

    Just got back from Hiking the Highland Trail in Algonquin. Now I have the itch, itching the 'squito bites and itch to get back out there.

    Figured I would post here to see if any ideas for route have come across anyone.
