    I've got the spuds covered. If you have the stock and chardpp has the beef then all we need is paprika.

    I'm going to do a run to the St.Lawrence Market tomorrow to pick up spices and some hungarian sausage for myself... Mmmm...

    When we get to canoe lake, maybe we just chuck all of the fixin's into a sack or something. If someone has a spare gymbag, that'd be great. I can also bring my big drybag. No probs...

    I've also got the dozen eggs for Sat breakfast, if we still are rolling that way, otherwise, I have plenty of "just add water" pancake mix. Feeding 6 either way if I recall.

    Some of us left the hang today for various reasons. It was a great time with a great group of people even if it was over a 3 hour paddle to get to that great destination. Right smack in the middle of the Algonquin Piney Woods.

    Stay tuned for the early edition of the official trip report.

    Cheers

    Brian

    I can say that the EGL Spring Hang 2011 in Algonquin Park Ontario was a resounding success. 16 Canadian 'Slingers braved rain and cold to spend four days in the boreal forests of central Ontario.

    My thanks go out to Bcaron, Dant8ro, Kasuko, [o]TTeR, Dead Eye, Jiblets, BrianWillan, Entropy, Ryvr, Odd Duck, Brantwing, Entropy, Shawnh, Christie and Andrew for having made the trip so much fun.

    In a nutshell, despite the moist weather of the first day and a half, the remainder of the weekend proved to be a real pleasure. Moose, 'peckers and beavers, oh my!!! Loons in abundance!! The Algonquin wildlife was out in force and our resident photographer [o]TTer did us proud!!

    Incidentally, if you've been following this thread, you need to know that the Goulash was fantastic!!! A true communal effort!!!

    Look for the full trip report here!!

    Thanks again

    As an update, I'm not sure my canoe is going to be fixed (float able) by this time (free, so cant complain, just haven't had time to fix it's minor needs). If I arrive (prob bringing my hammock partner), would others be willing to get me out? I have my own life jacket (as I swim like a fish... below the water, LMAO), just might need a boat. HOWEVER, If I do get my canoe fixed up, I'm willing to share, so, if mine works, it's available to use.
