    Bubba, I've got space in my canoe.

    I had contemplated renting a solo, but I'm going to use that money for some down to make some quilts.

    Thanks a lot! Looking forward to it. You going to have a quilt or two made before the weekend?

    IIRC Chard has to pick up his canoe in Gravenhurst so he wouldn't be getting to the park until 10:30 or so. So basically, we can all head out together after Chard picks up his canoe or since he is soloing, the rest of us can leave earlier and meet him at camp. Since I have a 5 hour drive I'm not opposed to a later push off but if Jiblets and the others want to leave earlier, then that's fine with me as well.

    Thanks for the offer! I've wanted to try a solo since I first saw the Shearwaters. (I'm in the market to buy) the weather looks promising for winds so I should fare OK on the lakes.

    What time are we meeting up? At Canoe Lake?

    I'm driving thru the park to get my canoe in Huntsville so I won't say no to Timmies...

    Jiblets kindly offered me a seat in his canoe already.

    Hey guys,

    As Bubba mentioned, I won't likely get to Canoe lake before 10:15-10:30. If any of group want to head out earlier, feel free. I'd just recommend, for safety's sake, that no one goes off by themselves unless they're an experienced paddler.

    Chenvre, given the late start, I'll probably just pass by the Huntsville Tim's and meet up at Canoe Lake. If you're there around 10am, look for a red and grey blur; that'll be me buzzing down Hwy 60 with my canoe on the roof.

    So looks good for 10ish at canoe. Gears all set aside and ready to go. Just have to choose which formal wear to bring.

    I do have a problem though. My medicinal flask only has 2 or 3 oz left in it and there's no more of that specific medicine so I'll have to find a way of getting rid of it before filling it anew.


    I'll assume at this point that we're doing our own food unless someone wants to be decisive on the issue.

    Looking forward to getting out.

    I'll be at Canoe Lake around 10:00 - 10:30. Drive safe and see everyone there.

    I was at Canadian Outdoor Equipment the other day and told them we were going to try alternate ways of fire starting. I bought a flint and steel kit and have a second one for raffle.
