    Quick vid, Massasauga Provincial Park

    This is my first video posting, so if it doesn't work don't shoot me
    We went to The Massasauga Provincial Park last weekend for some canoeing and general relaxation. Some things I learned:
    Setting up a Superfly in the wind is annoying
    Wind will not start until you try and put your first guyline in
    The Superfly is huge

    So hopefully, this is a quick 25 second tour of the setup.

    What sets a canoeing expedition apart is that it purifies you more rapidly and inescapably than any other travel. Travel a thousand miles by train and you are a brute; pedal five hundred on a bicycle and you remain basically a bourgeois; paddle a hundred in a canoe and you are already a child of nature.

    That's a lovely park. My wife and I camped there for about a week with another couple and had a great time. Some of highly memorable moments where were were literally rolling on the ground laughing.
    It's a very windy park though, especially as you move west. It can be a tough place for a big tarp. We used a 16' wing tarp and we needed a lot of lines to secure it even on the mildly windy days. My knot and rope skills were put to the test that week.

    Now that is what I call a CAVERNOUS SPACE! Also impressed by what you did with the side pull-outs.

    Thanks! I have no idea how guylines tangle so fast and tie knots faster than I can. Oh well, took them off now!

    Glad you were able to get out as well. Do you have tarp sleeves? If not, I recommend getting some because they do make setting up in wind easier and can help keep guylines untangled if you put the lined in the rolls of the tarp as you pack it up.
