Awesome Chris! So many talents, I'm quite jealous. A wonderful read ( I could hear the mournfull howl of the wolves) The photos are spectacular! Every army rat should have a civvie friend like you to keep us in touch with what is truly wonderful about this great place we call Canada. Thanks much my old chum and kudos on the fab report. andy

Neet trip report. With a little more practice you should be able to author a few tripping books. Look out Kevin Callan. Thanks for the great read. Al Baars

Very nice presentation and writing style. I'm taking a cue from this in a river guide I am putting together.

A very interesting story Chris. Well written and very enjoyable to read. It's nice to see that I might have something to look forward to when I do my first solo trip. Keep up the writing and thanks for the trip report! Paddle Safe Dave

Great trip report, the solo trips always seem to be more interesting reads, maybe because there's more time to observe. The little details you wrire about, (like listening to all the various night noises) add that touch of solitude that makes it real. Rick (frozentripper)

Nice log. I liked day 4 in particular. As a long time soloist I had the shit scared out of me early this past summer by a pack, sounded like the devil. Those brave guys from AA are the ones with 2-4 or even six other people with them, probably all guys i would'nt be nervous either. Keep it up and good luck.

Chris: A wonderful story. I have made a very similar solo trip into Catfish and Burntroot in 1993. In 2004 will be my 32nd year and most of it has been solo. Mostly in the spring for the fishing.

When something is a good 'read' it makes you feel as if you are really there as your article did. I chuckled with ,your descriptions of the overnight sounds totally imagining what you were going through. We're flying in from England in 8 weeks time and I just can't wait. Thanks for wetting our appetites. No doubt that wont be all that'll be wetted once we get started. I look forward to reading your next escapade. victorpeeke at yahoo dot com

Awesome read my man...I too have been portaging for years in the park, the night time is a spectacular and sometime eerie place...See you on the trails!

I too have a Swift Osprey. Awsome boat - very capable and durable. I've taken it all over Northern Canada in whitewater up to CIII (but mostly CII). The boat is not nearly as fragile as your friends at the "club" would have you believe. Loading it only while it's floating...they must be's not made of birch bark. Nothing wrong with a few gel coat scratches - I love my boat and cringe when I carve a new scratch on an unseen rock...but hell if it looks brand new it probably means you aren't using it...and what would be the point of that.
