- we went through one bottle of stove fuel
- Carol Hodgin's lentil quantity estimates most definitely do not apply to red lentils. It's about 50% too much per person in our humble opinion.
- we don't need so much powdered milk.
- greasy stuff really wants to be in Nalgene bottles.
- a bit of padding on the canoe yoke would make life a lot easier. Maybe some sort of collar.
- one set of four AAs lasts five days in the DC260
- Some day I will figure out how to use the GPS properly.
- Just came back from doing same trip and was surprised to run across your excellent account of the same trip. I could not find a similar trip report before we went on ours. Good job - I like your website. We were 5 guys (range: early 40's to mid 50's from Ottawa, Edmonton, & Detroit) and we found the route to be quite "vigorous" as one writer has described it. Even though our trip was from July 13 to 19 (we spent 6th night on Kiosk lake so we had an early getaway the next morning) we still found the bugs to be unexpectedly bad...particularly mosquitos at the ends of the portages. Route is a good one however! We were also surprised to see so many other people enroute...we thought this area was relatively low utilization - not any more I guess. One question...why the GPS?
We saw some moose but that's about it for wildlife. No fish either. One large group of yankees left us with a mess of discarded food on one site...tsk!
- Hi B. Erickson. Glad you liked the report. I brought the GPS because I wanted to learn how to use in a relatively controlled environment so that I would be able to use it in places where it was actually needed.
