Back in a canoe

Brave little paddler
This weekend we went canoeing for the first time since Mallory was born. I don't know that I'm going to create a website for it, though.

The federal government wants to stop printing topo maps

It's not like they gave them away. They've always cost money. It's nice that they want to improve their online map delivery but why stop providing high-quality, printed topo maps? When I'm out wilderness tripping, I want something readable, trustworthy and preferably Tyvek. The federal Ministry of Natural Resources has always been there for me. But not as of January 2007.
