The first time I've been seriously canoeing in two years. Read the report. I'm extremely grateful to Irene for indulging me.
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 announced today that it would still print paper maps. Imagine that. The Tories decide not to close something.
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.
...Banff was that beautiful. Johanna Wandel has some astounding pictures of the place on her blog. I have no idea what she's doing there. Probably work-related, judging from the title. I hope to be able to manufacture an excuse to go there myself.
This will about do it for me for this paddling/camping season, I imagine. I got back last week from five lovely days in Temagami, paddling to Ishpatina Ridge. I've done the usual chatty log with photos.
