I think I'll go with my wife and we'll paddle to Kelly Point. Maybe overnight. A good way to avoid crowds might be to go at the height of black fly season. Might not be good for the marriage! :-)

Kempshall Mtn. Road

I'm looking into hiking Kempshall Mtn. and was wondering what was the status of Kempshall Mtn. Road off of 28N east of Long Lake. Private? Closed until it dries out?

After visiting with the canoe builder we decided to contact Swift directly and see about getting webbed seats shipped to us that we can install ourselves.

We found a guy north of here who does custom work on boats. He beautifully refurbished a friend's cedar strip canvas canoe. I'm taking the canoe to him tomorrow. The seats are the big priority.

We do two-trip carries and when carrying the canoe I wear a soft pack of no more than 40 liters. On the trip without the boat I carry a 60 liter barrel in it's own harness.

I did wonder about that. We don't switch sides all that often. About every 45-60 minutes I would say.

We both like the looks of the webbed seats here:...

The cane seat from Essex, although looking more comfortable, looks as narrow as what we have now. It's OK if you sit right in the center of your boat but we like to sit as close to the side as...

Canoe seat problem.

We had new seats put in our canoe but there is a problem in that they are too narrow and you often find yourself sitting on the wooden bar, which is a pain in the butt. We plan on changing the seats...

Didn't you see me at the Capitol on Jan 6? I was wearing a pair of horns.

Actually, I poured it into my car's gas tank at the rate of 0.5 liters per 50 liters of gas. So far, so good.
