We’re on the road for our highly anticipated Backcountry Cookout in Algonquin Park. We have a professional chef with us who will create these materpieces for us to devour. See the menu here. We will also be joined by an editor from Canoe Roots magazine who will teach us to fly fish, and write an article for the magazine. 
When you plan a trip, you envision yourself paddling on a beautiful day, sitting around a campfire at night, and waking up to the sunshine. Well, that won’t be the case this weekend. The forecast is calling for more then 70mm of rain, 100% chance of rain today and Saturday. If that’s not bad enough, they are announcing 1-3 cm on Sunday with a high of 1 degree. 


On top of it all, late last night we learnt that lake Opeongo boat launch is closed due to flooding. 

So what does Twiggy do in these situations? He actually gets more excited. He sees these situations as a new challenge. He quickly created a new route for our trip, contacted all our customers to ensure they brought appropriate gear, and he went into planning mode. 

He’s calling this trip more of a “survival” trip. Our challenge, to create a campsite that will maximize our chances of enjoying the weekend. He packed the winter heated tent, an extra large 30×30 tarp, winter sleeping bags, and some games and such to keep us entertained. Are we worried? Not at all. We are traveling with 4 of the customers and we are all in good spirits and excited to conquer this trip. Mother Nature can’t hold Cruising Canoes back! 

Oh wait, we just got a flat tire!! 

Stay tuned folks!
