Thank you for visiting. I hope you got some ideas and wind up on more ambitious and memorable trips as a result. I grew weary of listening to people complain about portages and decided that since I had something unique to say...I should say it! I feel better already. If you have something constructive to say, I'd like to hear it, but be sure the word "canoe" leads in your email title, or my outlook rule will delete it as spam. Thanks.

Postscript 2011,
I made this website back in 2003 and thank all those who have thanked me or just asked questions whose answers I subsequently tried to incorporate into the site. I decided long ago to leave intact the passionate and confident writing style despite those few who don't see the humour of it. I'm simply stressing the point.
