... that while I've taken dozens of trips into the Algonquin interior, there aren't many of them I can write about. While I have photos from all and videos from many, my camping trips from years past aren't exactly fresh in my memory. The photos and videos I have are snapshots in time with huge gaps between them. I can only write "... and then I crawled into my tent" so many times, having no recollection of what I spent the rest of that day doing, before I start feeling like a schmuck.
I have fantastic memories of every trip I've ever taken, and could tell a story or three about each of them. But to write a detailed 'there and back again' trip report means filling in too many gaps with generalities or fabrications, and I'm not comfortable with either.
On the bright side, I've booked my first trip of the 2016 camping season: a 5 day solo starting April 29th. I'm watching the satellite images closely and am feeling nervous; the ice isn't melting fast as I'd like. We'll see if it happens as planned, or if I have to reschedule. Either way, I'll write up a trip report soon after I return, and the plan while I'm out there is to film videos explaining my gear and how I pack it - writing about it is just too painfully dry.
