... is when you can't go camping. Which is my sad excuse for not having touched this site in three months. My early Spring trip was a crazy one, featuring a missed portage that led to accidental rapids, an incredibly long and tiring first day of travel, two days of endless rain followed by two days of snow, and a ~13km portage along a logging road that was most definitely not part of the original plan. It was most definitely a memorable trip. If you haven't seen the videos, it's a two parter than can be found here and here.
I'm about to head into the park again. It's been a very wet Spring and early Summer, so I'm expecting sloppy portages and hordes of bugs. But I'm also expecting to have a wonderful time. I'll be spending two of my nights on lakes I've never camped on before (or been to, for that matter), so I get to add two new pins to my wall map as well!
I've added a second waterproof camera to my gear, so I'll have a camera mounted on the back of my kayak as well as in front of me - we'll see how that works out. Should be great on the water (will be able to turn it on and off via phone app), but I have visions of it getting knocked off repeatedly while portaging. I may have to remove it for the carries, although hopefully not as it would probably generate some nice portage footage as well.
