Well you're allowed one case of beer or one fifth of liquor per person. If you need a half gallon of whiskey or two cases of beer for three days you may have a problem.

In all honesty it wasn't worth it. The colors weren't good. The trails were crap. It was freezing in my tent. And Canadians suck. Seriously, don't go. Ever.



I had a blast!

On top of that it was such a great group of people to hang out with!

I learned a ton too. Now I need to start working on my new list of stuff to have with me.

Oh, and share that list...

You don't want his list. He's going to be pulling a mini U-haul trailer next time.

All our pics are on my wife's computer & I'm too lazy to transfer them right now. I think the best pics my wife got had nothing to do with wheeling. We had stopped to discuss our next exploration options and people were milling around chatting and snacking. All of a sudden these two birds started diving at us. Someone threw a cheezit on top of a rig & one grabbed it. Pretty soon they were both diving down for snacks. Then Jeff puts one on his had and this wild bird, in the middle of the woods starts eating out of his hand. It was really cool.

After looking at our bird book, we have determined it is a Gray Jay.

Edit, just pulled these off her computer.

Thanks Kerry - Great Pictures!

I'm with Mike - I had the greatest time wheeling yet! What a stellar group of people to go with. I can't wait to meet up with everyone again. Thank you for letting us come along.

I also wanted to get out at night to have a beer with you and Mikey and the rest of the gang, but Life got in the way... Damn family...

Glad you guys had a great time, maybe next year... I am really thinking Snofari though...

I want to thank everyone for all they did to help each other out. Whether it was spotting, finding boards to plug the holes in the bridge or helping clear the trees that had fallen across the trail and had to be cut and dropped. Everyone pitched in whenever something needed to be done.
I had a great time and certainly looking forward to next year maybe even a spring run?
