Our First Session Campers Have Arrived!

Hello to you all!  We are off and running.  The bus arrived right on time and soon all were doing their first portage of the summer down the Jack Pine trail.  A hearty dinner of homemade mac and cheese was served.  It was amazing – plenty of seconds and thirds were seen being scooped onto…

One more update.

Just as I was shutting down my computer a SPOT came in from the Bay Trippers.  They are now at the mouth of the Moose River so they have completed their Bay paddle and will likely camp at Tidewater Provincial Park beginning tomorrow.  They catch the train home on Friday, amazing!  All for now, Woody
