We have had two very productive meetings this last week. On Wednesday, the boys began planning their route. It will likely take a few meetings to finalize the route, but they made a big dent in it. It seems that they are considering two possible routes for our trip. One of which is a more traditional Voyageurs route, but the other will take us into some areas that are rarely traveled by Voyageurs crews. This could be very interesting and would allow us to resupply in a small Canadian village called Pauingassi rather than the normal resupply at Lake Sas. I am excited to see what the boys decide.
On Friday we were lucky enough to include Zak, one of two new crewmembers. We finally have a full crew and hopefully the final crewmember, Mo, will be able to get out to basecamp for our next meeting. Now that we have a full crew, we'll be able to go full speed ahead with preparations for the trip. In the coming meetings we are hoping to solidify our route, get out on the water and do some canoeing, and continue flipping and portaging.
Also, another reminder about the Parent Meeting on Wednesday, May 31st at 7:00. Please park in the driveway of Basecamp which will be off to your right as you approach the end of Pine Pt Rd.
Looking forward as always!
