Great report, the video worked out well. I got a good laugh out of the term "snake wake" never heard that term used before. FRED

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked, the good fourtune to remember the ones do, and the eyesight to tell the differance.

A very nice trip report. Have been to all of that area and it was enjoyable to return with you. You tell your story very well, and I kept wishing there were more pictures. Thanks for a good report.

Thanks for the report. It was a good read and nice video. We did the Muskeg-Long Island portage in June and "ankle breaker" is an accurate description. We were going toward Long Island and spent several minutes looking around before deciding the beaver damn must be the portage landing:)

Liked your video! Good report. The site on Omega. Was it this one?

Thanks everyone who liked the video/report. Spartan2, with concentrating on the video this time, I did not get much for stills. Sorry!

Thanks, I really enjoyed your report, especially since I did virtually the same trip in 2012. It brought back a lot of good memories.

Good report. I'm heading to that same area in June and so I'm stoked. How ironic for you to see the elusive flying moose in its natural habitat. Thanks for sharing.
