Trip Introduction:
I finaly got out of that box. Now I'm just siting on the back of a chair with a stupid dog looking at me..

Report


I made it out of the box on Wednesday morning and now I'm sitting on the back of a chair. Waiting.

Lots going on around me but no one will look at me.

Oh! Here he comes. Yes! Some action. Out the door and wait, is that a car? I thought I was getting on the water. Great now I'm strapped to the tie downs on the canoe. I hope I don't ride like this.

Geez now I'm in the trunk and can't see anything.

Judging by the number of stops this trip leader must have forgot a lot of things.

Daylight! Packs and a canoe! This is it!

Why am I being strapped to the seat? Is this joker gonna sit on me, oh great I'm now a seat cousin. After a few hours of being sat on we made it to Nina Moose Lake. I think the paddler had beans for dinner.

Its nice to be able to stretch my straps.

I sleep under the canoe. Its raining off and on. Looks like they are packing up. Another lake maybe?

This time I get strapped to the thwart. much more comfortable way to ride.

After getting rained on I'm happy to be back where we started. I hope the next trip I take is longer!

Nina Moose
