Report


Friday, June 07, 2013 Today our plan is to head south and stay on Fairy Lake. Again we wake to near glassy waters, if anything we happen to have a tail wind. We paddle south through Pappose, Niki, Wagosh and then hit one mother of a portage. I enjoy portaging however this one tested my belief. At 328 rods and double portaging we end up hiking a good 3 miles. It wasn't a difficult portage but long. After this one we were ready for camp on Fairy. Through Gun Lake and into Fairy we went. There are 2 camps on Fairy one did not look so great and the second was taken. We opted to leave Fairy and carry on to Boot. Boot seemed like a nice lake but at this point in our voyage we took the lazy route and decided to push on to Fourtown and spend our last 3 nights there.
