I have been posting video from a big loop I did in Wabakimi in 2017 for all of you who need a little canoe fix. Maps and everything included. There will be 2 more parts in the coming week or two.

Really cool! Good video quality -- I'm going to stretch out my viewing to last me a week or more. One question: where did you get your canoe skirt? Seems handy.

I made the skirts. I usually only put them on when it seems like it will rain all day and I don't have too many portages. It does OK with waves coming over the bow, but since it isn't full coverage it doesn't shed quartering waves that come over the side.

Very nicely done videos, thanks for posting. They really make me miss Wabakimi.

Well that got the endorphins going!

Thanks for helping to scratch that itch...

Thanks everyone. Here is Part 4. I know I said there would be 2 more parts before, but it looks like there will be 6 total, so 2 more after this one.

In part 4, I make my way south on Kenoji Lake and find a good campsite near the Ogoki River inflow. The next day I make my way up the series of portages on the Ogoki River to Wabakimi Lake, then find a good camp on Lower Wabakimi Lake. Realizing I still have plenty of time on this trip, I take it easy and travel downstream a short distance from Lower Wabakimi Lake and find another wonderful campsite with great fishing from shore.

OK, just one more episode in my Wabakimi video. This time I travel downstream of Lower Wabakimi Lake to Smoothrock Lake to complete my loop and head on east to Caribou and finally Little Caribou Lake to finish the trip. Enjoy!

Thank you for your very well-done video of your solo trip in Wabakimi! We pretty much binge watched, once we saw Part 1! Thanks!

Just finished the the whole series, thanks again. And thanks for letting the scenery stand out, with just the right amount of narration.
