One of the big things I think paddlers find daunting when considering going to a far North place like Wabakimi and WCPP is maps and information. Hard to plan a trip without resources to do so and some guidance during the process. In the past few years mapping, route mapping, and just overall information on Wabakimi has increased exponentially. Two of these sources are joining together for an overall stronger resource.
Figured I’d post this in case anyone is interested. Ryan Hines
