Bushcraft Vault Pt.2: May 2013 Canoe Trip Algonquin Park


Another out of the vault. This time, Kyle and I spend a week canoeing in Ontario's Algonquin Park.

We battle extreme weather conditions, things don't go as planned, and we have an awesome time not in spite of, but because of it.

This video is on Kyles channel and has been there for 2 years, some of you might have seen it already.

so Joe and I are ready to start a canoe trip as you can see we're in the parking lot getting ready and uh it's uh it's snowing out here and just above freezing so this will be an interesting day so Joe what do you think of the Cunha show so far don't know I just arrived at our campsite for the evening done everything from snow to bright sunshine it's kind of miserable extremely miserly windy you look over here come a tarp yeah it's died down alright here we are on the beautiful second day of our may spring canoe camp and it's snow a couple centimeters and the waters choppy and if we fall in we'll probably die but we got a big port Hajj to do today we've got a big haul in the canoe today we're going on just saw it's a water taxi flag down he's gonna post a couple hours and he's gonna shuttle us over to the port our thing so if you don't have to deal with that it's not just Ostia Plus these feats legitimately scary and dangerous there's actually give a getting shuttled back and forth all the time I guess it's a comic thing for this link because it's so big that the Whitecaps really really hit so we're gonna have to do we're gonna we're gonna keep six o'clock right now we finally made it to a campsite we got buried over like we were saying that's the poritosh that's the port are two kilometer poritosh back and her stuff back again only to find that the the lake was even chop her than where we could come from no way we could Palin so we ended up waiting for two or three hours just at the port eyes just twiddling I thought was nothing to do I finally got to talk to some people and decide to try and make it we made it up to this island there's three campsites on this island it's a huge island and we're just kind of setting up it doesn't not supposed to rain that's Florence will be nicer so we're getting it so firewood and just set up for tonight things are looking up we were a little bit bummed out earlier but it's good Joe and I are here paddling on merchant Lake I just got done with a little 340 meter for Tosh and this is the first time we've been able to film it's been pretty terrible weather last few days but right now the weather awesome and the leaks is nice and smooth hopefully we'll get some fish tonight to be day four and join I've made about halfway up big trout lake there just has a rest date we're planning to do some fishing it's very windy outside and it's too choppy to try to fish and at the same time we're going to head into the woods and see if we can see something maybe something cool I concur

you give her a shot here we are on day five you just did a two kilometer poritosh back we're going back now still a couple days left but in order to do the portage you have to walk you three times once with our backpacks we once back to the canoe another time there's 160 kilometers burn up a little bit energy there we're just taking a break we're going to go through merchant Lake merchant and try to fish maybe a little a little controlling and then we're gonna blur Taj again a small small portage over to happy I'll camp on a half mile and I'll be up for today Julie I woke up early this morning of merchants lake and they completed a to clog reportage and paddle down Oh Bianco Lake where we're currently having our final evening and it was a beautiful night this is the first time we see this like without having Whitecaps it's quite nice this is the same Lake we had to take the water taxi up the first day so hopefully be a good night and then we'll get some good pictures of only some stars

this is beginning a day seven I've had a great trip to these our last day we've got an easy two to our paddle back to the car great end to a great trip


oh hi didn't see you there yeah Wednesday a stickler it's the beginning of day 4 it's Wednesday June I will wake up before we do this part that noise noise that's it that's wrapped
