Canoe Camping

That’s what I’ll be doing for the next 5 days. After that I’ll spend 3 days car-camping, and then 3 days staying with friends, just to run the full spectrum of possible accommodations. I’m not sure when I’ll have internet, but for sure, I’ll be out of touch for about a week.

Why is all this traveling happening?

The canoe camping is a family trip with Dana’s dad and stepmom. I’ve never canoe-camped before, and so there are a few things I’m feeling a little paranoid about:

  • leeches
  • tipping the canoe over
  • tipping the canoe over into a bed of leeches
  • acting like a baby after the canoe tips into a bed of leeches

But other than that, it’s great.

The rest of our journey (3 days camping in Niagara, and 3 days staying in Toronto) is because Dana’s speaking at his first conference! All his work at McGill has garnered him quite the fan club, and he’s the closing speaker of a 3 day conference, attended by sustainability-minded delegates sent from various universities in Canada. And then he’ll go back to his awesome job before starting another awesome job. Oh, to be a 20-something…

I’ll let you know how our travels go!

P.s. the cats do great things when they’re with their babysitter. Here’s a shot from last time:
