Philip Edward Island loop - and we are looking for a crew, are you interested?
SOON - 6 DAYS between Aug 23 to 30 2015. Dates to be confirmed with participants.
A flat-water trip, but open big water on Georgian Bay. Subject to wind and waves.
Kayakers welcome, but you have to carry your own stuff.
The first night, arrive and camp at George Lake campgrounds in Killarney Prov Park. We will start and finish at Chikanishing River access point. We are hoping to do the entire loop (weather permitting and have a built in rain/wind/layover day)? The one portage of 400 m appears to be optional.
Where - Philip Edward Island Loop. 70 km round trip divided by 5 days = 14 km a day. Lots of time to explore.
