broken through n the swamps a few times myself. Now I always carry dry socks and two plastic bags to put my feet in. Of course a change of clothes at the car on day trips.

Well, the trip was a success. All lessons learned. You could always just leave your extra stuff in the car. You, just in case. Haven't heard of one of the Eastmen poles splitting before. Now I know I have to be prepared for that. See I learnt something from you. My socks slid off all the time. But I buy cheap socks. I always take a small MSR stove with me. Just incase I can't light the stove, too late to get wood or one of the other reasons.mi still can have hot food and drink. It even warms the tent up a bit. I look forward to your next trip report.

Old guide is correct.

Don't push your knee too much. May only be able to replace it twice like a hip.

Save your money on the Snowdog.  This trip was very physical. We're all 60 yo or better. I'm not in the best shape and this sure took it's toll physically. Nursing injuries doesn't help with fitness level. I have had back problems and the last mth it has gotten worse. When we got into camp I was unable to straighten up. I was like that the next day too. They guys were thinking they were going to have to pull me out on a toboggan. No way that was going to happen. Boy I sure wished I had brought my Tundra. I was disappointed that I didn't get to explore the area. Map and compass into another lake check out some of the skidder trails and animal tracks. The trip is always rewardable once home home.

Great report and learning experence. I've given up on all these blow up mats. I went back to my original 20 yr old Thermarest and Ridgerest. Got to love our dogs. Don't think mine would survive winter camping.

Wow, that was some wolf scene, yikes!   Thanks for sharing.  I know my recent trip was a 2 out of a 10 compared to your trip.  I can understand wanting to use snowmobiles now.     Interesting about that stream and rubber boots.  thanks again.

Naw..all trips are a 10/10.

Yes I have used the pressed logs a number of times. All the stove pipes and stuff pack in my kni Co stove. Although it would have been nice I have to keep the weight down while hauling. Got to still cut out gear and I didn't bring a cot.
I did use the pressed logs at Algonquin last weekend when I turned in for the night. It was car camping though.

13 HP you better hope your riding on an 1 1/2 crust. These are not going to get you through snow over your knees. He even said pulling a load it slips. You won't be able to jump pressure cracks like we have to on Simcoe. Watch how fast ppl get tendonitis from constantly pulling on there arms. These things really have their limitations. A used snowmobile is way better value. Actually the very first skidoo was a motor on tracks with handlebars that pulled you in a sled. Advancements have brought us a long way. They are really marketing them here but ppl aren't keeping them long. They are showing up on kijiji.

We spent one night in each. Each has it's points and how you have it set up. There is a reason I own a Snowtrekker.

Great pictures of your adventure. Very similar land form to here in Ont. Seems your winter is not cooperating either.
