Soon we will be heading off west-bound! Our gear is ready to go, the pups are enjoying the cool weather and looking forward to more adventures, our itinerary is set ( in pencil), the house-sitters are ready, and we will soon be packing up the GO.
We have plans to meet up with Kev and Andre from Skijor Oxford Dogs in Manitoba, and if things work out, we may be able to see Dawn in Minnesota, and Jessica ( from Seattle) in Banff! Our social media contacts have provided us with invaluable information and ideas, so we are sure that our adventure will be memorable. As in any long trip, there will be hiccups, but we will hold our breath, and get past them….our goal is to be safe, keep the dogs happy and active, and maybe even scout out some locations for trips in the future ( i.e. in the Boundary Waters and Algonquin).
If you check our page that keeps a journal of our preparations, you can see that we have had some great shake-down trips. We feel confident in the GO, and are ready to take it to some wonderful sites.
The last month has seen us hiking and paddling a lot…cooler weather mean foggy mornings on the water, and some chilly nights when camping. We went canoe camping for the 60% solar eclipse, and enjoyed the best few days of camping weather all season!
The loons chicks are huge! And fall colors are beginning to show on the hillsides!We have paddled a few new lakes, and have found a few gems…and continue to enjoy our local favorites.
When we return, we will continue paddling locally, and have a few short overnight trips planned. So off we go! We will be posting periodic updates on our Facebook and Instagram accounts, and hope you will enjoy following along with our adventures ( and misadventures)
