Excerpt from KANOE TRIPPERS Adventure Journal:

'It isn't often that we get an opportunity to relive our life experiences from a previous time and place. This canoe trip gave me that chance. '


Peter Croal and I worked together as Canoe Rangers for the Ontario MNR in the early 1970's. We lost touch with other for a period of time when family responsibilities and employment opportunities sent us down different paths. We reconnected several years ago and we've stayed in touch since, through emails and dinners at each others homes. 

It's 36 years later now and we've embarked on a one week canoe trip to rekindle an old friendship and to resurrect the memories we each have from those seasons spent working and paddling together in Algonquin PP.
