go see paprika. you'll like it.

of course, I do have problems with the difference between dreams and reality.

films in toronto are $9.25cdn at this theatre, more at other first run theatres.

if you're paddling to James Bay...

(viewed 602 times)
you don't really need the helmets. I just liked the photo.

I should explain a bit.
my son, the bear, takes groups out on two week canoe trips. He is the canoe tripper. These are photos of the tripper den.

You need to take a few things, and make sure that everything important is waterproof, animalproof and portable. There are portages, places where you unload everything, and carry it over land to the next river or around a waterfall.

Canoes are light and you can carry one on your back easily. Food goes in the plastic barrels. On the shelf above are blackened cooking pots. A dutch oven is essential. On the left and on the floor are various tents. The top photo is packs to stuff everything into.

The big challenge is food. You eat the perishables first. Grains, spices, onions, garlic, potatoes, pancake mix, and pasta are all basic. Everything tastes good on a trip. You pray for sunny days and no wind. And because a canoe displaces very little water, you can go anywhere, even up the smallest creeks.

This July the trips are to James Bay, which is waaaaay up north. My only worry is enraged moose mothers. not kidding.
