“Backpacking” … not so much.
things that went wrong:
Sat. Morn. : let’s go backpacking in Takkakaw falls today (it’s a 5.5 hr drive)
-packed in a hurry
-had to pick up stuff from MEC that we were missing
Sat. Aft. :
-didn’t leave until 2:30pm
-didn’t get there until 8pm
-the area where we were going to camp was closed
-the other area was way too far away for starting hiking at 8pm
-realized we forgot our pots and pans and coffee perc.
Sat. Night :
– our sleeping bags were rated for 5 degrees C but the temp. went down to 1 degree C
– Jeremy’s mat kept deflating
– it rained off and on all night
Things that went right:
-throwing rocks in the river is always right
-it was Beautiful!
-we met Antoine who let us use his pots and pans
-we also met Mel and Andrew who were biking across Canada. Very fun people.
check your list twice and don’t leave too late.
