This past summer my regular canoe mate, Andy Baxter, and I took on Algonquin’s Meanest Link - a full circle the park. It took 16 days, covered 350 kilometers (220 miles), 55 lakes, 6 rivers (3 that had to be paddled upstream), and 93 portages adding up to 68 kilometers (42 miles).
People keep asking where my next road trip will be. I’m planning for a drive out to New Brunswick in early September, and then back home around Quebec’s Gaspé peninsula, but when I mention this, those people who ask look disappointed.It’s clear the Gaspé isn’t far enough away for them.
I have travelled now through 70 countries, give or take. I have my favorites - Tibet, the Greek Islands, Thailand - but really I’d go back to any of them. For me, there’s a wonder in it. The kind of wonder I’ve all but lost in my ‘real’ life.
