I knew of canoetripping for a while but stumbled upon it again while researching solo canoes. Having moved- returned - from 30 years in midwest in 2019 and almost exclusively paddling BWCA and the Q, I found my canoe country canoe - Souris River Tranquility - does not seem as well suited to Adirondacks and New England water. Overnight in Five Ponds Wilderness and on the NCFT near Grand Falls, day trips on Chaumont River, Perch River, French Creek, and Crooked Creek, told me to look for a new canoe. More on that elsewhere on board later. I'm sure I'm acquainted with some here - either virtually or from Canoecopia, and look forward to learning, especially about river and stream paddling in contrast to the flatwater of BWCA and Q. Cheers!
