Who is going? Becky Mason will present on Woodland Caribou Provincial Park.. The program all four days looks great! Lots of opportunities to see and paddle wooden canoes.

I'll be there, camping across the lake at the point with a few Boston Chapter guys. looks like some good presentations, saw one about 'Swimming with your Pal, The canoe", not sure what it's all about but looks like my new go-pro will get some use!!!
Becky Mason, Hap Wilson, and seat caining with Pam Wedd, those are on my list, plus a sawmill demonstration by folks from the college.
See ya there.

G nite from the Assembly. Robins across the lake camped out on the point sans wifi.. Peaceful. I am in the dorm facing his campsite but with wifi..

Though the skeeters are out, he is probably in the better place..

Today was canvassing Cronje's Chestnut.. Tomorrow seat caning and a morning excursion on the water.

So sorry Kim! I guess the rest of us will have to pick up the slack with trip reports around here for a while, give you some entertainment. You now have an excuse to buy some really light canoes.

Not good and dam scary Kim but am glad to see that you up to do a little walking. That's a good sign all things considered.
Being able to do some walking the very next day just shows how robust you are.
All be best - get well soon.
I see some calm weather quiet paddling in your future but no stress and that's an order!

Kim,

My best wishes and prayers for your complete recovery. It's a blessing that you were fairly close to a top cardio unit.

I don't think Gavia was asking about the type of metal, but rather what you meant by having some metal. Was it a balloon angioplasty and metallic stent insertion?
