I am soon going to head in country for a few days. I am going to set up a wall tent with a wood stove and leave it in country. That way I can leave gear in and spend a bit more time in the backcountry which I truly love. I travel back in there by freighter canoe and walking. I use the canoe to get my camp in. One of the earlier pictures posted is of Duncan my Gordon in the canoe. There is nothing like laying under canvas with a with the sound and scent of a fire in the sheet metal stove while laying on a floor of balsam fir listening to wild geese on a frosty night
A few years ago before my daughter was born I used to camp alone for weeks on end often going in country in October and staying until freezeup at the end of November or early December. I would hunt birds and wait until I was ready to come out before shooting a moose or caribou.
Below is a picture of one of my camps from years ago.
No people but plenty of these
