Cool pics cifex
That's just north of Toronto?

Maybe one of these years I'll check it out since I live in Winnipeg which isn't too far.

Here are mine from Manitoba this summer:











This is the island in the middle of the lake we camped on.


Best fireplace ever



These are my favorite memories from this summer.

What is ironic is that when I go solo, I usually have a better time anyway.

I almost always run into like minded people in the back country and have shared plenty a campsite, dinner and and bottle of Jack with strangers turned into new friends. Most of the time when I take a friend who is a "weekend warrior" they are a pain in the ass. They whine and bitch about everything and I end up catering to their needs.

Agreed, 100%!!!! My friends are fascinated at the fact that I'll pack-up my car for a weekend and just drive up to New England or Fly out west on my own. Like wolf said, the people you meet there are new friends, for sure. Group trips are fun, but a pain in the ass to organize, get committments, and satisfy everyone. Solo trips are just awesome!

Yup, West (Tobermory), East (Killbear) and North (Killarney) of the Georgian Bay offer spectacular camping/backcountry that you should checkout.. Maybe we'll do a adventurer-exchange program where you come here and I'll go to Winnipeg haha

Did she say Strap-in or Strap-on?
