    2. Petawawa Whitewater Canoe Trip, Algonquin Park

    Aug 28, 29, 30 & 32, 2003: My brother and I are going to be on the beautiful Petawawa River inside the northern wilderness section of Algonquin Park. It is a challenging and extremely scenic fast moving river that sports the famous Big & Little Thompson Rapids, the Natch, Roll-away and Crooked Chutes. Fishing is good, the campsites are great, and the scenary is better (Tom Thompson did a lot of his famous paintings from this area). All in all, it is one of the best canoe trips I've been on. The last time, I went with Dave Turner and Les Wilcox and we had a ball, a million laughs.

    It is short, only 30 miles from Traverse Lake to McManus Lake and can be paddled in three days, but we're adding a fourth just to make sure.

    If you wish to join us, let me know.

    I've put a reservation on 2 whitewater tandem canoes for rent at the Wildrock Outfitters in Peterborough for those who need a canoe, so let me know soon before I'll have to cancel them.

    This is the Ontario Open Canoe Slalom Championships and it is held at the Minden Whitewater Preserve.

    I'll be there, working as a volunteer - gate judge and/or race starter.

    If you wish to come up on one or both days to be a spectator, volunteer or competitor, let me know and we'll arrange to get together up there.
