    Google says its 5 hrs 36 mins from my new digs in Port Colborne.
    I dont buy that for a second. Maybe 7 hrs if I was lucky.
    I will be leaving the day before and camp somewhere close to the put in. Like KWK said,better to start fresh than arrive at the put -in burnt out and tired already.
    No signs,no fees,no rules,nobody. My kind of campsite.

    Very strange ... when I plotted the route originally (Google Maps) it estimated close to 7 hours driving time. Wasn't surprised since North Bay usually clocks in around 6 hours for me.

    Today, the same route shows as just shy of 5 hours. Traffic or construction impacted the estimate previously? Who knows. I find my car GPS is usually much more accurate in its estimated ETA.

    KWK ... if you used Google for the distance, it factors construction, ToD, speed allowance (most ppl don't go the speed limit), and likely traffic. So times will vary a lot, best option is to do the distance around the time and day you plan to travel.

    Ok, so I'm a dinosaur.
    Speaking of which, isn't that Richard's car in the parking lot?
    (Ah, sweet revenge.)

    Only had to pay a nickel a day for parking too, and we used to consider that parking lot crowded. Those were the days!

    Hey all,

    I can't believe how fast the summer went, but we're two weeks out and I was hoping if we could get a roll-call of everyone coming and when.

    I was talking with Jim at the Sportsman Lodge and he mentioned that he has a large "retreat" around the same time. It'd be helpful if he had a better idea of our numbers. BTW, I believe that the parking fee is $10/day with an additional $10 boat launch fee (yes, that includes canoes).

    If we do decide to do a group meal, it might make more sense to do it on the weekend after more folks have arrived. I can bring my pot, but maybe the marshmallows can bring the ingredients?

    I’m planning on pushing off Thursday around lunchtime. Planning to stay 3 nights. I can bring part of whatever is needed for a group meal.
    Don't let life get in the way of living.
