Another two to three weeks … Lake Winnipeg to James Bay.

In another 2 to 3 weeks, I shall be off for another canoeing adventure, this time across Canada.  From Lake Winnipeg to James Bay -- either Fort Albany or Moose Factory.  If the crew and I decide upon Moose Factory, this will give me the opportunity to take the Ontario Northland train from Moosonee, make a connection to the Algoma Central train, and then to Saulte Sainte Marie, Ontario.  Cross 3 items off of the bucket list in this trip. 

Meanwhile, I have been making a list, crossing things off, and adding more items, for the trip.  This is exciting.  There is planning for another 60 - 65 days on the trail.

Another June, the beginning of another canoeing season.

Looking out over Lake Mendota, another season of canoeing has begun.  I've watched kayakers cross the lake next to my property, and, it looks as though they're having fun, despite the weather being as mercurial as it has been.  Even the wind of the other day failed to deter a determined kayaker or three.  I'm looking forward to getting out on the water myself within the next two or three weeks.  Also looking forward to having some new gear to review, which I shall post here.

I just got my first pair of Vibram "Five Fingers" shoes over the weekend while perusing Rutabaga.  So far, they seem to be working rather good.  I would recommend against wearing them in any workplace that contains tripping or slipping hazards, though.  So waiters or waitresses, avoid wearing these shoes at work -- wait until your time off.
