The Great Canadian Experience

I've been silent on my blog for a few weeks - I apologize. But I have a really good excuse: I've been working on several house projects (posts to come later) and fishing in Canada for a week.

Each year my family travels to Canada for a week of extreme fishing and camping, and we've done so since I've been around 5 or 6 years old. 

While Canada is "old hat" to us, many of our family and friends don't quit understand the allure of driving 16 hours to a nearly inaccessible lake to camp without electricity, running water, toilets, or a nearby medical center. Not to mention the fact that there are regularly bear scavenging in camp, and a aborigine reservation that is notorious for swarthy activities is located nearby. 

I guess you just have to experience it for yourself.

Experience what, you ask? 

The fishing...

Mom is eating a beef stick and setting the hook - that's several years of experience right there!
 The primitive camping...

Drying your only set of clothing over a fire after two days of rain...

Cooking walleye you caught only hours before over an open fire...

Heading back out to the lake after a nap, to haul in a monster Northern Pike...

Enjoy the natural experience while fishing...

Chopping firewood from downed trees...

Seeing a beautiful, one-of-a-kind Canadian sunset at 11 p.m....
