+4 on the Platypus. I'll be honest in saying it's the only water filter I have any experience with, but I love it so much I don't think I would even consider trying something else.

I also switch to the desktop format when using the forum on my phone.

Another phone issue that I would love to see fixed is the ability to stay logged in between visits.

Bo may not need an answer, but I'd still be curious to hear people's response as I have been wondering this same thing.

No gear this year, but I did get a couple of outdoorsy books:
Beyond the Trees: A Journey Alone Across Canada's Arctic by Adam Shoalts
Man and Dog: Through the Newfoundland Wilderness by Justin Barbour

My wife also signed me up for a Winter Camping Workshop with Kevin Callan (https://www.yoursoutdoors.ca/event/1902/joys-winter-camping)

Misty?

Misty it is! You're up again Tripper.

If memory serves me right it is the tiny dot of land you can see just south-west of the campsite on the right.

It is neither McIntosh or Burntroot.

But I did paddle through McIntosh on the same day that the picture was taken...

It's not Parkside Bay. You are almost spot on for being West enough, but it's a fair bit North of there.

It's also not North River Lake. It's South-West of there.

Hero7 Black bundle at Costco is $369. Awesome deal!

That's what I picked up!

Also worth noting, if you are looking for a sturdy case for your equipment Nanuk currently has 50% off their cases for today. I'm hoping to get this one for my GoPro: https://www.hardcases.ca/collections/blackfriday/products/nanuk-904

I answered a similar question on Reddit the other day, here’s my (long) reply

https://www.reddit.com/r/canoecamping/comments/e0ixr8/goprovideo_accessories_for_while_canoe_camping/f8easgl/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app

That's exactly the kind of response I was hoping for! Thank you!

Out of curiosity, what memory card do you use?

I took advantage of a Black Friday sale and picked up a GoPro Hero 7 today.

For all of you GoPro users, what accessories have you found most helpful for filming back country trips?

Plus here as well. Even cheaper. Smaller and larger versions.

You will have to check shipping to see which is actually cheaper

Sorry and here too.

Thanks, Shawn. You are a much better investigator than I am. I think I'm too quick to suppose a .com address is an American company. I'm happy to now have Outdoors Oriented on my radar.

Reviving an old thread to see if anyone has new wisdom or products to share.

The only place I'm finding the Eureka NoBugZone is on Amazon (https://www.amazon.ca/Eureka-NoBugZone-Attached-Mesh-Tarp/dp/B06XPKN1FS) and I'm not sure I want to spend over $200 for a bug shelter.
