HEAR!! HEAR!!

I thoroughly enjoyed reading that!!
I was once held up by a momma and her calf as they grazed right in front of a portage landing for about a half an hour or so. Tried banging paddles on the gunwales but all we got was a "I'm here eating right now" look that kept us at bay.
I can so relate to the realization about not driving myself so hard and taking more time to just enjoy the park.
When I turned 59 my tripping partner and I who was 61 decided to just try a "no effort" trip. We paddled in to Tim Lake on the river and just stayed on the island for 4 days, no portages, just an easy paddle in and out! We noodled around on the lake and the portages but basically we sat on the shore and relaxed and took in all the park would give us, it was very relaxing. 
Thanks so much for sharing that!!

Ah the old stomping on the wood injury. . . . . . .  yep you only do it once.
 

How many times do you do the "hmmm my hand is in a bad position as I'm using this saw, I better change positions TOO LATE" injury before you learn?  Asking for a friend.  Hoping the answer is also one.

Depends if you're ambidextrous!

You are too kind, Uppa, I really appreciate that offer.  I think I'm gonna pass on it though, I'll have my hands full on portages as it is.  

My plan is to dress for bugs, then later regret not taking you up on it, then writing a trip report that reminds everyone about your kind offer and my bullheadedness that declined your kind offer.  

I salute your self-awareness. .. . . . . . .  and your honesty!
