Hi Barry,

Been looking for that type of cord myself. Acquired the cordage after buying a canoe from Swift off of highway 11 in 2019. Swift provided the same "ancient tarp cord" so I could tie down my canoe. Still have all the cords. It's great stuff, but I too haven't been able to find and buy... I've been looking for quite sometime. If I ever find a retailer I'll let you know. 

Good luck!

Hope you have an awesome trip MooseWhizzer Dave!

Option #1 is a really nice route in my humble opinion. In June 2021 the campsite on Little Misty was covered in goose poo along with turds from many other animals. Never seen so much scat in one area in my entire life and I'm an old man! The Little Misty site also had 4 of those Ontario Provincial Park firepit grates... the really heavy grates/grill with legs. Still not sure how that single site acquired four of those grills/grates? Can't imagine anyone transporting those grates in a canoe and portaging with them.. those grates/grills are heavy.

Anyways, if I were to do that loop again I'd stay on Misty instead of Little Misty. There are a few really nice campsites on Misty Lake. Last August I stayed on the Misty Lake campsite that Trippythings reviewed and camped on... great campsite in August! Usually I like having the only campsite on the lake but Little Misty I wouldn't do again. Think you've made a good decision to stay on Misty.

Have fun!

Thank you all for your suggestions. I took the Nipissing up to Luckless. Luckless portage is very nice and easy as mentioned! Next day took Catfish then the Pet to Burntroot for a night on Robinson. After a night at Robinson went to Whisky Jack, Remona then down the Nip to Cedar. I got to Luckless via the Nipissing faster then I usually get to Catfish from the Pet. Thanks again for your advice and for many of you, thank you for your great video work!

The Petawawa or the Nipissing River to Luckless Lake from Cedar? Travel will be in a 15 foot solo canoe. A double blade/kayak paddle can be used. Expect to single carry the portages. I'll be travelling alone.

Up the Petawawa River, walk the 2345m unicorn hill portage, which I 've done a few times before, or, go up the Nipissing River to the 2960m portage into Luckless? The total portage distances are almost the same to Luckless no matter which river is taken. 

I wonder if the current on the Nipissing will be strong going upstream? I've only come down this section of the river... never went up the Nipissing from Cedar lake. Been up the Petawawa from Cedar to Catfish a few times.

Any suggestions, advice? 

Thanks in advance, Dwight

Hi Lenny,

I made it down to the boat launch 3 weeks ago in my Hyundai Accent. Last fall and spring I couldn’t drive the road as it was too rough for my vehicle.

Good luck!
