Our fifth annual trip

Hi All,

My brother, my son, and I completed our fifth annual canoe trip in the north west corner of Algonquin the last week of August this year. 
I managed to turn our notes into a text and photo review: http://themasonfamily.ca/algonquin/summer-2019-trip.html

Another great trip!

Hi Sean!
How did your knee turn out?
And what exactly is that "packaged corn beef"? Sounds interesting.

There was no permanent damage to my knee.  I bruised the "patella" (knee-cap), and learned that bones can be bruised. (I didn't know that before Birchcliffe...)

I found the "Corned Beef" at a local "Freshco".  There was a large end-of-the-isle box of them on sale for $0.98 a month or so before our trip so I picked a few up since I believe it satisfies the "no cans or bottles" rule.  That was the first and last time I've ever seen it, though I've not searched too hard to find it again! https://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png

Here's a photo of the left-over package I still have:

Great TR thanks!  If that guy was doing 5+ carries into 3 Mile that is pretty crazy, it isn't like that would be his only portage.  Good to hear the knee healed up.
