In a few days, I’ll be there. A river in northern Maine. A remote campsite, only accessible by water. But in those few remaining days, there’s lots of work to be done. Today, it was varnishing a new dutch oven wannigan and canoe chair. Tomorrow it will be putting several coats of shellac on my 20? wood canvas canoe. There will be several days of provisioning and packing for the trip. Canoe poles need to be oiled. Knots need to be reviewed. Tools sharpened. But in a few days our crew will hit the water. The Bushcraft Canoe Expedition Semester is a solid month of canoe travel in northern Maine. There will be lots of paddling, poling, fishing, and enjoying the experience. Look for more journals when we get back to town, and a few more before we go.
