Just managed to get a few pictures of the trip up for viewing if anyone is interested. Start down in in the middle of row 4. Before that is not really Thelon.

It's a wonderous place the Barrens and the Thelon in particular.
cheers, Ted

I've posted this link before, but here are some more photos of the Thelon if anyone's interested
Have to agree with TT, the barrenlands are wonderous and the Thelon is a special place within a special place.

Post subject:  Oh sure, make me look again

It was your damned pictures and report that got me interested in the first place. Thanks a bunch :clap:

A marvelous place indeed.

Seems we all have stories to tell of a certain outfitter up there, but in the end, it was a great trip, everything worked out, and I would probably do business with him again if he manages to keep the place going.

But Air Tindi is the best. The lady that runs it is great and very helpful.

Yes we were lucky, but if you remember it was darn cold those first 3-4 days in mid/late June of 2004.
Maybe Ted does not know about the bugs all being on one side of the river only. Maybe we should have told him about that phenomenon. A little like the Muskoxen that are suppose to be only river left. Nah…. Let’s keep it our secret. Those poor flies have to have something to feed on. :wink:

For anybody who has visited or plans to visit the Hornby cabin and gravesites on the Thelon River:

There will a presentation by Margaret Vokes, the daughter of Hal Wilson, about her father's northern travels. He was the leader of the party of four in two canoes who on July 21, 1928 found the Hornby cabin and the bodies.

They had started at Fort McMurray June 1 on a Hudson Bay shallow draft paddle wheel steamer and took to their canoes at Ft Smith on June 5. They reached Baker Lake on August 4th where they were fortunate to meet a supply schooner.

Come to the Feb 8 & 9th Toronto Symposium to see and hear more. :roll:

A shameless plug. :oops:

yeah.. thanks.. I thought it was me...

nice pix...

a question..

is this from 2007 or 2005?

next question - one of the pix shows TWO canoes on a plane.

On more than one occasion. we have been told that there can only be one canoe on one pontoon per plane..

does anyone know the truth to this? sorry didn't mean to hijack the thread.
