Wow - that could have gone sour pretty badly... I am glad to hear it turned out even better than OK. Thanks for the story!

Two older guys stared at me and ignored my wave as I headed off.

The guys who had earlier gave me dirty looks were still down below. Maybe they just didn't like outsiders.

As I approached I got a wave from the window and the door opened up. The older gentleman invited me in, offered me drink and food and of course a phone to call my wife who was now in panic mode.

"We were gettin worried as you were still in da bush at dark"

Mr Fleury told me all about the good places to fish, trap, and talked about certain old logging roads that we both were familiar with down towards the Schyan (pronounced swyen I come to find out). I honestly for a moment felt like I was back home.

"Next time drop in and let us know where ya headin so we don't worry" " Swing out for some trout!"


Can't judge unknown books by what we perceive to be their covers, eh? :wink:

Beautiful photos, Lee. I especially liked the one of the road and the tree.

Erhard it had the possiability of suckin but I had enough supplies to keep warm. 2 days worth of food...but 50km in that chill woulda have sucked!!

Barbara you are beyond right. One of my character flaws is being slightly judgemental. And it's been a learned trait since moving to ontario unfortunately. This really opened my eye's and was an amasing thing to end my day with. In cases like this I love being wrong and humbled into growing into a better person!!

Awesome bunch of guys and a great community.

Really nice story. Were you familiar with that area already or was this a first visit for you?

Great story!...I have a quick lost keys story.

About a decade ago a group of us were winter camping on a lake in Algonquin. It was a cloudless night so a few of my friends decided to check out the stars from the middle of the lake. Upon return my buddy Johnny said he had lost his car keys . "you'll never find them in the snow"...He marched back and returned 10 minutes later, flashlight in hand and discovered them in the snow...

Now if I can only find that missing winning lottery ticket.
