Very impressive! Thank you for sharing as many of your trips were on the same rivers that our Derelict Canoe Club paddled over the past 35 years. There were only 6 Derelicts with several stand-ins (Honourary Derelicts) when one of the originals was unable to make it. Beginning in 1989, a trip report c/w photos and substantial quantities of BS was produced annually with a copy for each paddler. These serve as treasured memories of our trips together on the lakes and rivers of (mostly) northern Ontario. Over the past several years, our number of paddlers has decreased as one Derelict after another has retired. Last year there were only 2 of us and now I'm the only Derelict willing to keep paddling - I don't mind solo as long as I can find a decent remote, age-appropriate river.
Thanks again for sharing, it is good to know of other groups who have enjoyed paddling our many beautiful river systems. Stick with it!
