paddeling 70 km both days.

Wow! :o

I know well the headwinds of the S. Sask. R.! Took me 2 days one spring to get from Saskatoon to Clarkboro Ferry in a solo canoe, just ~32km from the boathouse to the ferry.

That sounds about right. For my trip - The first day I had very strong headwinds. I only managed to get from Mewassin art gallery to the clarkaboo ferry and maybe another 3-4 km after that. And that was about 12 hours of paddling! The second day the winds were just as strong, but died down late in the afternoon. Even then, I only made it to batoche. At that point I was only 1/3 of the way, and almost called off the trip.

Well I pretty much have my trip planned out - both the date and the section. After looking into it more ive decided that i'm going to cut it in half(More enjoyable that way) and just do from Fort Saskatchewan, just outside of Edmonton to the highway 17 bridge on the Albert/Sask border. Hopeing to leave Saskatoon the evening of Friday May 19th, and start my paddle first thing the next morning. 300 km works out to about 37 km/day if i'm going for 8 days.

RGS,
That sounds like a do able plan! Water Levels should be good- but who knows. This has been a very strange wet, cool spring. 15cm of wet snow in Edmonton last weekend...

If there is anything i can assist with on this end, let me know!

I hope the water level is high, but if not, then that's not a terrible thing either. You said "this end", are you in Edmonton?
