The 2013 Grey Owl’s Cabin Expedition
January 7, 2013
Jordon has posted about our planned expedition to Grey Owl’s Cabin on his blog. To be honest I wasn’t totally thrilled with the idea. A 40 km back country hike is well out of my comfort zone but as I checked out some video, read about other people’s hike and basically got over my own fear of the unknown, I started to get excited about the idea.
We are going up in mid-June with the idea of getting out there early and making camp at the Northend campground before pushing on to Grey Owl’s Cabin that afternoon. While it could be hot, I have full confidence in Kingsmere Lake providing all of the chill that I need to cool off and stay hydrated.
Now we need to get the gear for the trip and start getting in shape to handle the walk. Walking for 6-8 hours makes for a long day and of course for most of that time I am carrying a full pack. Here is description of the trip.
The good news is that I went out and bought some shorts, top, and even a new summer jacket. I may die on the trail but I will look good. I am looking forward to it. Who knows, maybe the Boreal Trail is in our future.
