Re: Crossing Canada

Ah the good ol' days, the days of the red river wagon, birch bark canoes sewn with spruce root and sealed with pine tar, and sunsets that stretched across the vastness of the prairie tableau. Paddle boys, paddle like your life depends on it 'cause if that cloud of black flies catches up it's all over with!

Re: Crossing Canada

For what it is worth a book "SAILING UPHILL" Author: Sam Mckinney, Publisher Horsdal & Schubart, chronicls one fellows adventure sailing accross the continent. He went up the Columbia & Snake then down the Missouri.
It did not sound like a lot of fun. In fact it took him 4 summers and 3 boats. The last one was, for good reason, a glorified raft that only drew 4 inches of water.
If you really want to cross by water, under your own steam , may I suggest a canoe or kayak? (and carry LOTS of bug spray!)
