Re: Canadians - Help! Need winter wilderness cabin to rent.

Mark, Iím not going to tell you not to do this, but I will tell you to be prepared. Things for you to think about:

- food: lots of grains, bread, pasta, peanut butter - food is fuel for the body. Forget the salads.
- lots of mitts and socks. Not because they will get wet from the snow but because your body will expel moisture. Dry is warm, damp is cold. Change often when you go out and hang them up to dry when you get back to your accommodations.
- a good pair of polarized sun glasses.
- a willy warmer or 2.
- have a meet & greet with the local RCMP detachment when you arrive at your destination. If they know your plans, they will keep an eye out for you. They hate finding frozen bodies in the spring and many want any excuse to go snowmobiling and will check up on you. Also, if you travel to town, stop by the detachment during your stay, and say: ĎHi, Iím o.k.í
- donít put your tongue on cold metal. It will stay there.
- donít eat yellow snow.
- do make lots of snow angels.
- bring lots of ebooks.
- and to keep this thread sailing related; if you put your boat on the hard, make sure itís not at the far end of the yard. You'll want to head south immediately after your adventure.

Have fun and keep us posted,
Connie

P.S. Iím currently in Saskatchewan after travelling through Alaska, Yukon, NWT, and northern Alberta. Amazing wildlife - but itís the summertime - unfortunately most will be sleeping when you get here (except maybe the wolves and bison). Just checking off yet another item on my bucket list.

Skiing,& other outdoor winter sports,available in southern mountain areas can be more bone chilling than an average day in the north.
I think southerners should have ,n their bucket list,a week or two winter vacation in the north.

Re: Canadians - Help! Need winter wilderness cabin to rent.

One of the kayaking magazines recently ran an article by a guy who stayed in a remote cabin on Victoria Island BC. He said the cabin was attacked by bigfeet.

Now, I know you said you don't want to hurt animals, but I figure if you can find the magazine article and score the cabin, you'll get plenty of winter, plenty of remote, and one of the rarest animals of all. And, should you elect to bag one, you'll be rich and famous.
