I know that area. Near Marathon. I used to stay at Ney's Prov Park. A long time ago. I have often thought that a trip through that area by boat would be great but I don't think it will happen now. I spent four years in Thunder Bay.

I lived in Marathon for ~6 years. Then moved into the big city of Thunder Bay (actually, we live outside the city, past Chippewa Park). Neys is beautiful. Pic Island, Rossport... I started sailing when in Marathon, but before that we canoed and kayaked. I've paddled from Wawa to Marathon a few times, and now sail it as much as possible.

Don't know where your sailing takes you these days, but it's truly and undiscovered land up here (as you know). Come on back .

Why go fast, when you can go slow.

I sail the Bay of Fundy, St John River and the coast of Maine.
My wife spent much of her youth in White River. I interviewed with American Can when I graduated but decided to head for The Pas, Manitoba. Moved from The Pas to NFLD and then returned to my home province of NB. Retired now and spend about six months of the year sailing.
Is the Hoito still in business ? If so, I may come back.

Lake Superior, especially (not in the U.S., but near it) along the north shore.

Fundy must be a whole other world of sailing. Actually, we may be in your area in a couple of seasons. Our plan is to move on board this summer and start progressing towards the Atlantic. Next season is Lake Ontario, then out the St. Lawrence in 2015.

You bet. Hasn't changed a bit. Probably have the same plates and cutlery.
