    Ha! a canoe tripper is someone who goes on multi day backcountry camping trips via canoe, usually carrying the boat from lake to lake. Often involving whitewater. Most people go for 3 to 7 days, but its totally common to go for much longer, up to a month or more at a time.

    Many people call it “portaging” but lots of us don’t like that name it represents the slog of carrying a canoe and pack over land, not a true representation of why we do it............... beer, fishing and good times.

    Always bring your favourite creature comforts and enjoy yourselves out there

    Hello from the Heartland, thanks for sending Pamela Anderson, Rachel McAdams, Dan Akroyd are way... but could you take back Justin Bieber?

    Looking forward to what you can bring to the conversation

    Welcome from Florida.
    When we lived in South Florida, we were very used to seeing cars with Canadian license plates, and getting Canadian coins in our change from stores.

    I first read it as you are a canoe tipper, figured that was a Canadian thing.

    Welcome to PF
    I'll be done when I'm finished, if that's not fast enough, take a number please.

    It’s very much a Canadian thing, it’s really a throw back to our routes in the northern frontier.

    Okay, who am I to judge? I once tripped over my own feet after being over-served.

    But it begs the question, how clumsy do you have to get to trip over a canoe? Is that a canook thing, like always apologizing?

    Well, welcome anyway.

    BTW, I need a good solid boat to smuggle some sharpening stones, a few buckets of Candiru and pallet of antibiotics to Brazil. These are for personal use, yeah, yeah, personal...
