Squall Hoot, Hoot & Hoot
Four Squallions left for Lake Superior this morning to dip their paddles in the greatest inland sea on earth.

Give our friends at Naturally Superior Adventures a shout – they know her waters well. https://www.naturallysuperior.
This season we welcome the Cole Lake Cluckers, an upstart chick group that has already hit the top of the charts here in Carling. We’re not kidding – they are really good esp when Martha gets going on the drums. And nope, no drugs involved – c’mon out and see!

Tim’s Tip – Shove Off Bugs!
Yer in your tent with the sun going down over the sparkling waters of Georgian Bay – when to your horror, the tent is filling up with friggin’ bugs. Tumbling out of your sleeping bag, you discover rips in the tent screening with little nippers divebombing through for an evening feed. What to do? Well – you could duct tape the openings, but you’ll be sorry later cause it makes a mess and screws up future repairs. Take some “Aquaseal” (found at your local fairly friendly paddling shop) and dab it along the rip or hole. Done carefully, it will congeal quickly and stop the bugs in their tracks. If you were really god’s gift to camping, , you might also have some regular tape (not duct tape) in your kit and you can put some on the backside of the hole – making the application of the aquaseal go swimmingly well – peeling it off once it congeals. This takes all of ten minutes or less and you will have a bug free, beauty sleep.
Am I bugging you? Just hit reply and put “bug off tim” in the subject line and we will off you tout de suite
Thanks for listening folks – see you at the Franklin Challenge?!
