Wabakimi - Northwest Wilderness Quest Part II

This trip is to be part of the Northwest Wilderness Quest by Ontario Parks. See https://www.ontarioparks.com/nwquest for complete information.
We have until October 15, 2019, to do a canoe trip for three or more nights in Quetico, Wabakimi and Woodland Caribou Ontario provincial parks.
Part one - Quetico is now complete. We had a great trip! An article in THE NASTWAGAN was published in the fall of 2017.
Part two - Wabakimi. We are now beginning to plan for a trip in the summer of 2018.
Part three - Woodland Caribou. A trip will be done there in the summer of 2019.

Specific details

It is intended that this Wabakimi route shall definitely involve some moving water and some whitewater. The length will likely be around 200 km. Including 4 days travel to and from Wabakimi, 10 to 12 days on the water (including possible layover days), the commitment would be about 16 days [2 weeks, 3 weekends]. Therefore it is likely that the rate of travel will likely average 20+ km/day. This will of course include portaging, and Wabakimi is more challenging than Quetico in that aspect.

The group will leave from southern Ontario/Toronto the weekend of either August 11th or 18th, depending on the groups decision, and finish about 16 days later.

The trip will likely begin and end in Armstrong, Ontario. Although when a specific outfitter is closen this may need to be slightly modified.
