Bloodvein River, Woodland Caribou Provincial Park - Need ONE more participant!

One member of our team of three canoes had to drop out due to a family illness issue. We would like to keep three complete tandem canoes. Otherwise, we will have one solo boat. Contact me, iori miller, if you wish more details. This is to be 'Part III' of the Northwest Wilderness Challenge by Ontario Parks for myself and some participants on this trip. The majority of our group will be traveling to Red Lake by train (with our own canoes) and shuttle from Washago. We will be traveling east to west, beginning at the Lund Lake access point of the Woodland Caribou Park (WCPP), then we will take 5 days to paddle to Artery Lake on the west side of the park. At that point we will leave WCPP (and Ontario!) and enter Atikaki Provincial Park (APP) and travel the Bloodvein River for 7 to 9 days (a Canadian Heritage River) all the way west to Lake Winnipeg. The entire trip is about 300 km. Participants on this trip need to be experienced in Wilderness canoeing, be fit, and be willing to participate in all aspects of the organization and preparation of the trip. You do not need to be an expert white water paddler, but you need to better than a 'beginner'. We will be returning from Winnipeg afterwards, also by Train. A lot of the planning is complete.
