Bill, you are obviously a caring person to organize this trip. Many thanks. Please ignore 2dogtripper. It is not valid input. Your spell-challenged fan, Tess

ya, i thought it a strange kind of post. i am not sure of it's context whether it was intended to be fun or not. as for me, i am a great speller when in the right environment, but a crappy typist. and if i rush a reply, i miss some of the even obvious spelling errors, but like emailing, i never thought of forums to be "formal", hell i even rarely capitalize in emails (and obviously on forums) just to be casual. so, don't get paranoid of your spelling, and if you chose "hillbilly" as your psuedoname, i'd suspect that in fact, you are not...

Howdy yu'all. Well after 26 years in yankee land, That what we from the south call all northerner, I learned to spell and even speak Canadian well enough to get by. Spell, I never was much of a typist But I get by.

Swift,
Well you would be wrong. I am a real honest to good Hillbilly.Born in the mountains of West Virginia. That is where the Beverly Hillbillies were from. Iren Ryan, Granny, was from West Virginia. My avatar is a picture of a statue I bought more than 27 years ago in Wheeling , West Virginia. If you can find a map look and find a place called Orma, that's where I am from. It is in the middle of the state in Calhoun County, northeast of Charleston, the Capital.

Paul,
The one I know is because walking the sides of the hills causes one leg to be shorter than the other.

hillbilly, how long have you been coming to the Temagami area; just curious, since I grew up there, but haven't had sense enough to return as frequently as I would like.

Well as of now I have six pretty well confirmed and can only handle a max of 10. If you want in please get back to me ASAP. Remember there is no cost if you provide your own transportation and food. Except a small honorarium to Alex for his time.
Bill

Hey Brian,

Watchen tha show, Tha Great Outdoorsmen,
featuren "Les Carver" from N Bay Ontario.
Show was bout proper canoe camp portage technique.
Show was filmed in tha Old Growth Forest of
Temagami, on tha Snake River & other inner-connected lake routes. Very, very beautiful area.
Strong concernes bout Ontario's endangered 300 year old White Pine stands left & tha constant
battle go-en on to save tha "Old Growth".
Looked to be a must-see area. I'll hav to make new tracks when north-bound & drift a bit-more east, maybe 'tis up-cummen Autumn Fall & get
canoe & paddle blessed by Temagami Spirit Waters.
Might be great thrill to paddle along-side
"Grey Owls Beavers" & meet-up with talk friends.

Brian, who is that guy? Do U no him? & what bout
tha Snake River route? Looks to be canoeable, heya!

Canoebear, the name rings a bell, but can't place it. As for the Snake, well, that's as common as Loon and Beaver lakes. I don't know which one he covered.

Could they be talking about Snake lake and the White Bear Forest? It's really Snake Island Lake but who ever calls it that.
