Now that the season is over I offer these videos
to tide you over until the ice melts next spring. These videos are the other end of the spectrum form Back Country Angling Ontario. We eat a lot, do not run whitewater, sleep in tents etc.

Watched the Black Lake video.

Man that's what I call base camping in style.  Smiley

  I liked the Double Paddles and EVERYONE wearing their PFD while on the water.  Smiley

A good example for paddlers who hope to NEVER use that emergency communications gear you guy's had.

  I didn't see any napping hammocks? Maybe for the best after what happened to me on my FUBAR trip.  Wink Grin Grin

I just watched your Pizza Night video.
You cook things much like I do.

  When you made that camp bread and used the oiled spoon to flatten your bread dough out I thought I was looking in the mirror.  Wink Grin Grin

I make the dough almost the same way but instead of the flour, I use this Irish Soda Bread mix they sell at my local Aldi's. It calls for milk so I add some of that dried milk and also some different spice packets I bring so I can have Garlic/Pizza or my favorite Dill.
Sometimes I'll add some Lipton Onion soup/dip mix which makes a great onion bread.

The soda bread mix rises nicely too. I thoroughly enjoy seeing how others do some of the same things I do but with a different twist.

I learn a lot watching other's successes and failures too.  Embarrassed Grin Grin

I'm hungry for some of that camp food too. I think I might need to make some of that camp/fry pan bread this weekend.  Wink Grin Grin

It is always nice to learn something new to try out on a canoe trip. One of my partners noted near the end of our trip that no directions on the package were followed.

My favorite relaxation position is against a propped up rock slab with a  Crazy Creek chair for padding. With a waterside view of course.

I want to compliment you Marten on those excellent videos. I just finished watching them all.

My favorite was the slideshow featuring the melodic piano music. My least favorite that you had cautioned about was that plane video.

  I usually like aerial videos and did enjoy the scenery and how you highlighted in red major landmarks. I only made it about 2/3's thru and couldn't watch anymore.  Huh

  I realized as soon as the slideshow with music came on what my problem was. It was the monotone drone of that bush plane engine.  Wink Grin Grin

The few times I've flown in bush plane's I put earplugs in unless the pilot was talking about something.
 
Maybe I'll find some soothing piano music and re-watch the aerial with the sound off.  Wink Grin Grin

  All in all, it was well worth my time to watch your excellent work! I doubt I'll ever have the patience to film like that, but if that changes, I'd like to know what you used to film with?

You did good  if you made it through that much video. The flight videos are usually over done but my reason for this one was for those doing research and wanting to know what the forest cover looks like along an intended route. There have been lot of fires in the boreal the last few years but the ones in Atikaki have not been total burnouts of large areas.

My camera is a little Panasonic Lumix ZS100. It fits in a shirt pocket, has a big sensor for better images, enough telephoto power for getting wildlife and more bells and whistles than you can imagine. I use the camera a lot so have practiced using a lot of the features.

On a sad note I learned this morning that our pilot Jonathon was killed in Oct. when that plane crashed on Family Lake on the Berens River. Still a little numb from that news. He has flown us for years in that plane.

That's terrible news about that pilot. I know those planes have a very good safety record but bad things happen when you fly low and don't have to room to recover if something goes bad.

Thanks for the info on what camera you use.
Are those videos all on one memory card or do you use multiple ones?

The camera is supposed to handle 64 gig cards but I find I have a hard time reviewing shots after about 30gigs so I switch. Total trip was about 50 gig on the cards.

The reports first said the plane hit a tree but that was wrong. Now they say it was a mid-air breakup.

Thanks for the camera info.

A mid-air breakup is a terrible thing. I'm sure there will be a lot of questions asked about the age/maintenance on that plane. Being a family business that has to be extremely painful.

Marten,

Terrible news about Johnathon being killed this past October.  He flew in two groups of Boy Scouts for a two week high adventure trip we did to Atikaki Park back in July 2016.  He was an experienced pilot, a good pilot, and a nice guy.

The picture is Johnathon along with my son.

Dave
