I am considering moving to Cochrane Ontario in the summer of 2024.

I am thinking of starting a small canoe/gear/Communication Devices rental,, trip shuttles, trip planning, etc.and association with Cochrane Air Services.

I am in the stage of gathering information and wondering what kind of interest there might be in this.
I ran a trap line in 1979/80, which included a large section of the Onakawana River, just south of Moose River Crossing.
I worked for Natural Resources in the late 70's on lake surveys and have been into most waterway systems and drew many of the original lake contour maps, including Lake Abitbi, Yesterday, Today, tomorrow, Kesogami, etc.
In addition, I have canoed a number of the rivers including the first documented descent (for Cochrane District MNR) of the Little Abitibi River from Pierre Lake to the Abitibi R.

This information was used in the formation of the Little Abitibi River Provincial Park.

I am also an ORCKA and Paddle Canada Instructor, Wilderness First responder and and would offer instruction clinics and/ or Certification courses,

I would be interested in hearing from you, if you would support something like this and if it would be of value?

Any suggestions would be most welcome.

6 of us are planning a trip down the Moisie River this August 2021.
I would love to talk to anyone who has run this river in recent years.
We might include another canoe pair if they were experienced white water paddlers.

Best water shoe ever and near impossible to find this side of the border. Super grippy soles make for secure footing on hard wet surfaces while scouting while lug-like features give traction in soft soil for portaging. Laces up to stay on despite the best mud-sucking efforts of the boggiest portage. Fine mesh keeps out pebbles and sand while drainage holes allow water to flow out quickly. Step down heels allow you to shuffle in and out of your pants while keeping your feet clean and off the ground. Soft sole cushions sharp rocks. Shoe interior is designed for sockless comfort.

Size 8 men's (EU 41) - brand new.

Before I pay to ship them back to Ottawa for a refund (size too small), is there anyone around the Hamilton area who would like them? I have until mid-August to return them.
