Nothing blows my wilderness frame of mind like running into crowds in the backcountry, competing for campsites, finding human offal, crowded portages. I even experienced the "amusement park" atmosphere in Quetico last June. The floatilla on Moose lake and "take a number" portage trails were depressing. I know you have to go farther and harder, but I'd like to take my bride, and she can't handle the exhaustive portages anymore (we ain't spring chickens no mo although we keep pretty fit). Anyone got a good idea, possibly a river route with shore camping where people ain't an issue? Maybe an overlooked area in Ontario or Manitoba that doesn't require a fly in?
