I went to Service Ontario center in Sturgeon Falls for a Chiniguichi Crown Land Permit and was told to drive back to North Bay as they hadnt gotten any. Aargh.
Just dont be tempted by the above post that mentions free. Its not if you are not a Canadian citizen.
I read the below link and am shaking my head. Always tie your boat at at least two points. I bring mine way out of the water..a hundred feet or so and stash behind some trees. And tie off bow and stern. There is nothing like putting all the tension at one end..to pull off handles or sent a boat pinwheeling.
I had some wild weather on Georgian Bay/French River area this year. GB is very low and those sneak inside passages are solid land or at least not connected by water..Ergo I was forced into the Bay proper.
All of a sudden those two Bustard Island Lighthouses were in front of me. I was still a little northeast of them but so close I went out and had a gander.
Thanks for all the input. We wound up paddling the Mink, McCoy and Franklin Islands:
This trip (see link) isn't for everyone, mainly because there are no official campsites on any of these remote wilderness islands. The east shore of GB is probably a better choice for most paddlers. I've paddled the French and Pickeral Rivers, but there's nothing like big open water to get your thrills.
