June 7-9, 2024

The forecast was questionable (at best) but seven intrepid learn-to-trippers and two trip leaders took to Rock Lake, Algonquin Park for a weekend on an island. We lucked into two beautiful sites side by side, a perfect home for MANY tents and one hammock. The weather mostly held off, but we had a great opportunity to learn how to use various knots to put up a tarp or two - did you know a barrel makes a good footstool? (with a spotter, of course.) Everyone came home with a new trick or two, and we`re ready for the next adventure.
