Strong Old Man Paddling – Canoe Expedition Ep # 7


Here we go, a tight fit at the hole-in-the-wall just outside of Perry sound Holding on to my phone Really solid right now because not even a week ago. I went to put my phone back in my bag and fumbled out of my hands and sunk to the bottom of Georgian Bay I guess 30 feet down. I went diving for it, but couldn’t find it cause it’s too dark So I spent three days under there and I found a guy who was willing to go for a dive and search for it Based on my GPS coordinates just from judging it winging it and he ended up finding it about 75 feet from where I dropped a pin on a Google map and It’s still working. It was inside this case, but amazingly the phone, no water damaged the waterproof case worked I’m filming this on it right now So I’m stoked Day 31 of roots of change Here we are in Georgian Bay where exactly are we Tiit? Where I’ve Byng inlet at the headquarters of Sea and Rescue in case we have a problem How’s the paddling going so far. Handling is good he is nice today no winds yesterday. No rain Life is wonderful except for the two mosquitos Just the two I think yesterday we paddled about 40 kilometers. Is that right? I think this is a good mileage yesterday continued I Think that might just happen we have really good conditions looking coming our way We’re here just south of the French River That’s blowing towards us and rowing right into this. Could lead to some interesting weather Possible some thunderstorms. Thankfully we have some protected land ahead of us for the next 5K It’s day 34 Routes of Change And we’re in Killarney we made it from Killbear park to Kllarney in Less than four days. How many kilometers is that? Well, I figured it was pretty close to 140 165 kilometers of actual paddling and that’s how that was with a senior citizens cruise, but Markus made a little different, I think. I made it different you were the one who was pushing us. Well, I’m on a schedule Story of my life. But we’re two days ahead of schedule Tiit Excellent Marcus. Excellent. I’m gonna cut your five years down to four now Perfect. Yeah I was I was definitely a bit concerned about this stretch of water coming up Georgian Bay from Perry sound to Killarney here because there’s a lot of open water, but The weather coordinated quite well, and we had the first really windy day that sort of prevented us from going much farther but Well, the windy days made life exciting, but but it worked all out for the best I think Yeah, good weather and good craftsmanship and series by the navigator, Markus. Oh, stop it! Yeah, no, that’s great. Oh, it’s great you, uh Well, I’m performed admirably. Well, thank you. Well, I mean I must say like you Paddled for longer hours and more kilometers a day than anybody else previous. You out paddle Rein, Jeremy and Dave Wow, what a compliment And I wasn’t even trying That was great journey. Thank you. It’s been a pleasure. Thank you. I just said goodbye to Tiit. Who’s 74 years old and he paddled extremely extremely well Probably made the most kilometers a day paddling with him. Just we just wanted to give her This is wonderful And paddled through some of the most beautiful country actually Georgian Bay. I never knew how beautiful I was just amazing rock granite islands covered with lichens and just unbelievable campsites with nobody around Yeah, I’m stoked My last night was to row throughout the night but on a boat one in the morning the wind Picked up and the waves picked up and the visibility got poor then I started seeing sea monsters
