The winter symposium was so awesome Dave. Wish I could go down again but I'm in the boat of Peterborough-ish folks.

Springs only a few weeks away....right? And weeks are just days. Days are just hours, hours minutes, minutes seconds. So basically ice out is only seconds away?

Well we have something just as exciting as ice out for you to look forward to.

Ice was in, I was there. I find I can always learn something by chatting up people during the breaks too. Now back to maps and sorting out gear lol.

I should add it's a nicely organized talk with great theatre venue. If anyone is on the fence about it try to attend in the future. Lots of door prize draws if you need some honey on top.(and yes the custom curvy canoe yoke I won fit's my wife's shoulders perfectly so I don't have to portage the canoe anymore. A thoughtful gift :)
