Post subject:  Noire River Update: A new thunderbox!!!!

Hey folks,

I have been leading an annual 4 day September long weekend trip down the Noire for going on 7 years. A year ago, relaxing around the campfire at Manitou, the group decided to start to give back to the river that has provided us with so many wonderful memories.

As a result, as of this year, we installed our first thunderbox on the river. The thunderbox is located at approximately km 68, in the bush that lies behind a large sand bar. We chose this location given that huge downed tree with a root ball that lies on this beach. Over the years we have used this campsite a number of times and noticed others use it frequently as well, so due to its popularity...

As well, we had the opportunity to re-install the thunderbox at 50-50, as the hole was getting rather full:) The lads who filled that hole and redug the new one, received an extra ration of grog later that night!

We will be installing another next year, likely south of Hunt Club rapids, I will update accordingly.
