But now you do – and that's just the beginning.
Just imagine the adventures you'll have on your next trip!
Setting up your tent at 9pm because *someone* didn’t think to plan for the seemingly endless number of twists and turns on the Tim River and the gut-wrenching steepness of "Heart Attack Hill" portage is… no fun.
There's no need to go through that again though. Now both new and experienced canoeists alike can quickly and easily plan reasonable trips using the travel times printed on the map.
My map will get you where you want to go. That might not sound like much, but you'd sure notice if it didn't.
I should know. Playing 'find the missing campsite' one too many times is what pushed me to start making my maps.
My solution? What I haven't GPSed myself I've meticulously sourced from every trip log, forum post and GPS track I've been able to find, and from the hundreds of canoeists, kayakers and backpackers who've contributed their own experiences.
It's pouring rain. The sun's setting. The last thing you want to do is spend 5 minutes looking at the map.
That's why I spent over 6 months choosing, tweaking, and perfecting the colour scheme so the most important features like the portages, routes and campsites stick out, while all of the less critical elements fade away into the background until you're looking for them.
