During the break between lock downs we went camping twice, first trip the window weirs at back were blocked rain just poured in!
Got them fixed and since it was going to drop in temp prior to next trip re-winterized the trailer; forgot to hookup a line from winterizing the trailer flood time next trip as soon as the water was turned on.
These are the moments we laugh about.
One time we went camping up north prep included everyone having a compass, whistle, map and survival kit. All agreed that no one was to go out alone or with out the kits. Trip was on the upper loop of the northern Ontario roads and north in on a logging corduroy road into the park. Kid brother wandered of on his own did not take his kit, compass that was not to come off around his neck, flashlight or other gear. Had lost my kid brother, nearest spot was James Bay pwr project. Not a place to loose someone. Land of many small lakes, swamp and floating bogs, 3 foot trees. We went to the nearest ranger post and told them only to find out that a park ranger had been lost in the bush for two weeks! He finally remembered what we had told him to do in emergency sat down made a lot of calling noises. It was getting dark when wes found him only 50 feet into the bush we had been getting ready to call mom and let her know he was lost. Said he wanted to get a start on or search for orchids got turned around and wandered around till he remembered what we told him.
Memories we still fondly talk about the trip as it all worked out.
P.S. they found the park ranger a couple of days later and he was ok though did look a little weathered. Found an orchid on the trip that was a once in lifetime find; will never get to see again as it is so hard to find and very rare my uncle got his name put in park records as the first person to find it in that park.
