The Backcountry Toddler

Wondering about taking your toddler into the backcountry?  Check out this video of 2 year old Grace on a 12 day canoe trip in the interior of Algonquin Provincial Park.  Even though it rained for 10 of the 12 days she had a blast.  

 

A big thank you to MEC for making the Newt Rain Suit.  Our trip would have been a bust without it.

In the video you will see our Swift Algonquin which is incredibly stable and a great family boat.  Dan made the cedar strip canoe using John Winters' Kipawa design (a design also carried by Swift).  

(And a special thanks to big sister Anna for the musical accompaniment to the video)
