Day 7: Thunder

By Joe Gadient

Day 7 started out pretty much the same as the other days: The guys waking up to everybody else pushing their canoes into the water.

It was the first day that we had rain while we were paddling, but we still managed to go 20 kilometers. It also helped that we didn’t have any real portages. We had about a 10-minute lunch because we heard some loud thunder as we were eating. So even though we went 20 kilometers, we made it to our next campsite around 2:30 p.m.

As we were pulling into camp, it started to rain a little harder, so everybody put their tents up as fast as they could. We all pretty much stayed in our tents for the rest of the afternoon and night.
