If you have ever been on a canoe trip, you know that the planning starts with 3 main questions:
- where are you going?
- how long are you going for?
- who are you going with (or will this be a solo trip?)?
For me, the issue has always been ‘who am I going with?’. Having returned from living abroad 6 years ago and re-immersing myself into camping/canoeing/hiking etc., I lacked ‘outdoor friends’. I could usually convince my friends and family to car camp but the backcountry was asking too much.
