    Hey everyone!

    I'm Jenn and I'm from Hamilton Ontario Canada.

    I grew up camping with my family. My first canoe trip was when I was 2. My parents started us out in a modified van, then moved up to a pup, then went to a travel trailer, then eventually bought a cottage 30 minutes from Algonquin Park.

    I'm a tent camper graduating into a pup next summer. Sadly my back can't handle the long portages and sleeping on the ground anymore.

    I'm looking forward to "meeting" everyone and learning about what I can do with my trailer!

    Welcome to the portal from Central NY. I know what you mean about sleeping on the ground, though we did have air mattresses. It was the getting up that I had trouble with. Happy camping!

    Welcome from N/W Fl Panhandle. Sleeping off the ground surely makes a person enjoy camping much more, not counting the advantages of the appliances, especially in inclement weather. Good luck and Happy camping

    Welcome! Algonquin is probably my favorite place in the world for canoe camping! As a new father (at 46, I might add) it looks like I'm five or six years away from another trip. I have been looking for a way to give my family the "Algonquin Experience" in the popup, though, which I suppose is the woods, remoteness, and wildlife without the portage and canoe experience. I hope you find the same!

    Welcome to the Portal from Northbay.. Please checkout the Canadian Planning a Rally Section for info about the planned Rallies for 2019, at this point only our 6th Annual Summer Rally has partial info posted (rest will be coming on Monday). Info on the 3rd Annual KoTS (Kickoff To Summer) Rally (May long weekend) and the 5th Annual TGG (Thanksgiving Gathering) Rally (on Thanksgiving weekend of course) will be posted mid November. I also think Strawhouse is planning something this year as well.

    Welcome, I am also from the GTA but on the east side.

    We moved to a pop three summers ago and we wish we had done it sooner.
