that I have that off my chest,let me start by telling you a little about
Consider this site as my patriotic duty to bring others into this great
country of Canada to experience the Great Canadian Outdoors. Seems the
government here has got better things to do with our tax dollars than
to spend it on promoting tourism in our end of the province so I have
taken it upon myself to do the task. I can only hope you find this page
worthy enough to take the time to browse and hopefully come back and
visit. Be sure to visit my Favorite Links page
where you will find links to some useful pages on canoeing, equipment
and other resource pages as well as some of the finest home pages dedicated
to canoeing and kayaking. I have personally viewed these pages and you
will not waste your time linking to pages that say they have canoeing
related content only to find that the only canoe content is a drawing
of a canoe or kayak.
So sit back, relax and get educated as you enter "Possum Lodge"
the best page for canoe related information this side of the 49th parallel.
