I’m a Canadian living in Scotland. I miss many things about home. So I built my first canoe; now I can do some of those things here. Reddit, meet Astrid, I hope you all like her as much as I do.
Thought you guys might appreciate my new backdoor mat that I'm in love with

Can it get any better than this
Just over a year ago I paddled from the Canadian boarder to Long Island Sound about 375 miles/14 days. It was an awesome trip that put a lot of things into perspective for me. Now I’m going back with my girlfriend and a few friends to show them my favorite stretch on labor day weekend. So excited!!
Just picked up this 50 year old 14 ft Northland
Old strip canoe restoration. Almost done! Just gotta finish up the fiberglass and give her a nice coating of varnish and she'll be ready for the water again.

My very favorite possession.
New (to me) canoe day! Old Town Discovery 169
Due to the extremely high winds I found myself lining up the bank. Picked up trash on the way. You’d be amazed how many shotgun hulls I threw in... Still a great day in the canoe.

Just picked up my new Wee Lassie. We-No-Nah. 10.5 ft long 16 lbs. Kevlar ultralight.
I took a couple friends who had never been canoeing into the BWCA. We ended up shooting the tiny Rapids set between Alpine and Seagull lake. While nothing incredible it definitely looks like at least one of them had fun.
When push comes to shove & you have to make a hard push - Paddling to make your train to get out of Mooseonee with little time to spare. There is a great feeling of satisfaction when you make it there in time! From our Moose River trip in Northern Ontario

Just bought an old handmade 18 ft cedar strip canoe. She needs a little TLC but we're hoping to get her out on the lake this weekend.
I picked up the blue boat on FB a couple of days ago for $50. I don't see any branding on it, but it looks like Royalex. It doesn't leak or anything and paddles very well but looks a little rough.

Got the 18’ Mohawk out.
Like a glove.
Neshaminy Creek in PA
3 of us drove a small car with a canoe on top through 60 mph winds in South Dakota, past overturned campers in the ditch, to meet our friend who drove his canoe down from Missoula, to do a day trip on the Snake River below Jackson Lake. It was worth it!
On a well-needed lee
