#1: Point 58°N 102°W

(visited by Christian Tessmer)

English

27-Jun-2015 -- Ausgangspunkt der Kanutour im Jahr 2015 war die Grand Slam Fishing Lodge in Kinoosao, an der Ostseite des Reindeer Lakes, wo ich die Freunde Floyd und Marianne im Sommer 2008 kennengelernt habe.

Wir, Lothar Pörtner und Christian Tessmer wollten den See in nördlicher Richtung umrunden. Dabei sollte der Confluence Point 58°N 102°W der nördlichste Punkt unserer Kanutour werden. Erreicht haben wir ihn vom See aus, nach etwa 1,5 km, quer durch ein ehemaliges Waldbrandgebiet. Es war ein relativ einfacher Weg.

Anschließend ging es in südöstlicher Richtung bis nach Brochet, ein schönes und sehr sauberes Indianerdorf. Hier konnten wir unsere Vorräte ergänzen und ein Lebenszeichen in die Heimat senden.

Der Reindeer Lake ist ein sehr fischreicher See. Seeforelle. Hecht und Zander standen bei uns immer ganz oben auf der Speisekarte. Nach 4 Wochen und etwa 450 Paddelkilometern und überwiegend sehr schönem Wetter, durften wir bei Floyd und Marianne in Kinoosao die Gastfreundschaft genießen.

27-Jun-2015 -- The starting point of the canoe trip in 2015 was the Grand Slam Fishing Lodge in Kinoosao, on the east side of the Reindeer Lakes, where I have met my friends Floyd and Marianne in summer 2008.

We, Lothar Pörtner and Christian Tessmer, wanted to padle around the lake in a northerly direction. The 102 ° West should the Confluence Point 58°N 102°W should be the northernmost point of our canoe trip. We arrived at it from the lake, 1.5 km away, across a former forest fire area. It was a relatively simple way.

Then we went in a southerly direction to Brochet, a nice and very clean Indian village. Here we were able to complete our supplies and send home a sign of life.

Reindeer Lake is a very good fishing lake. Lake trout, Northern pike, and Walleye were always on top of our menu list.

After 4 weeks and about 450 kilometers paddling with mostly very nice weather, we were able to enjoy the hospitality of Floyd and Marianne at Kinoosao.
