Don't know much about camping

Postby Absolutely Adequate » Wed Jul 05, 2006 5:16 pm

Well, I don't. I've always been more of a bar guy.

Anyway, here's the story. My buddy who is just out of the Army and I want to go camping next July. We're thinking we'd like to get a canoe somewhere in North America and ride it down a river for 3 weeks. A large lake/system of lakes would do just as well.

Later, I'll be asking you guys for suggestions about what to bring, etc. But right now, I'm hoping you can help us find a place to go.

Our requirements:

Less than 1000 a person
Not too populated.
We'd like a town every few days
We would like it if we could have campfires at least some of the time

We're not really sure where to start. Has anyone done anything like this? Does anyone have a suggestion or two?

Essentially, we'd like to do the AT again, but this time on water.

Which is why I'm hoping you guys might have some inside info. We'll probably avoid Colorado and points south b/c of rapids/flash floods. We'll also avoid much of the south because of heat/anal rape. Also, Pennsylvania seems to be out because there is still a lot of pollution from the steel industry that flourished there.

We're thinking of Canada, actually, but know even less about their water system than we know about the one in the US.

I think the fact you think not wanting to be anally raped makes me picky says a lot about you...

And I should add that although we're mostly thinking of the US or Canada, our trip is not necessarily bound by that. I am currently checking out Costa Rica's rivers, for instance...

I live in Alabama and anal rape only takes place in 1 out of every 2 tourist that comes through. So between you and your buddy one if going home clean.
