Still here...

Me, and the ice :-)

Sorry for the radio silence, but real life has conspired to keep me from being able to update the site since I posted and set out the email a week ago.

I've received just shy of 100 emails so far, and while I don't have time right now to post the dates and names, I've scanned through them all and most of the dates this year are in early April, and there is even a significant number in March!

I've hear from a couple of people that the ice on Canoe Lake is already unsafe, and open a little around the shore. I don't think it's going out any time too soon, but it's definitely going to be early.

For some great on the spot reporting please head over to the Algonquin Outfitters Blog.

Hopefully I'll resurface by Wed or Thu this week with dates and some more info.
