Portaging and canoeing come together. During our four years adventure, we have portaged a lot. Sometimes, we were able to use a custom kit of wheels (placed under the canoe). This allowed us to pull the canoe and our equipment at the same time. At other times, we had to carry everything on our
backs. We refined our technique over the time and came up with an effectively way of doing it. *
For the first two trips, we each carried on our back all our equipment. Jasmine, meanwhile, was chasing away the wildlife (during the first trip), then stayed patiently at the depot and waited for our return. *
For the last trip, we carry the canoe (containing lighter items, ropes and the spray deck) on our
shoulders (marathon style). This was a much faster way to do it. The weight was distributed on two
Once the three trips were completed, the process was repeated again and again, until the portage was totally done. . . . . . . . .
