    Very good. Perfect for watching as I have breakfast. Makes me want to go paddling.

    I spotted the Baileys. The perfect milk substitute while camping as well as a survival food in its own right

    It's more versatile than that. Toast a marshmallow on the fire, scoop the middle out. Then fill the cup that's left with Bailey's and you have a grown-up's campfire treat.

    It sure is. Goes great with breakfast cereal or granola. You can dip you pancakes in it. Use it for making tablet instead of milk. Really anywhere milk is used Baileys can be substituted. Only downside is you can’t drive as much

    It is so tempting to see these overseas waters.

    I tasted the delights of Algonquin a couple of years ago and you've sown the seed again.

    Great video and I liked the music. A tot of Baileys would go well with another viewing!

    Thank you,

    Doug

    That's awesome! I recognize many a location in that video as that's where I filmed a video. Too bad about the cold gray weather but it's still a nice route for a quick get away. I also stayed on Paul Island. Is this on a gopro and did you use more than one battery for all of this? Thanks for making/sharing the video.

    Probably my best option here to be honest, and a lot cheaper than the required medication!

    Hey, stay connected and keep boosting my ego. Seriously though, thanks for the compliments and I hope I have a few more vids to come over the winter.

    It was a combination of two Go Pro's. One was old tech (which was sadly just lost on the Sturgeon-Weir) and the other was a Black Hero 7. All done on one battery each although I do carry a charging pack. What do you use?

    For the video on the French/Ducker route I used a GoPro Hero 3 Silver and used it until Last year when I got a Hero 5 Black which I'm still using. Huge improvement between the two. Sometimes I take a Nikon D5300 that I have a telephoto lens for in hopes of catching the far off wildlife.

    Thanks for the info. I lost my old Go Pro on the Sturgeon - Weir so will need a new one.
