    Here's mine:
    I'm a little concerned that if I went over that in my open it really would be the last place I paddled before I die!

    Rols.

    a month long trip in canada. If the end was iminent I would just keep going to the end.

    This thread made me think. I only average about 50 days paddling a year. I'm forty now. thats only 2000 paddling days left if I'm lucky. And I spent today looking for a train 100 miles away!

    Default Places to canoe before you die.

    Possibly the Back River in northern Canada. Subject of a great video by Robert Perkins and a book called 'Into the Great Solitude'. Thoroughly recommend it.

    I'd like to go to the Boundary waters/ Quetico-Superior area and visit the places I've read about in Sigurd Olson's books.

    I'd also like to go to the Yukon. I do a bit of recreational gold panning here in Scotland, and there's a lot of gold rush history up there.

    A third place is Knoydart.

    In Anshun, Guizhou, China they have an underground lake that you can take boat tours into called the Dragons Palace. That could be interesting. Lots of other water in China too. We have an underground lake near my house but it is only a few hundred feet long.
