“There was a tight clump of trees together, that provided good wind and rain and snow protection. About 6-7 feet up, I lashed a couple sticks about 4 inches in diameter up in the air like struts for a canoe rack. Tomorrow, I’ll attach the canoe to that. I’m pretty confident that will be adequate unless some curious bear comes around. ” – Will Steger, May 21, 2018. NWT. Day 63.
