Peter Brewster's Daily Trip Log:

 KUUJJUAQ: Re-entry is always a bitter-sweet experience

 I find it is the same after every long canoe trip. Especially one where , although we are wired to the world, there has been no sign of other human life.

Geoffrey Peake's Guide Report:
Our Labrador Odyssey is over

About 6 pm today, after the rain and mists had cleared, a single Otter from Johnny May's Air Charter in Kuujjuaq flew over our camp, circled twice and touched down. Within minutes, we loaded the remnants of our gear-paddles, clothing, tents, computers, generator (now several hundred pounds lighter without food and fuel)-and were airborne again. The pilot banked hard over the last rapid, leveled out, then headed west. On that final turn, faintly off the right wing, maybe 100 km away, I could see the unmistakable outline of the Torngat Mountains to the east, silhouetted against the horizon.

 For the rest of the flight, as we flew over the barren rugged shoreline of Ungava Bay, I thought about the previous three weeks. Twenty-one days ago we were still stuck in Happy Valley, waiting for the weather to clear, uncertain when our Labrador Odyssey would begin.

Michael Peake's Governor's Report:
It's been a pleasure

 It's time I put down both my digital and still cameras to extend a final message for this Hide-Away Canoe Club trip.
 Every trip has its bits of lingo, certain phrases and dialogue which are repeated ad nauseum throughout the journey. For us it's the adding of the suffix -- age -- to a variety of camp words. If a tent is being pitched in a place with a lot of deep soil -- there is good pegage. If the blackflies are out in force (and boy, were they ever) then there's a lot of bugage. And now it's time for wrapage.
