back home

During the summer months, we have hundreds of guests drive to Ignace to experience the great Ontario wilderness and abundant fisheries.  The highway through this part of the country is mostly two lanes and we often share the roadway with moose and tractor trailers. 

During the winter months we have another thing to deal with.  Moose don’t hibernate so they are still common on the road, and tractor trailers carry goods that keep the country supplies, so they are still sharing the road.   The additional concern is snow and winter driving conditions.  I wish I could say we can get used to it but we do have to exercise extra care this time of year.

The photo is the trans-Canada highway between Ignace and English River and out of cell phone range.  We took our time and made it home from two weeks of sport shows safely.  I am not sure whether the excessive traffic on the roads south of the border in a snow storm is any more desirable than the lonely roads in our area during a snow storm. 

We are back in the office for a week or so. If you missed us at the shows last week, give us a call and we will set up your Ignace Outposts summer fishing trip.
