    hang 'em high!

    Mosquitoes, black flies and gnats are prevalent in the wilderness. Be prepared by carrying a bug suit and DEET.

    Bears can come into a camp and ravage the food supply. Keep a clean camp.No food or scraps left laying about. Clean your catch away from camp. Prepare your food at least 50 meters from your tent. Do not eat food, candy or snacks in your tent.

    Make sure to hang all your food at least 4 meters high and 2 meters from the nearest branch.

    Pt of 1700 m Coal Rapids, just above Thunderhouse

    Before attempting the rapids of the Lower Missinaibi make sure you have the skills to safely negotiate them. There are over 30 sets of rapids not counting waterfalls! Several skilled canoeists have died on this river and many more have lost their gear and or canoes. It can be a long hike back out!

    Make sure you have a healthy respect for the power of the river. If in doubt, take the portage trail.
