Did you really go paddling an inflatable party island in Algonquin Park? I get asked about this a lot lately. The answer is – You bet your ass we did. We are just getting the story to you now…
This past summer turned out to be a tough year for the ManCamping canoe. It suffered a catastrophic blow when a friend fell on it after a few drinks by the bonfire at the ManCamping compound. We weren’t even camping when it happened! It was pretty funny to see him go ass over tea kettle doing it, but the canoe suffered the consequences. To make a long story short, it was in for repair for two and a half months!!
It was Easter long weekend, and as you read in the title – Scot from ManCamping split his pants. We didn’t have much with us in the way of camera equipment and we certainly weren’t in the woods. But, you can learn as lesson here, and apply it to your wilderness adventures. Instead of just being embarrassed, why not make something useful. We made char cloth!
We’d like to thank Meghan (Scot’s wife) and his parents for their patience in not killing him, and for the help with the video. 🙂

Part 1 of 4 Videos that we are finally getting uploaded here. We had a few issues with our video software and as men, we wildly refuse to ask for help, or directions, or admit defeat, or.. well you get it.
What do you think ManCamping found at the Gentleman’s Expo that would be related to the wilderness? For those who know us, I bet you can guess! Alcohol, Cigars, Alcohol, Alcohol, and even a cure for a hangover! Sort of. Be sure to watch all the videos as we may have been taste testing and the videos get better and better. We also translate each video into Man-Language at the end so don’t miss out!
We’ll get a few videos up per day (or every other day) for the next few days! Starting off the new year right!
Check out what Thomas Hinds Tobacconists had to say to us, and make sure to visit them on the web (http://www.thomashinds.ca) and in person to pick up your supplies before heading into the woods. They are a great bunch of guys who played along with us and more importantly, they really knew their stuff when it came to talking smoke!
Some of you may have seen our post about our Killarney Trip last month. Some of you know that a ManCamping trip never goes as planned. Well, we have a video breakdown of how each day went.. Johnny ManCamping is up first. Any guesses on how this trip went?
