WELCOME TO EXPLORE THE BACKCOUNTRY
This website follows the adventures of Wayne and Brad Jennings, a father and son team who feel more at home slogging across a rainy portage trail then lounging around the pool at a first class hotel. Join us as we discover the beauty of the Canadian wilderness while we explore the scenic wonders of our home province, Ontario. Here you’ll find articles, tips, gear guides, trip reports, maps, photos and of course, high definition videos highlighting the many journeys we’ve embarked upon. We hope to inspire you to get out there and explore the backcountry for yourself!
Envisioned as an exploratory canoe route linking two creeks, Grant’s and Bissetts, flowing from the Algonquin Dome to the mighty Ottawa River, it seemed like quite the amazing adventure. A +13km ‘portage’ linking the creek systems was supposed to be one of the greatest challenges, but we would soon learn environmental conditions were to be our greatest foe.
