Default How many trips?

Just out of curiosity, how many trips have you made north of the border? Maybe total number of trips, and how many in the current string?

For me, it's been 30 trips since 1999, two a year since 2005, haven't missed one yet, so my total and my streak are 30.

I have 58 trips under my belt. Almost all of them have been to my cabin since '99. 2 more this year.

If you count 'em all, it's probably between 65 - 70 trips. My dad drug his family up to Ontario and Manitoba starting in '66 or '67, when I was barely big enough to hold a pole. Since then, I've missed 6 or 7 years due to college and jobs and what not. To make up for those few lost years, I've been lucky enough to make at least two trips per season since 1996.

The vast majority of those trips were drive-to lakes, with 7 fly-ins scattered in the mix.

Roughly, 127 trips, not counting several to Minnesota, and 2 that are scheduled for 2018. Probably shouldn't have counted the 3 before WWII, as I was mighty young. Unlike now.

Bill, you are "The Man"!

This next trip will be number sixty five for me, but compared to BK I'm still the "New Guy". (There is an acronym for new guy, but this is a "G" rated site, so let's keep it that way.)

Default How many trips?

First trip to Canada was back in 1977 - 41 years ago.
In the beginning - before kids and when the wife worked full time - wed make two trips a year.
Would gues that we have made close to 90 trips in this time frame.
So looking forward to being able to make 2 trips again when I retire.
