A Weekend Getaway Success!

splash LOTNOur first weekend workshop at our new home on Golden Pond was in our eyes a great success. Our new student intern Sarah led with grace three joyful women from North Bay how to make their very own summer moccasins. The weekend was topped off with White Birch crafts, camp fires, nature hikes and even a few little bonus activities. To view the photo album please click here.

Firewood Season is Upon Us

Its never too early to start preparing for winter!

It has been an incredibly rewarding and eventful season, starting with our first workshops in September, and culminating in our crossing of the Temagami Wilderness Area last month! Now it is time for us to take a break and concentrate on other needs around our wilderness property: specifically, putting away enough firewood for next winter! For the next few weeks, we won’t be spending much time answering emails, or completing orders. If you need to receive an answer to a question in a hurry, please give us a call, alternatively if you need an order delivered quickly, please call or email for availability before placing your order.

Thank you for your patience, it has been another wild ride, and we look forward to hearing from you again next year!

Woodsmoke Expedition Has Returned

03travelexpLOTNWe are back from a wonderful journey with our new partners from the UK Woodsmoke. We had a group of 9 people come from across the United Kingdom that all had different accents that by the end I had adopted a little piece of each.

It was a grand adventure and we are now gearing up for our Explorer’s Club Expedition this year which is a crossing of the Temagami Wilderness.

Out for much of the remainder of the season!

We are heading out to the hills until Feb 12th. After that trip wraps up we’ll try to process as many orders and emails as possible, but then will be out again Feb 20th – Mar 6th, then Mar 8th – 11th, then we’re running a program at our home base Mar 12 – 19th. So we’re pretty much incommunicado until the snow starts to melt.

We want to thank everyone for their interest and support this season, and wish you a wonderful snow walking season!

Vast Horizons

LOTN Vast Horizons04

What a neat experience leaving right from our home at the Pond and entered into our Vast Horizons expedition. It was 3 days of beauty. Gorgeous giant hemlocks, beech and pines along with evidence of bears, squirrels, deer and wolves. We saw a Bald Eagle soar over us after a really tough portage that lifted our spirits!
