Kevin Callan, the Happy Camper is heading off today on a 20 day Algonquin Park trip to tackle The Meanest Link. His neighbour and frequent canoeing partner Andy Baxter is along for the ride as they take on 93 portages. We stopped by to see his light Nova Craft Canoe, just how heavy his packs were (Kevin was still deciding on what was deemed 'necessary') and to wish him "Happy Trails".

He's hoping to post updates, so keep tabs on him through his Facebook page

(Special thanks to Kyla for posing with Kevin with their Badger Paddles.)

Update: June 23rd, 2013 - Catch Kevin Callan on CBC's Fresh Air about his trip.
