Is the Week Over Already?
entry by McBain 
6/26/2005 9:19 PM

Well I just got back from my week long vacation to Northern Ontario. I am currently sorting through pictures (all 250 of them) and videos (10 minutes) worth and uploading them to my computer. The weather was great for sitting out on the patio have a few cold drinks, but was not the type of weather for biking(which was the main reason for vacation) or to explore.

There were alot of places to explore. I first went to an abandoned fire lookout tower halfway between Lanark and Calabogie Ontario.I got within probably 1 KM of the tower, when I came across what looked to be a baby coyote , and heard rustling in the trees nearby which I assumed was the rest of the family. Lets just say I didn't want to be continue, especially since all I had with me was my camera and a water bottle. I stayed 1 night in Renfrew Ontario at a relatives place. I did a little exploring around there. There was an abandoned Canadian Tire Store which was in the process of being converted to an Ambulance Station, as well as an abandoned Home Hardware Store on the main street that were interesting to view.

My trip brought me along Hwy 17 north, towards North Bay, and there is definitely alot of UE potential along this route. Abandoned Campgrounds, old gas stations, restaurants that would be an excellent day trip. I stayed most my week in Temiskaming Shores, about 1 1/2 hrs drive North of North Bay. There was not too much to explore in the area. I do have some amazing videos of Devil's Rock, which I hiked on my trip. Amazing View of the area. I also went up to the old mining towns of Larder Lake and Virginiatown. Lots of UE potential here as well. Lots of abandoned businesses, and the trend seemed to be for every three houses, 1 was either boarded up, for sale, or abandoned. Kinda gave me the chills when I drove down the main street and not a single person was outside. I took pictures of alot of the abandoned buildings but was not able to enter into any of them. One home I took a picture of was still being occupied, but the owner had a sign in his front yard reading (Glenn Bradley: UFO's are real Spacecraft). Something out of the Twilight Zone.

Lots more stories to tell. Little time to type them. I am sorting through the locations I saw and I will see if any of them are UEDB worthy.
