The Year Section A Wasn't Last In
At the end of the season in 1994, we took the train back from the outpost as usual. If I remember right the trip usually takes 2 days. A day into the trip a section of the tracks got washed out by a rainstorm, and our train was diverted onto a cargo route that skirted the shore of Lake Superior. We had looped pretty far south to do this, so it ended up taking us an extra day. We ended up getting onto Lake Temagami around four in the afternoon, the day we were to paddle in. When arrived at camp, around six or so, we found out that all the other trips had already arrived, including Section A. Thus, we were given the distinction of the being the last section to paddle in. The first and only year that Section A wasn't given the honor.
