Have you guys thought about going up after the black flies and skeeterz have petered out? I'm told the sweet spot is mid Sept to mid Oct.

Bugs over and it won't likely snow. Rain can go either way.

For the past three years I have tried to plan a 10-14 day trip up, but something always screws me out of it.

That's not a bad idea. Not sure I have the patience to wait until september, but I can't stand skeeterz and black flies either.

Well, instead of the ride to Revzilla today, I decided to hang out on the toilet with a bucket in my lap... Good times. Wonder if it was the Sushi on Sunday or the time spent at the pediatrician's office this week...

Feeling a bit better now.

I am tentatively planning on leaving early June. I take my board exam June 1st, then I'm taking my kids on a 3-5 day camping/ghost town trip down into WV. I will then start clinicals about two weeks later, so that's my window. This is about the same time frame that I did my Newfoundland trip last year and only had to deal with black flies and skeeters one night, so hopefully the same will be true in Northern Quebec.
