Our Kawartha group cleaned up Cold and Cox Lake. Most of the sites weren't too bad (some were horrible). The main organizer, Nancy Maddock, was there organizing us all. Deb and Mike also helped out. And Ashley (Speedo Man) came along with Kyla, my four-year-old daughter, and I.

The group camped out since Friday but Ash, Kyla and I only went for the Saturday (I was parenting this weekend since my wife, Alana, was running the London marathon). It was a good thing we only went for the day. The rain and cold weather got to Kyla a bit and we retreated back to the vehicle by 3:00 pm. Kyla was a trooper though. So was Ashley. But the metal of honour goes to Deb, Mike, Nancy and her brother for camping out in the nasty weather, and collecting the garbage. The park Super for Kawatha Highlands also volunteered to pick up all our trash we had collected.

Ash and Kyla only argued once in the front of the canoe - and it was who tooted the most.
