Burnstick Lake - Toyhauler weekend

View Canada Niagara to Calgary on divatmotoros's travel map.

We do not need any better amusement park than a toyhauler and our trailer parked far away from civilisation in the forest, good friends, good food and good mood! It was all happening last weekend when we followed the recommendation of our long friends from Budapest now linving and camping in Canada. We agreed to meet at their favourite place at Burnstick Lake and I was very excited to see them again. We arrived a bit earlier and there were wild horses on the agreed spot in the forest. See them behind Echo:


Later those walked away peacefully and we heard a lot of wolfs howling in the distance later in the evening. They took their huge dog with them and the two dogs were playing almost all time of the weekend. They enjoyed it a lot and Echo was sleeping for two days after the weekend!


It was also more than 8 years that I was last riding a motorbike so the quad he took seemed like a good compromise. It was surprisingly hard to keep that beast on the trail especially when the trail was inclined to the side or was muddy. I was ending once sideways in a big puddle and had to struggle backwards for minutes to get back on track. Much harder than it seems on rough roads! My friends 14 years old daugter was speeding and sliding with the squad like a superstar, I was not able to master it during this weekend. I still had a lot of fun! I also tried the dirtbikes (a smaller one and a large KTM as well) and that was scary as hell too! I was always riding on concrete before so doing 60-70 kmh on a dirt road was frightening! These bikes are capable of much more than I did and it was also proven by my friend and his 12 year old son who was zig-zagging on the dirt roads with the smaller (but very powerful) dirtbike.


In the evenings we cooked traditional Canadian (BBQ) and Hungarian food (lecsó) and listened to our joint favourite music (hungarian alternative bands like Kispál és a Borz, Quimby and Császári Pillanatművek)


The weather was nice to us and we used the kayaks and floaties as well, not only the kids enjoyed the real summer activities. The lake was also surprisingly pleasant, not too cold.
