Hello Andy!
I read your interesting articles and personally know the Plaunt family.
I purchased property from Agnes(Wm. Plaunt’s) widow and knew Espaniel’s as well.
Do you have any information on the bunk houses that were built in Cascaden Twp for the CPR workers or what Mr. Plaint had here besides gravel & mill?

Hi Jenny,
Unfortunately, I don’t know anything about what Mr. Plaunt had in Carscaden Township.

This book is worth reading and will look out for it because it seems to be interesting.

Thanks for your interest. If you are in the Sudbury area the book is available at Coles in the New Sudbury Shopping Centre, the Massey Museum and at the French River Trading Post on HWY 69.

Hello Mr Thomson, I greatly enjoyed your book! I worked at Butchart’s Camp for Gail and Cy in the summer of 1990. I remember very well taking the train to & from Sheanan, riding the “duck” to the camp, unloading supplies from the planes, starting the fire in the wood stove each morning and helping Gail cook breakfast, preparing shore lunches for the guests with the fish they’d caught that morning, so many other wonderful memories. Pog is a beautiful place.

Hi Andy, I am currently doing some research on the Png and came across your blog, which is fantastic. Since you know the area so well I was hoping you could point me in the right direction: I would like to do some backcountry hiking in the area for 1-2 nights with my 19 year old daughter. We are both avid, well-seasoned hikers equipped with GPS and SOS alert devices. Thinking of taking the train from Sudbury to Pogamasing, then start hiking toward the landmarks you describe here

The Google Earth link says I do not have permission to view.

Any tips or advice for hiking the Pog?

I am sorry you couldn’t use the map that illustrated all the Pog adventures I described. I presume it was my creation so an outsider was not able to view.
Did you receive a link I sent?
I think you will need a canoe and camping gear to see most of the sites I have described.
