White pine forests - possible Bigfoot habitats?
With thousands of red and white wines in the world, it can be difficult to choose the perfect ones. The same is true of the trees that form the backdrop of your vacation in Northeastern Ontario! To make deciding easier, we've created a list of vintage reds and whites . . . pine trees, that is, to explore on your next hike in the BIG wilderness of the North.

Pete Maina with one of his many trophy muskies
Being in the fishing industry for years - I've fielded many a fishing question. Likely the top question: "What is your best or favorite lake?" (These questions are generally referencing muskie, as this is the species I'm most known for.) Impossible question, actually, the way I perceive it – as my favorite lake varies with regard to current "catching" – which is always subject to many factors including individual lake dynamics, weather changes ... for me, the question becomes much easier to answer- in the context of where I enjoy fishing most. I answer Ontario's Canadian Shield lakes which are found throughout Sunset Country. I've been going for years - as much as I can – whether soft or hard…

Old Woman Bay, Lake Superior, is an amazing scenic leg stretch stop.
It's one of the Top Ten Drives in Canada. It has been named one of the best Ontario motorcycle routes twice. The twists and turns of the road are described as thrilling, even knuckle clenching at times. Massive rock cuts, pristine wilderness and amazing views of Lake Superior. The stretch of highway from Wawa to Sault Ste. Marie is one of the most incredible stretches of the Trans-Canada Highway that you'll ever experience by car or motorcycle. Now imagine if this stretch of the Trans-Canada Highway never existed. Imagine if you drove to Agawa Bay...and then had to turn back. Imagine never being able to step off your motorcycle, or drive your car and see magnificent rock formations like Old…
Marc McNay, creator and producer of The Real Deal
What is The Real Deal and how did we come to be? Living in Northwestern Ontario sure has its advantages, and small town living has many benefits as well. Sure, we may not have 15 movie theatres or 5 malls, but being able to literally drive 20 minutes from my house and be in quality deer or bear hunting area more than makes up for those things. Not to mention being able to fish right in city limits or to run your snow machine in many places close to and into the city. Yup, I live in small town Northwestern Ontario... and I LOVE it! What does this all have to do with The Real Deal and being on coast…
