comment What's the difference between white gas, propane, kerosene, and gasoline?
Typical Canada uses the US words for some but not all, we definitely have "Coleman fuel" which I burn in my Whisperlite.

comment What is involved in taking a canoe through a lock on a major US River?
Not saying it's hard - it probably isn't - but that it may not be necessary. Here's an article (canoeacrosscanada.ca/paddle-down-the-trent-severn-waterway) about a trip in Canada where people sometimes used the locks and sometimes portaged around them. If you set off planning to portage around them all, and then were able to go through a few, that would probably be a pleasant surprise. It's more the money/hassle that would keep me from doing it than any difficulty - going through a lock isn't difficult at all no matter how your boat is powered.

probably your best bet is to portage around the lock. There is often a fee to use locks and you may have to wait for a large boat to come through before your turn etc.

cold water in your oatmeal? Take 10 minutes and heat up water for coffee and hot oatmeal. Your day will be nicer for it.
