    From August 7-9, 2012 I led a trip into this beautiful park. I have paddled it two other times both in spring. My proposed route was to paddle from Head Lake to Victoria Lake and then back. We were stopped at the north end of Crooked Lake. The Head River was so low that it was impassable and there are no marked portages to get around the marsh/swamp. We camped on Crooked and then had a relaxing trip back to Fishog. From there we tried to paddle up Digby Creek which I have done in the spring but again it was choked with Alders and impossible to even find. Anyway awesome time outdoors paddling spotted a bear, turtles, friendly beer-sharing Americans and heard my favourite bird in that area the Whippoorwill.

    It is passable but at this time of year it takes a little work to find the holes through the alders.
    and the channel in places is very narrow, but once past the first narrow spots it is pretty clear with several pull overs up till the next dam (it is partially washed out) from there to Victoria all the portages are marked.(i flagged them 2 years ago)
    There is another way up, just north of Crooked lake lodge there is a small knotch in the rock ridges, that is a no go, but there is a well used trail (not marked) just to the west of that up and over the ridge (go north) and follow the pond system up to Jordon Lake and the across to Victoria.
    Tried to mark it last fall but there was 2 groups of deer hunters using that trail so we went up the head again and went into Jordon that way.
    Here is a trip report link from last year … 08&t=38103
    I am glad to share my info and maps. (been paddling the area since 68… :oops: )
    and Stajan leafs of myccr has a very good interactive map of the area.
    and on his map he mentions the very thing you found at the top end of crooked … izabethmap

    And this year I tried to get into Jordon via the south end of Crooked but ran into a major beaver dam fail 3/4 of the way through and a few wolves… But that is the thing pond hopping in QEW sometimes the ponds are in, sometimes they are not.
    This years trip … 08&t=39822
    You can do some amazing tripss in this park but I prefer before black fliess and after bugs.
    Certain sections can get heavy use in hunting season though so wear your orange.

    Ps I don’t mind sending copies of my maps it is just that on the fine print of google maps and other services like map your ride hike you give up all your rights to pic and information and they can use at will,
    Panaramio use to be protected till google took over this year and change the rules, the same goes with pics there funny there was no warning, I just went pack in for fun and checked and saw the update, so I will be removing my stuff from there also.
    On myccr we retain the copy right (the author)

    Cool info and report thanks.



    One , LED control function to distinguish

    1, the internal and external control
    Internal control : control chip inside the lamp , no external controller , connected to AC power supply needed to synchronize the internal control , and while the power .

    External control : not all space inside the lamp has no control chip. When external control is the need for an external controller. Usually outside the control of the lamp function is determined by the controller function.

    2 , colorful and full color

    Speaking of color , we must understand the relevant knowledge of the three primary colors . Our primary colors of said luminaire is RGB, red, green , and blue. Are additive color mixing , not what we say vulgar Yellow Blue ( subtractive color mixing ) . Changes RGB three color channels and overlay each other to get a wide range of colors they can say includes almost all the colors the human eye can perceive .

    Colorful : RGB three colors is simply mixed

    Full Color: RGB model using the RGB components of each pixel is assigned a 0 to 255 intensity values ​​within the range . Such as: pure red value of R 255, G is 0, B is 0 ; gray, R, G, B three values ​​are equal ( except 0 to 255 ) ; White R, G, B are 255 ; black the R, G, B are 0. RGB image using only three colors , so that they can be mixed at different ratios , reproduce 16777216 colors on the screen. In RGB mode , can be used for each RGB component values ​​from 0 ( black ) to 255 ( white) . For example , a bright red using the R value of 246, G , and B values ​​50 value of 20 when all three scores are equal , resulting in shades of gray . When the value of all the ingredients are 255 , the result is pure white ; When 0:00 this value , the result is pure black.

    3 , 16 sections , true and false sixth sixth

    We are talking about a segment on the guardrail , can be understood as a pixel , each pixel has a set of RGB lamp beads , is no stranger to us pixels on a computer monitor is said by the pixel resolution point representation.

    16 sections of guardrail is a 16 pixel by the constitution , really Liuduan by 6 pixel structure, so that we leave sixth , because he was not constituted by the pixels , but by simply jumping segment to simulate the real sixth segment display. Its essence is colorful hopping .

    4 , stand-alone controllers and online controller

    [url=]LED lighting[/url] display controller varied, the common market, the controller can be divided into two kinds of stand-alone and online .

    The controller must be online and connected to the computer , [url=]LED panel lights[/url] display and computer can synchronize playback.

    Stand-alone controller does not need to purchase additional computer, it has a memory card inside , there is usually an SD card , CF card two kinds , the program you want to play into the memory card , you can make the [url=]LED downlights[/url] display playback memory card program a .

    Second, the lamp current and voltage sense

    Speaking of current, voltage, LED in the end it is necessary to understand what it is.

    LED (Light Emitting Diode), light emitting diodes , referred to as [url=]LED lights[/url], is a kind of electrical energy into visible light can solid-state semiconductor devices, which can directly convert electrical energy into light.


    LED is a diode , it is the general characteristics of the diode. Here just say two things. First , LED point negative , a second voltage across the LED is substantially fixed constant , typically 2-3V

    Power :

    We used the LED current is generally small power 18mA, high-power 1W to 350mA, 3W is 700mA. Just need to make LED light LED forward current can be passed over , nothing to do with voltage.
