Re: Planning a trip
Chucks idea is a good one.
The Connecticut river may be a possibility. Only part of the trip would be on the NFCT but I think there is only one short portage at wyoming day.
I don’t know how many canoes you’ll have but you could also do a trip in the Adirondacks starting up in the Floodwood area of Upper St Saranac Lake and ending in Saranac village mostly on the NFCT. I think you can rent a couple of carts Raquette River Outfitters that will make the .6 mile Bartlett Carry very easy, they’re great folks and offers shuttles and free trip planning as well.
