You might remember a couple of weeks ago I wrote about Dave and Matt Turgeon's canoe expedition across
Things were going fine until they reached Sault Ste. Marie,
Thieves made off with about $500 worth of Dave and Matt Turgeon's gear when they left it on shore by the city's waterfront boardwalk early Tuesday afternoon to make a quick supply run to Station Mall.
"We were only gone 15 minutes," said an exasperated Dave Turgeon, 42, shortly after talking to police.
Taken was about $500 worth of rain gear, knives, tools, and, interestingly, the GPS tracking unit the Turgeons were using to update the progress of their expedition for the Sick Kids Foundation on their website.
Dave said the GPS unit provides current location data only, meaning the thief could do little with it but give away his or her own location on the Turgeons' website.
"If they're stupid enough to hit the button," noted Dave.
I guess this shows that the woods are safer then the city.
