Report


I'm a passionate BWCA'er - I usually have 2 short trips per year. This one was a 5 day trip from Mudro to Fall at the end of June 2017 with a group of four.

The trip started with bad, cold weather on day 1. Great paddling down some rapids on day 2. Waterfalls, cooking and fishing on day 3. On day four we had a dangerous capsize near Wheelbarrow Falls and we also rescued a party who had capsized and been dragged down Nestor Falls! In the early hours of day 5 be had a bear in our camp! It was a terrific adventure. I made short videos with a voiceover and posted to youtube:

I used some amazing new gear on this trip that really added value to the experience. I'm no expert but I'm very happy to share experiences and ideas with anyone who is interested.
