Trip Introduction:


Wound up with a short but fun excursion of a bit of the boarder.

Float Stanley was with us, except we noticed him missing when we got to Robbins Island. He was comfy back at my truck and got a good snooze going. He even saved us 2 brews for our return. Returned to Moose thru Vera and experienced the most beautiful portage (Vera to Ensign), I have been on. Ran into Bumabu in Zupp's parking lot and Float hooked up for a trip with him!
