Report


Rest Stop on I-70 on our way to BWCA! [paragraph break] Day Hike to Magnetic Rock Before going out. [paragraph break] Love seeing the lupines every June! [paragraph break] Ready to go! The plan is two weeks. No real schedule. Hope to make it to Frost Lake. We have changed our route 4 years and missed making it to Frost Lake. [paragraph break] An early afternoon rain and lightening made for a short first day out. [paragraph break] [paragraph break] [paragraph break] Even on rainy days, this solar panel kept batteries charged for 3 Kodak Play Sport cameras, 1 Olympus, 1 Sanyo GC10 and 1 Nikon P510. I have over 10 batteries for each camera. I depended on charging the 2 2500ah batteries that I used to charge used batteries overnight. When not traveling I could also charge the camera batteries during the day along with both 2500ah batteries. [paragraph break]
