Happy you're here, Dave! As a former backpacker, I assure you that canoeing is considerably easier. When I backpacked, water was always an issue: How much did I dare lug? Where was the next water?

But when you canoe, not only are floating on drinking water, but it cools you. Ahhh!

Planning at least a couple of trips this summer, tackling Big Sag for the first time in late July. Excited to see new lakes and thrilled to be sharing the trip with a fellow BWCA.com-er who has become one of my best friends.

This is from my July 2017 Lady Chain trip with hubby. Landing at our first campsite on Polly on what turned out to be one of my favorite trips ever.

Happy New Year one and all!

Here,

Had a custom 1000 piece puzzle made for my family to put together at Christmas. A picture my brother took on Gordon on our trip this year.



I was only home a few days. Just got the text yesterday weeks later that they finally finished it.



I think I enjoyed the joke more than they did!

Still here, chasing kids around cuts my time down on bwca.com but the fire inside still burns strong. Just our annual late June trip planned so far this year.

Training Beav? For what? Some circumnavigation of an Orlando pond in March?? JK :O)

Still here. We will head to Canada again this Summer. Finally tired of driving from South Georgia and will try to figure out how to fly to Thunder Bay and then rent a truck to drive to Quetico and our camp near Quetico. Will be 73 this summer.

Wondering what caused my shoulder surgery - But looking at the size of the pack in my canoe, I think I found my answer.

Always good ground-proofing to have...

Still here! Not sure when or where we're going quite yet.
We're getting goats this spring, so much will depend on that.

Living the dream.

I love this site-so many great folks here. Doing another trip to Vermillion this year. It is a great fishing lake but pales in comparison to our boundary waters trips. Hopefully after I get my other knee replaced I will be back!

Still here and working on my 2018 resolutions. #1 to find more things to be fearful of and #2 to say thank you more often.

Damn you (I mean thank you) Mother Nature for dumping 30" of snow on Cleveland Montana the day before I showed up to pheasant hunt and thank you for the three 40+ degree days I was there to melt it!
