I recently discovered bwca.com and am loving this site. What a great gathering of info. Really love the messageboard and everyones willingness to help others and posting of great info.

I first went out of the end of Gunflint when I was in first grade and the trail was a narrow dirt road. I have been loving the Boundary Waters ever since. This summer I will be taking my 17 yr old son in for another great adventure, He looks forward to it every year.
Even after all these years and trips in, new tips and tricks always help. Hopefully you can teach this old dog new tricks! I have already learned quite a few in a short time on the site. :)

Anyway...just wanted to say thanks to all the members and Adam for a great site with such a wonderful community of fellow wilderness enthusiasts!
THANK_YOU!

I found it by typing bwca.com in my address bar. Adam's got the best URL. ;-)

Everybody sure is friendly here!
I hope I meet some of you in the wilderness this summer...
Maybe we should make a super secret paddle wave or something so we recognize each other. I dont always swim across the lake, sometimes I ride in a canoe.
Sure am looking forward to this years trip, and then I can make a trip report!

Thanks for the warm welcome and welcome to others new to the board!

Stickers....OK.... :-X

We do look for them. We can spot a flying moose across the lake, on a portage or on top of a vehicle. (ESPECIALLY, if you put them ON your vehicle) Most flying moose sightings are either met with a hug or a posting on this site.
