Hopefully making my second and third trips this year! Aiming for the border lakes in late July, and another trip before or after back to EP 47 with our oldest child. Timing all depends on when my BWCA "souvenir" decides to make its way into the world. :D

Still here lurking... busier this past year so less than I used to but it's still my happy place on the internet! 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!

Just pulled an EP 54 permit last night for entry on 8/13. Back to where it all began 10 years ago, or at least the first & last few miles. Going to do the short loop from Sea Gull to Red Rock & out on Sea Gull via Gull River. It will be me + my two youngest, one of which went to the BWCA in 2016 up the Granite River. A request was made for blueberry opportunities, so we'll see what we can come up with over a week up there.

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!
