It was such a wonderful time! It's really cool to preserve the memory with these trip reports! The trips all seem to blend into one after a while.

Really nice report and it is clear how much you enjoy the BW. That thing in the woods is a time machine that can transport you back to the BW in 1920. I have never been to Good Lake but from your description it earns its moniker. Thanks for sharing your experience. Jerry G

Absolutely loved reading your trip report. Loved the flair of comedy running throughout. This was a very enjoyable read.

We went in around the same time as you did - but over on Crab lake and also had a snapping turtle in camp that came right up next to the fire grate.

Currently, section hiking the SHT from Hartley Nature Center to the Otter Lake Road 270° degree overlook. 183/272miles complete.
