Sounds like you guys had a really great trip. You got "missplaced" on your way out,it happens. Two things I would suggest, always carry maps of the aera where your going, and always pack at least one day of food extra [meals in a pouch don't weigh much and are pretty good tasteing] I always carry one extra day for every week I'm out in the bush. Nice pictures. Sounds like your wife is a good "tripping" partner best to keep her around for 50 or 60 years. FRED

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked, the good fourtune to remember the ones do, and the eyesight to tell the differance.

FRED - I immediately purchased a set of Voyaguer maps that cover the whole BWCA. I learn my lesson and will never do that again.


As far as the food goes I have always carried extra food, like you said, except that one time. I will make sure that never happens again.


Thanks for your tips and I agree about my wife being a good "tripping" partner. I'm going to do my best to keep her as long as I can.

Thanks for sharing the report. Glad it turned out well. From reading reports, it seems the greatest lesson is to be flexible with your plans, and you got to stay at the nice campsite, two portages later!
