That was nice. Very cool that you got to see the fire and plane up close.

It's also great that Eric's parents live so close to the BW. Just think - fresh blueberry pie every summer!

Side question: How are you enjoying Chicago these days? It's been the coldest winter in 24 or 25 years I've heard.

Wow, what a fantastic trip report. I loved your description, your pictures, and your trip. Really first class. And I'm always glad to see there are other folks out there who think "why do 2 portages when you can do 9 instead?!" Thanks for turning on the way-back machine to share with us.

Thanks so much for the wonderful report. Great descriptions and pictures! You made my day. It's so nice to have new reports in the middle of this chilly, snowy winter.

I really enjoyed your report. Thanks for sharing with us.. Nicely done.



Never lost. All portages and roads go somewhere or they would not be there.

Glad you all enjoyed it! This site is definitely helping me thru the winter blahs.

Tom T--The first couple of weeks here were rough. Seems like if it wasn't snowing then the temps were below zero... A big change from sunny and 60 every day. But I'm finally starting to enjoy it--went to a state park and played in the snow last weekend. With the temperature at a whopping 37 degrees, it felt like spring!

An excellent creative title and
like a book, it drew me in

I opened your report more out of curiosity and I found that you can judge a book by it's cover (in your case)

Nice job but no thanks on even being close to smoke on the water (unless smoke from my campfire)

I just looked at your last posting of photo's and would like to know where the Killarney photo was taken? I liked reading your report. I like when canoeists title their pictures for it makes them more interesting. Have you been back to BWCAW lately? You can email me at canoenut46@hotmail.com

Lets go canoe tripping as often as possible. "You never stop having fun because you grow old, you grow old because you stop having fun".
