"Wakes you up, makes you poop." This statement made me laugh out loud!


Great story, hope you enjoy many more.

I loved the reflective introduction to each of your days. Multiple times you perfectly captured a feeling only those truly immersing themselves in their surroundings ever get to feel.


And you are right, those magical "honey holes" will fill your thoughts and stories forever and ever.

My favorite quote of the trip report:)


I read this while sipping my first cup of coffee in the morning. Wow, great writing style and its great to hear you had a successful basecamping trip.


Next time portion out the Spirits; two fingers a night, three fingers a night, or whatever. This will ensure some celebratory whiskey each night:)
Yes, it is something special to receive a gifted pile of firewood when arriving at camp. Those that do this, well, they just understand. This is a personal rule for me, like sweeping the camp before final departure.


I could also eat fried fish EVERY day and be happy as a clam.


Thanks for sharing.
