"It stormed in the middle of the night and the tree came crashing down. A large branch would have certainly damaged the tent and certainly would have injured us."


That is my greatest fear while in the wilderness. Glad you got to spend some quality time on a beautiful lake.

I love Slim Lake and the paddle to Hatchet is a nice one. Glad you moved that tent!


There's some good fishing on the Gunflint side as well. Ely isn't the only BW outpost. Give it a try sometime.

We all have to believe in something. I believe I'll go paddle.
