Congratulations, that's an impressive trip and report. You hit em all from fishing, the sights seen and distance traveled pretty awesome! Thank you for the conversations.
I've enjoyed your YouTube work as well. Lots of pretty scenery.
Cheers!!

I enjoyed your report and pictures. I am in agreement with you on the motorboat travelers in that area. There are so many places in MN that has great fishing for motor boaters and so few places without them that I wish the BWCA would start to encourage a decrease or at least up the enforcement of LNT in those areas. Thanks for sharing about your trip.

Great report!

Soloing is sweet, but a good partner is "priceless."

I agree with you. Lots of other options. Reclaiming Basswood would be incredible!

Our trip went great! Got some peaceful solitude for seven days. We actually caught some fish which was nice. The prize was watching a wolf across the Heritage Creek from our campsite on Heritage Lake. Pretty cool Stuff. We did the Loon to Heritage portage in a thunderstorm making some sections a tad treacherous. That was rough but no slips or falls.
It was just nice chilling with my son for a week.
I'll head back in October for a solo mission. Hit me up anytime.
Again, excellent report. I look forward to the YouTube posting.
Cheers!

That's quite a trip. You really do cover a lot of miles don't you?


Wonderful description and photos. Thanks for taking the time so we could enjoy a bit of your adventure.
