I tried to format this so that a person would not have to scroll back and fourth; perhaps someone could school me.

I will definitely be sharing this report with two of my daughters. Between them they have four potential trippers aged 2 - 5. Thanks for sharing!

Thank you for the great report and photos. Another report with kids that gets me excited to bring my girls (4 and 2) on a trip in a couple of years. Awesome!

I have to say,a Ford tractor with a front-end loader may have to go on my list of necessary gear. Great trip report and a great job of introducing the next generation to the BWCAW. It sounds like the perfect first trip.

nice trip report, i can't wait until my girls are old enough to go with me on trips. i totally believe in starting kids young in the outdoors. our generation now does not put enough emphasis on showing our children God's beautiful creation.

Amazing. I have custody of two grand daughters, ages 5 and 6. I'm not sure I would survive a trip like this with them. Kudo's to ya!

That was really fun to read. Your kids are at a really neat age. It's great that you and gramps got to spend this time with them.

I like your idea about caring less what time it is. I wore a watch the whole week on my trip and vow to keep it in the pack on my next one. That's how it should be.

Looking forward to upcoming years trip reports from you. And I also like the guys and gals at CCO. I stop in every time I'm in Ely.
