Thanks for the report. We'll be taking the tow to American Point in August.

Great trip and route, this was my first trip except I went to Knife by way of Ester and Hanson. If I am not mistaken the spot outside the first campsite on Ottertrack is real close to a nice walleye spot.

My camera is in a sealed waterproof case around my neck, might want to look into that.

I was on Saganaga at the same time. If I am not mistaken the French Canadians that paddled by you came right by us and talked to my grandpa. They are headed for Alaska. Yes you read that correctly.

Good trip.
It won't be long until the boy goes on his own with some buddies...

I hope that is the case. As I was talking to the staff at Seagull Outfitters I thought it would be a great summer job during college.
