Report


Yessir....got up to the Boundary Waters Wilderness Canoe Area again but this time in a canoe. Strung Out brought the canoe and Alex rented a kayak at REI and off we voyaged in the Sioux Hustler area. Put in on the Little sioux River and had three nights up in the Glory. Got some real nice sleep in the hammock whilst being bathed in the glimmer of the Full Moon. Loons cried and sang all night and greeted us when the morning came. Whoooooooo Buddy)))))) Shug
