Trip Introduction:
Our sophomore year into BWCA trip planning and exploration. Another great trip including me, Dan, Mike, and Josh into the beautiful boundary waters canoe area. This trip proved much tougher than the last when it was all said and done our crew ended up logging over 120 miles total going from lake one across the distance of Knife lake around American point and back. It was a strenuous but good trip. Excellent weather week 1 but the last 5 or so days nothing but clouds and rain. Also we ate what was close to a ration of scraps the last few days. Overall good trip but glad to get some fuller stomachs and back to civilization.
