Trip Introduction:
I got pulled out to go on another trip, WooHoo!!!


Well that didn't take long, I was put out for some group with kids to pick me up. They throw me in the back of a Suburban and drove to Ely. I was woken up the next morning as they were unloading all their gear at Lake One. I was strapped on (Yes, I'm not getting Farted on this Trip!!).

Lots of sun and swimming over the next few days on Lake Insula.

After coming back from the BWCA I was given to some chic with talk of an ALL GIRL TRIP???  ...Did I just get Lucky or what!
