Number of Days:
We made the portage into Lower George then on into Karl and down into Long Island. Then East into Muskeg and onto Heart attack Hill !! ( what a doozy ) We made it over the Hill and into Kiskadinna and took the first camp site. Very nice site with nice sunset and rise !
What a great second day !!
We wanted an earlier start today, were going to try for Horseshoe today ! Our first portage out of Kiskadinna was only 35 rods, but straight up. Everybody laughed and called it mini Heart attack !! On into Omega to the east portage and into Henson ,east to the end of lake , then the north portage into Pillsbury, east into Allen then a 50 rod portage into Horseshoe, it was about 5:30 when we got to the first campsite across from our 20 rod portage for the morning.
Beautiful weather once again 65-70 light winds and full sunshine, Perfect !!
By the time we finished with breakfast the fog had lifted and it looked like the skies would break and the sun would shine ! We had a good south wind to push us along to our exit !
North into Caribou, up into Lizz and out to the public launch on Poplar.
This trip was everything I expected and more, still soaking it all in !!
Thanks for reading and I will answer anyones question the best I can.
I can't wait to start planning next years trip !!!
