Trip Introduction:


As many of you know, I spent last weekend sleeping in -10 degrees with my good friends in the frozen Boundary Waters on the Minnesota/Canadian Border. These border waters hold a very special place for me, and my family. These are my final thoughts on winter camping - and SURPRISE - a new enterprise of mine - "". A new blog that is dedicated to my experiences camping, gear, and site reviews, and so much more. I hope you all enjoy!
