WOW what a great story, you don't hear about that sort of kindness these days very often

What a thought it would be if there were more people like that... :)
Thanks for sharing!
Excellent trip report and kudos to campcook184 and their group for restoring my faith in the kindness of strangers!!!!!
Feel good trip report of the year!!! Thank you for sharing your experience.
quote Goby: "Faith in humanity restored by your trip report."
Yes we did get the fork and knife, campcook184! Thanks again so much to your group for all the help you provided to us. As mentioned in the report, it really made our trip memorable.
Did you get your fork and knife?? Glad you enjoyed the site :-)
Good story. Remember to pay it forward.
wow! what cool people! I grew up 1 block from there and went to school there. My parents still live down the road. Thanks for sharing that neat story.
Faith in humanity restored by your trip report.
While we pray for good weather , in hindsight, nobody ever remembers the trip where nothing went wrong. It is the struggles and the storms... And the overcoming... That makes for the best memories.
I say all that at my own peril. My son and I are leaving Monday for the BWCA.
What a wonderful story! It's really wonderful to know that people like that share our world with us.
Glad you liked the story, Mocha. I've now made 20 different trips to canoe country and this is the coolest thing that's happened to me in all of those trips. When these people helped us I was so grateful and so fatigued that it was all I could do to hold back tears. I'm still fighting them (and losing) as I think of it now a week later.
what a wonderful trip for your group! IMO...your situation and the acts of kindness by fellow campers is what the BW is mostly about. can't say ALL cuz someone is bound to challenge that!
this experience will stick with the youth in your group forever and someday they will have the opportunity to 'pay it forward' whether it's in the BW or some other place in the world.
thanks for sharing.
