It was 18 yrs ago this morning that I had my worst bwca experience. One of my best friends drowned on knife lake. RIP Joe Corbin. Please wear your PFDs

Headed in for a trip in a week. I keep reminding my trip partners that PFDs at all times is the way to go, and keep getting the "relax we know how to swim" response. Sorry for your loss.

I am also sorry for your loss. I am also so thankful that you have shared this story many times over the years. I share this story when I am preparing for a trip.

Very sad you lost your friend. Joe looked like he could handle just about anything life throws his way. Which drives the point home...cold water kills.

I still think of you and your story every time I'm near that area of Knife. Sorry for your loss.

Just on my way home from a trip and I'm still amazed how few PFD's I see.

I was having my son Ryan 1st birthday party 18 years ago when you you called and told me the tragic news. Thinking about you, Joe and what a hard day it must be for his father. RIP Joe.

Did you (or someone else in your party) write up a story of this event in the BWJ?
