Hi all
It's getting nearly a month away for my first solo bwca trip. I'm getting the last few things together. I'll be receiving my mountain house meals today in the mail. Bought my liquid bandaid and neosporin last night. Any of you getting ready and overly excited?
Mike

Always get excited for a trip, must be the kid in me, nine to ten days, going in on Ram May 11th. Have a great time on your trip and always wear your life jacket water will be very cold.

Just over a month for my first trip. Its a group solo with Luft. I am getting excited. I already pulled out the gear for the trip. Then in August I get to take a newbie to the bwca. She is already getting excited. It will be fun seeing the bwca through a newbies eyes.

Sounds like fun. Got my meals in the mail. Fits great in the bear barrel. I'm ready!

Wear your life jacket, stay close to shore, keep your ditch kit on you, and have fun! Do whatever you want!

And, don't forget to report back here. :).

34 days for me! I'm done with finals week on May 9, then work a full 40 hours through May 14. On the 14th I head home to grab the canoe and pack. Entry day is May 17. Gonna be the fastest I've ever packed for a trip!

Unbelievably excited though!

May 4th for me, just a short three night solo into EP 26. Moving into a new house May 18th, and convinced the wife to let me go.

I forgot to mention that mine's not until Sept., but I've been overly excited anyway. I was when I was planning it in the winter, getting the permit and reservations made. I will be again when it's time to do the food and gear.

I'm headed in for a 5 day solo this coming Friday. Probably in the Ely area as the ice is out there but haven't ruled out Sawbill or Gunflint as options.

I haven't even started pulling gear together! I like to do fly by the seat of my pants type trips at the end of April if the ice is out as a shake down for my extended solos in May. Forces me to get my gear out and dust off the cobwebs.

I know I'll be all ready for my "group solo" with Jeepgirl in May if I get everything pulled out now for this trip.

I just need to soak my clothing in permethrin sometime today and the rest should be easy to pull together.

Maybe I'll see you out there, Luft...I'll also be heading in on Friday from Ely or thereabouts. Where? Don't know yet....plenty of permits still available. :)
