Nice report. Few things I noticed when reading. I was about to tell you that Juno is an awesome Walleye lake but it appears you found that out. Are sardines allowed. I've always wondered about them. I always thought that they weren't. And Cormac McCarthy wrote one of my favorite books in The Road. Never read anything else by him though. I'm a big fan of post apocalyptic books so that is the only reason I ever picked it up. Sounds like a solid trip though.

Great report!

Enjoyed your trip report. The comments about the solo experience are right in line with the experience as we have discussed it on the solo tripping forum. Nothing quite like a little Cormac.

Note to x2jmorris: Try "Blood Meridian" (about the Glanton gang) or "Child of God". Not exactly post-apocalyptic, but . . .somewhat the same "feel".

I will look into them Boonie. Thanks.

Neat trip report, thanks! Would recommend against leaving fish cleanings that close to a campsite, though.

I enjoyed your trip report. Thanks for sharing.

Just a sidenote. Cans are not allowed for food in the BWCAW and so I believe that a can of sardines in their original tin would be against the rules.

Second the endorsement of "Blood Meridian"- not an easy read but one of the greatest novels by a living American writer.

"For the first couple days, the noise of society is still in your brain. But after a couple days it will fade, and you can tune in with the sights, the sounds, and most importantly the energy of the place."

So true. I call it "becoming the critter" and I become more alert and grateful.

Sounds like a good trip. I'm always looking for a good read while in the wilderness (and not in the wilderness for that matter) so maybe I'll add Cormac McCarthy to the list.
