Four years ago, I did the Memory Lane portages. I found them a full days travel double portaging.

Been paddling up there for fifty years. Never heard of them. Could you be more specific?

Death march between Delahey and Conmee. Memory Lane between Poohbah and William.

My wife and I did the Death March portage last year on day 6 of a 10-day trip. We single-walk portages, and from Delahey to Conmee took us less than 2.5 hours. We had done the portage 30 years earlier, and were very pleased with the improvements in the portage. Comments here.

We had hoped to do Memory Lane this year, but weather and BWCA.com forum comments about that portage led us to change our proposed route.

On my stay on Poohbah this year, I went over and checked out the portage. It was pretty overgrown . Thought about taking it down to William, but got discouraged looking at the first few hundred feet.

My son was in the area this summer, but only did the Death March portage. He thought your idea would be doable, though tough. He said the Death March portage was long and hot for them, but surprisingly decent condition as portages go. Their biggest challenge was having enough water.
