One vote per BWCA.com member.
Mention if you've been to (and camped), at previous BW Jamborees, as your vote will count as double.
Voting ends at 9:00 Sunday 12/8/19.

We will rendezvous, the evening of Sunday, June 14, 2020.
Vote A, or B....

Just a couple of questions, 9:00 am or pm?

What do you see as difference between the lakes?

I've been wanting to do the Jamboree for a long time. I am going on a cruise in May as part of my marital requirements which might preclude my ability to go.

I'm a happy that this sort of stuff still happens in the snowflake age!

PM.
I think lake A has more camp worthy shoreline, but more shallow.
I think lake B follows a fault line, and may be deep and hold trout.
But who knows ?

Lake A looks easier to get to while B looks like it is deeper water and more interesting. I would rather spend time exploring B.
 
12/08/2019 06:53AM
A looks great but if too shallow for fish then it would be a huge disappointment. I'd go with B but tend to want to see both.

Why not a double bushwhack? Meet up on B then after 2 night go as a group to A then crash out together? It would make clearing trail and shuttling gear much easier. It could also develop some good stories and camaraderie.

I vote A, although I am not sure why...
I have never been to a Jamboree, but I will be in the park during this one. My current plans would have me a few days paddle away from that lake on the 14th, but it is still just a plan, and I am solo. Looking at route options that might put me in the neighborhood, and it is an area I haven't explored.

I've decided to vote B.
I have a partner who's "all in", but physically getting there, is the least of my hurdles.
If I go, I plan to visit both lakes.

Out of all these bushwacker jamboree's you've done how many people have made it to the designated lake including yourself?

I'm looking at this one and wondering where would one enter from? Gunflint, Prairie?

This would be cool if done in the BWCA too.

Well 1st one (2005) only Hexnymph & crew made it (6 in all).
My group was so close, that Hex heard my Grumman banging in the brush. Group dynamics were our downfall.

Second one (2010), 5 groups made it.
14 in all, as I recall, including myself.

Third one (2015).
Only Magic Paddler (solo)
& some day trippers that don't count.

This wouldn't legally work, in the BWCA. Too many restrictions. Can't gather with more than 9, for starters.
Designated campsites etc....

Whoof! After looking at the maps more closely, this indeed is a challenge. You cannot get to it from Kash creek since all the white on the map is exposed granite which means cliffs. You will have to follow the low spots or folds in geography to get to the lake which means coming out of Kawnipi. You will need to get to the unnamed lake that is in between lake A and B then follow the low land into lake B. Definately a real bushwhackers Jamboree.

Got rid of my Bushwacker vehicle or else I would have tried.

I think B looks swell. I'll vote B.

Oh, and I've attended the 2005 and 2010 Jamboree.

Don't suppose I get to vote because - for sure I will not be going but, I request that you carry SPOTs or InReach and share your connection with me so I can follow along. Magic Paddler and Ben (Nctry) can vouch for me. I am not your average evil stalker, just an innocent old grandma who loves to watch the paddle travelers. The timing of this Jamboree is perfect. I will have finished the Memorial Weekend watching and not have started the September Kruger-Waddell event mania.
