I saw this story in a few different places today. Cool that she called it out.

Julia-Louis Dreyfus loves the BW and I love her right back. She's a comedy genius.

I'm thinking how fun it would be to run into her and share a portage. Surreal, but how cool would that be?

Agree! She’s pretty awesome!

I completely agree. Not only that, but she has a lovely singing voice. A number of years ago she had a show, Watching Ellie, on which she played a jazz singer. She did all of her own singing, which I enjoyed immensely.

JLD is welcome on any canoe trip that I take. :)

Totally OT, but Cary Griffith randomly sat down by me last night at a BWAC dinner (he was keynote speaker). It was surreal, like encountering JLD on a portage. Regular guy doing regular stuff. Really cool.

If I met her in the BWCA the first thing would be to ask her for a dance. Remember the Seinfeld episode she danced in?

I have always been a fan. I obviously like the BW.

Am I too skeptical? The BW now has the mining controversy. She is from Hollywood. Is there a chance that this might be political?

That said, I will be keeping an eye out for her on the portages.

I had the good fortune to meet Julia-Louis Dreyfus and her husband and friends in the BWCAW this past September. I had gone ahead and set up my hot tent with wood stove a couple of days before they were expected to meet up at my location. I had lots of wood split and ready for the wood stove. The weather was around 35° and light spitting rain on and off again, with a bit of wind. The tent was about 80° when they arrived a bit chilled. We had lunch and spoke of the threats to the BWCAW and about Justine Kerfoots book, and small talk. The picture is after lunch in the warm tent.



After they left to go out of the BWCAW, I struck Camp and paddled out. We all met for supper at trail center that evening.

I am thankful when people speak well about their experiences in the BWCAW.

OMG, you lucky duck! So cool too that you could provide them with lunch in a warm tent.

The lake we met on is one of my personal favorites, If there had been time and better weather a tour around the lake may have afforded some moose viewing.

PaddlinMadeline PM me at dancooke@cookecustom sewing if you want the name of the lake.

Dan, that's really something. Hopefully they will return to do a full on canoe camping trip of their own.

Mocha: "Who were the other folks on their trip?"

Tom H. and Karin (sp) from Duluth set up the trip after taking Michael L. on a trip the year before. Michael's wife Jamie who had been studying up on the area reading Justine Kerfoots book, she had many insightful questions. Julia's husband Brad H. was along as well.

I believe they were enjoying the rigors of the late September day trips into the BWCAW and spending nights in some of the different lodges along the trail. Able to travel without folks pestering them for selfies and such. I only took a few pictures with their permission, none with me in the frame.

I’d like to run into them on a portage with my dog STELLA!

So cool! I love her on VEEP.
