gmaps says a mere 1026 miles - just 17 hr and 17 min. Wish I could.

Almost as far as my 1035 miles :) It's my one chance of the year to meet some of these people. Oddly enough, in all my trips I've only run into a couple out in the BW.

Now I don't feel as bad. I'm only 950 miles. Lol. Thanks for invite. Would enjoy the visit and meeting good folks. If any of you are tripping next June I'll be the one wearing my Filson ball cap and a huge smile.

Cheers

Well you should be there then; we'll expect you promptly at 5:30 :)

Sometimes the timing works out, but most of the time I miss people by a day or two on entry/exit.

I suppose I should; no excuses right? Sure would be neat to run into someone while up there.

Good to know... I’ve never eaten there. Still planning to be there, Steve.
 
09/09/2021 08:23PM  
Looking forward to it, Ben. Just found out today they opened my EP - #37.

Speckled, are you coming for the best burger?

Only 20 miles for me. I'll be there.

Ten miles for me but I’ve got to watch my grandkids soccer game. It’s the six year old congdon minis vs the nine year old denfeld giants, should be good

It will be good to see you, Ginny

Enjoy watching the grandkids, J. I got to see a couple of mine for the first time in 2 years this summer.
 
09/12/2021 04:49PM  
Wish you were able to make it, Sheryl. Hope you are doing better.
 
09/12/2021 04:50PM

I just saw this post! I can be there by 10 tonight. Please wait for me! (Kidding!)

Sorry to miss it. Who are the people in the photo (BWCA monikers)?
 
09/12/2021 07:20PM  

Better picture...

Then I thought I’d tell some stories...
 
09/12/2021 07:28PM  
I should have said we’re waiting for 99 on the second picture.

In spite of what nctry said and captured in that last photo, I really enjoyed the first 49 of the 179 stories he told. Just kidding. Glad I had a chance see old (or should that be previously-met) bwca friends and meet a new one (Paul).

My hamburger was delicious!

Have a great trip Boonie. One of these years I’ll be able to meet you. Only one more year of high school soccer left for big duckling then I should have more free time in the fall. At least for a few years until 2 year old Bruin gets us into crazy schedules.
 
09/13/2021 07:20AM  
It always amazes me the people we meet throughout our lives. But especially now I think, man... to have been able to paddle with everyone I’ve met! But whether paddling or eating together, indulging in friendships is a very fortunate thing.

It was a surprise to see TB... he took care of our bill, so the rest made sure the staff at Gronk's got rewarded too. I hope Boonie has a great trip... and was it ever nice to see inspector 13.

Ginny... oh man, what a great gal. This lady is a lot like Spartan2 in that she has a lot of class and grace. Portage99, maybe another time. Dman also...

Boonie does this about every year. Steve, have a great trip and we'll see ya next fall!
 
09/13/2021 10:35AM  
Did you get any pictures of the burgers? :)
 
09/13/2021 05:10PM  
Thanks to all. It was a good meeting. Nice to meet TB after all these years and visit again with Steve, Ben, and Ginny.

Sorry I could not make it the Twin Ports this past weekend. It would have been great to see some of the people who are active on this forum again. Hopefully next year.

Have a great trip Boonie!

Thanks Paul!

See you in Grand Marais when your trip ends Steve.

That's what happened when they tried speaking into your shoe.
