Here we go again.

It is that time of year. I already find myself daydreaming of a return to Quetico next year. It happens every year about this time. I am at the gym and find myself thinking it is time to hit the rowing machine, often thinking of the long paddle up Agnes. While on the stair climber, I visualize the Yum Yum portage. Using various weights, I think about flipping the canoe. Using other weights, I think about lifting packs in and out of the canoe. I plan my numerous trips each year in my mind. And so it goes.

The anticipation of the joy of paddling the Q remains a constant in my life.

I couldn’t agree more! Need to be getting to the gym more though to be in better shape earlier for next year!

I am beyond excited to get back to Quetico next year! Have not been since 2019 due to the pandemic, and cannot wait until June rolls around.

We start dreaming of (and planning for) our next Quetico trip as we're driving home from the latest one!

Anticipating a 21 day group/solo the latter part of May and early June 2023 has me chomping at the bit. My paddle partner and I really enjoyed our two two-week long trips earlier this year.

Alas, logistics from Georgia and a summer family reunion force us into just one three-week long slot next year. It does add to the planning challenge, and I’m great with that.

My daily workout is all about keeping fit so I “don’t let the old man in”. An “on the calendar”, late April Little Missouri River expedition should help condition me for our Q adventure.
