Dates - Sept 22nd - 24th, 2023

Arrival - Anytime Friday
Departure by 1pm Sunday

Potluck : 2pm on Saturday Sept 23rd.

LOCATION: Marshview Group Campsite (Barn Group camp) - Medina, MN
Map Link

Plenty of space to spread out and camp. Some people set their hammocks under the barn.

Well-behaved dogs are allowed.

*POTLUCK will be on Saturday afternoon at 2pm. – Please bring a dish to share! The variety of food is unbelievable! Many people cook on-site. There are no grills. There are fire rings with grates. Bring what you need to prepare your food.

WHAT'S AT CAMP:
*Barn shelter with electricity. (Electricity is not for camper hookup.)

*A water pump is located on-site. There is a latrine building without running water.

*Picnic tables, yes. BYO chairs.

*There are showers down the road at Baker Park. They should be open weather permitting.

*LOTS OF BWCA.COM FRIENDS TO SHARE STORIES WITH!!!

PADDLING:
Feel free to bring your canoes or kayaks and your fishing gear. There is no lake to put in by the site but you can go to Lake Independence or over to Lake Rebecca to paddle.

HOUSEKEEPING REMINDERS-
*Please Leave no Trace!
*You are responsible for yourself, your family and your guests when it comes to keeping a clean camp. This includes the latrine building and things left (tossed) in the woods.
*Recycling bins are available for all recyclables.
*Garbage cans are on site so you don't need to pack-it-out.

ANOTHER NOTE-
If you are someone who wants to go to bed early or sleep in late, it is recommended you camp away from the fire pits. Socializing tends to go on around the fire pits both late into the night and early in the morning.

RSVP: Just post here to get an idea of the numbers coming.

COST: Donation box to cover group camp rental.

This is great news! Thanks for reserving a site at Baker Lake and thanks to those that make the campout happen! I’m looking forward to connecting with everyone this fall!
 
03/13/2023 06:32PM  
Replying so that I can keep track of this at it gets closer.

On my calendar too! Thanks Adam. Is it at the Barn site again?
 
03/24/2023 09:19AM  
I am planning on making it this year, looking forward to seeing you all.

Hahaha.... me attending keeps the crowds down. It would be great to see you there Mark! Would love to hear how big your fleet of canoes is getting. I promise to be well fed before I come down... haha! (Marks wife never lets him paddle with me. She was afraid I’d eat him. Hence, now I’m known to them as cannibal Ben).

Stumpy... it would be great to see you there. We’ve enjoyed your presence before and you're much missed I know.

Last year, also our late friend Mitch’s significant other was there to hear stories and such of his impact. She was amazed, I think!

Thanks Adam for reviving a tradition. Met some great new folks last year and caught up with some great old friends. Never take your canoeing friends for granted. This group is the real deal.

It’s worth attending just to sample Karen’s Pumpkin Drop Cake prepared in a Dutch Oven. It goes quickly though!

Oh my goodness. Big duckling was in middle school in that picture and she’s graduating next month. That was a fun day.

Definitely looking to make it so I can catch up with old friends and meet new ones in person that I only know on the internet.

The ducklings always had a blast and I’m sure Bruin will too.

I’m not coaching HS soccer anymore so the odds are definitely higher that I can make it.

Oh yes! I think I’m planning on coming, just me, and my littlest tent… will plan to share how I DIDN’T die on the Border Route Trail 2022 (Since so many of you were there last year on the lead up)… but will share some amazing take-aways from camping/hiking in mid-October, as well as crossing two beaver dams, football field length in size in 40 degree water, up to waist/chest deep while it was raining and snowing most of our trip!

Couple questions regarding this if you don't mind.

- What has the past turnout numbers been about?

- Dog's allowed?

- RSVP on here?

- So everyone pitches a tent near the barn? Are there any cabins nearby to rent instead?

- Is it a potluck or is everything catered? Does it cost anything?

- Also is there like a Q&A for these events or have they just been going on so long that everyone already knows what is up?

I'm thinking I'll go to my first one since, by
dumb luck, it's sandwiched between my two
fall trips this year.

Seem to recall there has been a drawing for misc camping related items at the wing weekends, is that still a thing and if so, who collects those items?

Mocha: "Seem to recall there has been a drawing for misc camping related items at the wing weekends, is that still a thing and if so, who collects those items?"
Recently the drawings have just included some nice BWCA.com merchandise Adam has brought.

In the past there were donated gear auctions and prize raffles associated with fundraisers to help families of BWCA.com members that passed away. Unfortunately those type of events haven’t happened in many years due to a large amount of work that fell onto just a few individuals.

There have been “Free” piles of camping gear at most Wing events though.

Hey, I just found out about this and I happen to be camping at Interstate State Park that week and weekend. I might have to portage west over the river and check this out.

I think you should…. You’ll wonder why you didn’t just change your plans to camp with us the whole weekend.

I will be there during the day(s) only. I live only a couple minutes away and as much as I like camping, a comfortable bed is too much of a draw :).

As an intermittent BWCA.com visitor, I was sad that I found out about this event AFTER last year's was held (fun seeing friends in pics, though). I am happy to hear it is annually at Baker.

Adam, I have something that could help out this event. I will contact you.
 
08/06/2023 08:30PM  
Ben, if it was just me, that's exactly what I'd do, I even have a bed rigged up for the back of my truck. But my wife is coming and she wants to sleep in her hammock. It has 4 tires under her, an air conditioner above her, and it sleeps eight. And it's a real bitch to portage.

Ok Trix, just did a quick search of pubs in Ireland. There's one called "the moose". Seems appropriate. I know, it's a big country. Just knowing you'll be with us in spirit is enough . My wife really wants to go to Ireland so maybe we'll get some ideas from you at next wing nite.

Looking for someone from southern MN going to wing weekend that could bring some donation items to the event. I have them all packed up in a pack but can’t make it to the event. Any assistance is appreciated. :)
 
09/12/2023 09:43AM  
Will see what happens, will be up north that week before, plus Lisa works that weekend, but I'll try and make it
 
09/13/2023 10:53AM  
Driving to Ely Sunday with a week based on Disappointment. I will show up for the wing Friday night (weather/rain a deciding point) then I will get a room and see you on Saturday. Looking forward to a fun time.
Mocha, I will be passing through the Twin Cities from Des Moines around 11-12 Sunday. I could meet along the I-35 corridor if that works for you.
 
09/13/2023 02:41PM  
Thanks for the offer. I got it taken care of this morning. Your offer would have worked out perfectly.

If there is need, I have a generator that can handle a load… but so far it hasn’t been necessary… I even had a fridge there last year.

09/19/2023 05:05PM  
We have a barn to go to if the rains persist… I may bring a 10 x 20 shelter for near the fire pit area… I’ve also got two boxes of stuff donated by mocha … I hope people aren’t going to let rain dampen much… I understand coming from long distances are tough when foul weather is forecasted. Our most memorable camp outs have been wet!!!
 
09/20/2023 10:13AM  
So, Saturday into Sunday might be the rainiest. I’m thinking Friday night will be the better fire night. But it should be warm enough...
 
09/20/2023 10:24AM  
I had to add... having coffee with my sister. She asked why canoers worried about rain. I told her we’re like a water dog... they see a lake or a puddle and in they go. Squirt em with a hose and it’s like giving a cat a bath. But there’s always the dogs that will play in a sprinkler…

Nice, I will be putting smoking some ribs for the pot luck.
 
09/21/2023 09:59AM  
I made up a batch of my chicken white chili it's in the freezer now and my wife made a loaf of beer bread for the potluck.

I also picked up about 48 paper plates and about 50 paper bowls and I think I got enough plasticware.

I am bummed. I had a reality check today that my work event is going to run so late on Saturday, that the potluck would be winding down by the time I would be able to get from Eagan to Roseville to Medina. Ugh! I'll miss seeing everyone...but will watch for photos.
 
09/21/2023 10:36AM  
I could bring a couple gallons of fresh pressed cider if there will be a cooler or fridge. Don't think I have room in the car for my big cooler.
 
09/21/2023 02:05PM  
A couple of questions as I plan to attend the pot luck

1. What to bring - is there something that is usually lacking or on the other hand something to avoid since everyone else brings it?
2. Is there anyone that will be there that use hippies and wading boots that would be able to drag them along? I've read about them but have never really seen them in person. Just curious as just pictures a lot of times don't really convey what something feels like, weights, etc.

I'll be missing it this year. I'll be getting ready for an October trip with mooseplums and my son. Kind of a last minute thing that's been coming together the last couple days. Not even sure where we're going yet.

Enjoy the trip wherever you go in, my friend!

Alas, I will not be attending myself this year. Sorry to disappoint Zulu that I won't be there to make the Pumpkin dump cake in person. However, the recipe is posted here on the board by myself under Recipes: Desserts.
If you are on the fence about going, my advice is: just do it! Go! What have you got to lose? I for one have met new people and made lifelong friends from some great folks I met on the Internet! You won't regret it! Have a great weekend everyone! Looking forward to photos!

You or anyone (not sure where you would be coming from) but if Saturday your busy, there’s always Friday night camp fire. MN Green brought a fair amount of wood... and actually we’re here all day tomorrow (Friday). I’m here now and tony figures he’ll be here after work yet tonight...
Dogwoodgirl... I’ll email you about a question you had...
 
09/21/2023 10:29PM  
I’m still planning on coming. If I survived the BRT in October when it was freezing rain and snowing on us the entire time, I can surely come join you guys with a DRY BARN to boot! :-) Not sure what I’ll bring yet, maybe tortilla chips and cowboy caviar?

I’ll be coming Saturday.

Cricket, no, usually nobody even shares what they’re going to bring. But somehow it always works out.

Ben did you have one slice of bacon with that pancake this morning?
 
09/22/2023 01:32PM  
Yes I did… did not splurge with two… nope!
You need to tell work you need to miss the meeting due to an eye problem. Like, you can’t see yourself attending.
 
09/22/2023 02:11PM  
The Wingnight has begun! Some great BWCA.com merchandise and some donated camping items will be raffled off on Saturday. We are signing a paddle for our member Merganser who passed away right after he left Wingnight last year.
Lots of Firewood for both nights. Saturday Potluck. A nice dry barn for shelter. Plenty of room for tents. The Fall foliage is in peak color. Hiking trails adjacent and nearby paddling.
Friendly people and dogs are arriving now.
I’m looking forward to connecting with members and hearing about their adventures. You should come and camp or come for just the Potluck on Saturday.


 
09/22/2023 03:02PM  
A few more prizes arrived for the raffle including a brand new pair of beautiful Old Town Canoe Paddles!
Pizza and fresh hand pressed cider is here now if you hurry. It’s free to enter raffle.

Greetings to all in attendance! I'll be there in spirit but a trip from the west for this is slightly too much, Especially since the traveling done in the last several months. Including my first foray into the "Q". Trip report coming, though it might just be a photo diary.
Keep this going! I'll make it one year for sure. I don't want to brave the pre-August bugs but a mid-September trip sound doable. And a stop at this event on the way out would be mandatory!.
PS I'll be need'in a hammock spot.
Cheers

I’m so bummed that I won’t be there today, but I get to spend it with my brother that lives in Costa Rica. I picked him up at the airport last night and we are heading to Winona today to watch his son play soccer for St Johns. I did give my brother a hard time for picking this weekend as the one he came home for.

Looking forward to stories and photos. The set up pics from last night bring back some great wing night memories.

Have fun everyone.

Pictures look great & I like that memorial paddle you made! Unless I roll in late tonight I’m not going to make it after all. Mitch “Dicecupmaker”s brother is hosting an event this afternoon. I think of the BWCA.com group often & hope to see you next year.

It'll be like Burning Man. You won't get out for weeks. Hope you've forwarded your mail :)

Thanks for the encouragement! Haha! Took a late night walk… seems ok… good drainage. Wow, that was a lot of rain!

Had a great time, thanks everyone. 3.5 inches in Duluth so far, maybe I left at a good time.

Zulu - Tony…
This is the fan I had last night. It’s USB rechargeable but it lasted from 10pm to 7am on the low setting. Worked great.

For those that like a little breeze blowing in their face, or white noise…

A great trip into the BWCA with fall colors was topped off with fireside chats and fantastic food. Thanks for all I have learned and the opportunity to be part of community.

I have a pair of Eddie Bauer rain pants someone left."
I think those may have been a donated item.

FYI…I didn’t donate any rainpants

Thanks for the pix. Just returned from hiking the BRT around Topper and Sock and Mucker Lakes. Paddling to Canoe Lake and Johnson Falls. I'll make it to one of these someday.

I’m hoping in the future more young people will come. It was a rewarding experience to meet John Galt. A very respectful and adventurous person...
Thanks John for coming...

It was great meeting some members for the first time and catching up with others! The weather was somewhat accommodating. The food was great!

Thanks to everyone for showing up, as well as, those who sent or brought raffle or giveaway items, firewood, and community gear!

Looking forward to next year.
