One week from today, our group of four will be on Kawnipi Lake. We'll have put in at Beaverhouse on July 10th and will have paddled the length of Quetico Lake, done the Yeh to Lonely portage and come through the Poet's Chain.

Once we get to Kawnipi, we'll take a layover day (or two) for some re-charging of the batteries and hopefully some bigtime walleye fishing.

After Kawnipi, we'll either (preferably) head down the Falls Chain to Saganagons, then down the Man Chain to exit at PP or we'll go down Agnes.

Really looking forward to the trip.

No. We're driving to International Falls and meeting another couple (sister and brother-in-law of a business friend of mine) who will ride with us to Beaverhouse, then drive our vehicle back to I-Falls. Sometime during the week, they'll drive it down to Ely and park it at the Moose Lake landing for us.

Sounds like a pretty fun trip. Have you figured out how many miles you'll be paddling?

I haven't gotten to that point yet. Maybe my buddy has, but I haven't. I'm going to guess it will be somewhere around 100 miles, but after I spend a little time with the maps this week, I'll let you know. A hundred miles over eight days ought to be enough, eh?

That is a good bit of paddling. Nice to have friends that support your habit though. Have a good trip!
