Sounds like you had a good trip. Don't get rid of that Grumman, it comes in handy on big lake base camping trips like that one. Do invest in a roof system. Those of us over in the gear forum can help you there.

Glad you got out there, and you're right - the second trip will go much more smoothly. I hope you get to go for a little longer next time, so there's a better chance of some better weather.

Thanks. We've got four trips done now, just finally getting them written up.

Glad you had fun. We had the same entry point a week later. And we had wind too! It was our first time and it is a bit scary to be on a big lake in a canoe and the wind whips up. I didn't know the weather changes so fast up north! Thanks for the report.

Seagull can kick up some nasty seas at times. Beautiful place, though. Funny, one of the the only snakes I've seen in the BWCAW was on an island on Seagull. John and Rose at Cross River certainly cook a good breakfast don't they? Glad you had a good time!

I'm proud of you guys. You stretched a bit and if you will keep stretching you will find things go more smoothly from planning to packing to paddling. You just can't control the weather.
