Just got our second family bdub trip booked. Going from EP 50 and exiting out Poplar late July. Will be a little tougher trip, but we're looking forward to it. Will also be trying out a Northwind 20 canoe, hoping that handles a little better than the MNIII we used last time.

I've entered at both Cross Bay and Poplar before and love both areas. Your trip is on my to do list so I can see the areas that I haven't seen from Rib to Omega.
Have Fun!!

If you have a chance grab a meal at The Trail Center, top notch food!

I knew there were 20', 4 seat canoes out there but I was unaware Northstar made one. Now I'm drooling over a new canoe as our boys are getting a little big for our SR18.5 but are a few years away from being able to break up into 2 canoes. Please follow up after your trip and let us know what you thought of the canoe.

We did a variation of that trip (in reverse ) last spring. Rainy Day people

Have fun! Be sure to hit one of the sandy beach areas on Long Island Lake.

We plan to do our pre and post trip meals at Trail Center. Also pick up a few camp food items from them.

Our family of 5 (kids 10, 8 & 5) rented a Northstar 20 last summer. The boat is huge, but still turns an a dime! I loved paddling that boat and we nicknamed it "The Battleship".

Have fun - wish we were doing another family trip, but this year is a Western adventure: hitting south Dakota, Wyoming, Montana, and North Dakota. Kids wanted to go back to BWCA - but we are going to hit up lots of cool places and raft the MO Breaks. Hope your trip is awesome.
