Thanks for your report. Meeds portage was the first long portage that my son did without stopping (and volunteered to carry the heavier pack) so I have fond memories of it. We have traveled all of that route, just never all on the same trip.
We went through Lizz last year, and this year when we decided to make another trip into the BWCA permits were hard to come by. Lizz #47 no permits available, Meeds entry #48 had all 4 available. It was a fun challenge.
