Trip Introduction:
For the third year in a row, my wife and I, accompanied by my parents, decided to take a relaxing trip to BWCA. We wished to do more paddling than we had done on previous trips so we opted for an ambitious but not too strenuous loop from Seagull to Round Lake via Ogish, Gabi, Little Sag, Crooked, and Tuscarora. We also planned a long day trip to Kekakabic and back that turned out to be quite an adventure.
Day 1 of 10
Tuesday, August 12, 2008

On Monday bright and early, the four of us left Western Maryland with our sights set on being in Grand Marais by Tuesday evening. We had flown into Duluth and Minneapolis on previous trips but this time decided on taking the "adventure" of driving 2 consecutive 12 hour days. After a night spent outside of Chicago, we made it to Minnesota and stopped at Sven's for a pre-trip meal (they wouldn't be open on our way out). Bellies now full, we arrived at Hungry Jack Outfitters sometime around sundown. We settled into our bunks and crawled into bed, falling asleep to the sweet calls of the loons nearby.
