Trip Introduction:
This trip was taken by myself and my friend. We were both 18 at the time and very eager to explore the BWCAW again. Taken the day after the graduation, we wanted to enjoy our freedom and celebrate the last summer before we went to college. We tried to incorporate some easy, well-known parts, along with rougher and less maintained parts.
Day 1 of 7
Saturday, June 06, 2009

This was the day we drove up to the BWCAW from our houses in the suburbs of Chicago. The day before this we had graduated, attended a senior party that lasted till 4 A.M. this day, slept for a few hours and then left. We got on the road at noon and got to Jordan's Outfitters around 9:00 P.M. As a side note, we were both pleased with the service we received here before and after the trip. We went into Ely for some DQ, talked about how excited we were for our trip, and went to bed.
