Monday, August 24, 2009

We were about 30 minutes late to the outfitters thanks to me forgetting the eggs in the fridge but oh well. Once we arrived at the outfitters we were all roaring to go and loaded our stuff up into the Vnorth van. The ride to the entry point seemed like it was an hour long due to the anticipation. Upon arrival we quickly ran the 160 rod portage to the river and cheerfully loaded the canoes and took off. Because we had two new people we decided to camp at the first lake out of Moose River which was Nina Moose. The campsite across the lake on the point was a delightful site with nice tent spots. It rained and was quite windy that night but all was well.
