On the way to Minnesota I stopped at the Sylvania Wilderness for the night. I'd never been there but my son had and also Dogwoodgirl's report increased my interest. I had heard it described as a mini Boundary Waters. They are alike in some ways but not in others. I've posted a comment on the “Other Canoe Camping Locations” forum. Once in Ely I went to Voyageur North, got my permit, rented a Spot PLB and got settled in the bunk house.
