Once there was enough daylight, we left our friendly fire and combed the island searching high and low for our fuzzy visitor. He was finally gone and we convinced ourselves that we could finally get some sleep. Eventually we all woke up, picked up the garbage, packed our things and headed out later that afternoon. We were amazed how one animal could inhale so much food in one sitting, he ate almost everything he had. We replayed the previous evening’s event countless times on the way out, making fun of each other and our cowardly ways. Like in many aspects of life, it seems a young man has to learn some things the “hard way” and we definitely learned a lot from our shortened trip. Our one motivation on the way out was to make it down to Two Harbors before the liquor store closed. Our bosses thought we were still in the BWCA, so in typical 21yr old fashion, we stocked up, and immediately cracked opened the cans and mixed our cocktails once we were home. We had our 1st Bdubs video to watch…and besides; we still had two days to unpack.
