Tuesday, June 15, 2010

After work, 5 of us leave the Twin Cities in minivan with 2 canoes atop for the North Shore. Stop at Subway in Cloquet for supper. Isaiah (2nd son) calls on phone to declare: "You moron, you forgot the food!" And I did. I really did. The 5gal bucket with all of my repackaged food is next to the piano... and a few refrigerated items are still in the fridge. I can't believe I did that; beside myself. I was so proud of myself, for how easy our departure was... for how organized I was. And now I did this to the rest of the group. Uff da x 8. Lisa (my wonderful wife) agrees to drive north while we drive south; we meet at Rock Creek... we grab the food... then head north again over 2 hrs delayed. Lisa saved the day. We arrive at Sawbill Campground after midnight, where the remaining 4 of our group of 9 wait. Pitch tent fast and start sleeping.
