Trip Introduction:
Three generation wife's Dad and Uncle, whose first trip to BWCA was about 50 years ago, my 16 y/o son, and me. The last 3 or 4 trips have been into Seagull, easy paddle with no portages. The thought was to do another portaging trip more like the old days.
Day 1 of 5
Wednesday, July 28, 2010

Arrived at Kawishiwi Lodge late afternoon, unloaded our stuff and parked the vehicle. We would be staying in the bunkhouse, and heading out early the next morning. In other trips to BWCA, it was an early, early start for the 7 or 8 hour drive, then immediately into the water. I have to say that made for a long day. The extra cost for the night's stay was worth it, not only for the break, but paddling out first thing in the AM was quite pleasant. We spent a leisurely evening on the dock, did some repacking/reorganizing, and eating.
