Trip Introduction:
I've been planning a trip to the Big Island Lake Wilderness ever since Cheesehead went there and posted information on it. Three times I planned it and had to postpone it. Finally I planned for a week beginning October 6. Then I was offered a seasonal job at Gander Mountain. A perfect job for a retired outdoorsman! I didn't turn it down. My wife suggested that if I wanted to do a trip before starting work I'd better go now, and I did.
