Winter Camping, Clearwater Lake
Day 1 - Thursday, February 10
Dan, Dave and Brian left the Twin Cities after work, and I left Babbitt, MN about two hours later with the goal that we all meet at the Adventurous Christians lodge on the Gunflint Trail between 10:00 and 11:00 pm. I was the first to arrive, followed soon by Dan and the others just minutes later. Dan introduced me to the main lodge, and the four of us stayed up for a while talking. With an array of couches and a big double barrel stove giving off ample heat, tonight's sleeping arrangements would be very comfortable.
