Day 1 of 5
Day 1. Started out on medium size lake. It was windy so we have to rough it through white caps with fully loaded canoes. Canoed an extra mile to the Canada border station. Applied for "remote border crossing" permits. They were able to pull it off for us, but it was a 2 hour ordeal. Should have got them ahead of time. Lots of boats everywhere. A few more miles and we were at out camp. Craziest BWCA day I have ever had. 10 miles. 0 portages.
