Trip Introduction:
Every other year my wife Kim comes with me to the Boundary Waters. This year was her time! Although it was a little different than before. In September of last year she had a bad wreck on her bicycle, which resulted in an over 6 hour surgery, 2 plates and 12 screws in her scapula, and many months of rehab. She got back on her bike in March, but this was going to be the first big test for her... both paddling distance and portaging a pack. It was going to be a test for me as well to see if I could help her as much as I could!
Day 1 of 8
Friday, June 22, 2012 We left Russellville, AR at 7:30 on June 22 and drove for 12 hours to Owatonna where we spent the night. Only two stop during that 12 hour drive, one north of Kansas City to re-fuel the F250, and the other a quick stop at McDonald's to re- fuel us!
