Northern Tier 2012 - Quetico
Entered Quetico at Batchewaung 21 after puting in at Nym. We had a late put in, after lunch, due to a blown tire on the canoe trailer. The put in boat ramp was a fairly busy place, but the lake itself was virtually empty of boats. After put in we fought a stiff headwind all the way across Nym and Batchewaung. It had been a couple of months since our prep trips, so it took about an hour to end the zig-zag canoeing patern. The ½ mile portage trail from Nym to Batchewaung had a BSA Order of the Arrow crew doing work on it and the result that we saw was a portage trail akin to an interstate road!
