Trip Introduction:
My first time in the Bwca. It won't be my last !
Day 1 of 4
Monday, September 23, 2013 We got on the water a little after Noon on Monday, a south breeze greeted us on our short paddle south to our first portage. A 50 rod portage ! Lot's of big boulders and up hill, o boy I was thinking what did I get myself into ! Two more short and easier portages later and we were in to the Bwca ! South in to Crossbay then a 56 rod into Rib where we spent our first night. Great first day Sunny and breezy !
