Trip Introduction:
I decided to do a quick look see at the portages to Rose and Rove lakes and take my canoe buddy Claire the dog along. She doesn't much like riding in the canoe but loves the portage trails.
Day 1 of 2
Friday, August 29, 2014

I take another half day at work and once again start at three am to get out as day shift is coming in. My friend and co-worker Julie is bringing Claire in and when she gets to work she tries to leave her in my car this time. I beep my car doors open and we chat a bit as she begins her shift and I finish mine. When I get out and begin heading down the road I realize why she didn't bring her in the building this time. Apparently, she was out all night and man she was she smelly. She loves to do the stink roll when she can. The next three hours I have the car well vented and the widows down as much as I can. Finally, I reach Finland and the Maple Grove bait shop to pick up my permit for the following day then it's off to the cabin to get Claire a bath.
