Friday, June 24, 2016

Headed out of N.WI cabin promptly @ 3:30 am to grab our permit and canoe. Carl from Rockwood greeted us with a newly purchased used 3 person aluminum. Carl set us up wonderfully with bungies, a seat back, and pipe insulation for the front person's legs. We will definitely be back to Rockwood!

Paddled the short distance to Lizz portage, flew on to the portage to Caribou, and choose the far southwestern camp for our base camp. After our ceremonial sausage and cheese snack, we set up camp and started to plan our first fishing outing.
