Trip Introduction:
We are a group of guys from Ohio who make a week long trip to BWCA every 2 years. It is a trip which is looked forward to by everyone involved. There is more time "planning" these trips than the trip itself! This year we have Deny "camping expert", Tom (Goose) "fishing expert, Brian "mister everything outdoors", and myself Tom "trip planner".
Day 1 of 9
Friday, September 02, 2016. Our group normally has been driving straight through to BWCA on the way up. This year it was decided to lay over somewhere north of Chicago. Everyone met at my house and after packing, we were on the road just before 4:00 pm. Goose drove his suburban and everything was going smooth until we hit Chicago. Traffic was bad and we also had to detour around an accident. Finally we were out of Chicago and ended up in Madison Wisc where we enjoyed a few brews before falling asleep in a Hampton hotel.
