Trip Introduction:
After several boyhood BWCA trips, it had now been ten years since my last trip. I had also never taken a solo trip, or a fall trip. With all my kids finally in school full time, it was the perfect time for me to get back into tripping and embark on my first solo.
Part 1 of 11
Sunday 09-25-16 I had originally planned on driving from Green Bay to the Kawishiwi Lake entry point, but work schedule changed that and I had to work all day. A quick stop home after work to load my gear and say goodbye to the family and I was on the road about 6PM. I arrived at our family cabin in northern Wisconsin at 8:30 for a nap. My cousin was there and we had a nice chat about my trip and past BWCA trips of his.
