Trip Introduction:
This trip was originally planned in late 2019 for our my Wilderness Club. We planned for eight people to go. Had a pretty robust trip planned. After the concerns with Covid-19 happened my club cancelled their plans for the summer due to liability concerns. Since we had this trip planned and the entry reserved we decided to make it a private trip. Our group of eight went to four. My coleader had some conflicts and had to back out. Soon our trip was down to two. My paddle partner Janice I knew from our wilderness club. She enjoys the outdoors and is an avid fisherman. She was hoping the trip would still happen, she had been to the BWCA twice before and was looking forward to a week of relaxing and fishing.
Part 1 of 4
I was in Ely in July taking my granddaughters to a YMCA camp I found called Camp du Nord. We had a week of cabin camping and a day trip to see the pictographs on Hagman Lake (that will be another story). But when I rented a tandem canoe from Voyageur North, John at VNorth helped me plan a new route that was designed for Janice fishing and me relaxing (I don’t fish). Planned two camp locations with two nights in each.
