I have been hearing about the BWCA in bits and piece for a number of years. Last summer, we spent a long weekend at Bear Head State Park. That was enough for me. I wanted to go into the BWCA next summer.

I've been planning, purchasing and packing for this trip since April. My former co-worker, Steve Gendron has been a great help and has provided me with invaluable tips and information.

"Forecasted" weather conditions show for a cooler and drier weekend. They wound up being a little off. I tried to get through work today but it just wasn't happening. Left early, made some last min. purchases and finished packing for a quick start the next morning.

Steve and his son Charlie have headed up to Sawbill Outfitters today. We will meet up with them tomorrow.
