Oregon Dave  (aka Dave McTeague

also with Friends of Wabakimi.

Thanks to Ben, Auralee and Jay for putting up the Wabakimi section. Pray for the border to open, otherwise I'll be back in the BWCA like last year (and some Montana paddling too).

Welcome to 2021, goodbye 2020! 

Of course, I am here. Big year ahead both for Paddle Planner and my own paddling excursions. Still figuring out details, but we will be canoeing as much as possible. The big trip will be my son's first Quetico trip to "Secret Lake" (hoping the border opens). My wife wants to try her first solo trip, probably to Baker Lake. I will be taking a scout group somewhere - have not decided on dates or locations just yet. I will take a solo trip as soon as my job allows me to, probably in late May.

I am still here. It would be nice if we knew when the border is going to open. All the speculation is frustrating and a real downer. .

Here! Booked 2 permits today. One for South Kawishiwi River in August, a family trip that should be low key. The other is for September out of Brant Lake. A friend and I are going to loop over to Kek and back to Missing Link with a stop at Raven in the Mugwump PMA. That will be my first PMA experience so I'm excited!

August is a long way off, but I'm glad to have these on the calendar!

SKR is so good for low-key trips. If you have a kiddo, Bruin has quite a population of little crappie. We were hitting 4-6 inchers nonstop all afternoon just off the snags last June.

EP54 on 8/8! I'm doing my first solo trip but base-camping on Red Rock. So, not a "trip" in the sense that I will be doing any other portaging other than the 10 rodder into RR. But...a week in the woods is what I'm looking forward to!

Wally13 present and accounted for. Waiting for this Covid pandemic to fade away so we can all get back to a normal life.

I'll be making my first trip to the BWCA on 7/2/21 for some adventures.  I'll be entering at EP 54 on Seagull.  Not new to canoeing, portaging, wilderness camping, etc.  Just new to the BWCA for recreational purposes.  I was there in 2006 as a firefighter for the USFS and it's been on my bucket list to return to the BWCA for pure enjoyment.  What a beautiful place!

Gavia still here, loony as ever. Still struggling with chronic Lyme disease. Got out paddling once last year for an hour. Still longing to get back to the real world (wilderness canoeing). Hoping everyone has a great year.

Had been taking somewhat of a break from internet so, checking in a little late.

Got a Cross Bay EP #50 permit reserved for late May (meant to do this trip last year but, had a change of heart).  Also, gonna try for at least a couple more shorter trips.  Looking like one of those will be out of East Bearskin.

Here and enjoying the new website!  We'll be heading to the BW mid May, Voyaguers in August and Silvania in early October.  Looking forward to another year on the water.
