Who's all here? And, what types of wilderness adventures do you have planned/hope for in 2023?

Thanks TB for getting the party started! Last year I went on 8 trips, more than I have ever done before in a season. I am guessing it will be a similar number this year. Most will be to the Boundary Waters since it is convenient for me. I hope to get up to the Quetico with my son again this year.

We have done a couple of Boundary Waters trips as a scout troop, but we are looking at doing something different this year. The Apostle Islands and Isle Royale were suggested, so maybe we will go to one of those. I have never been to Isle Royale, and I have not been to the Apostle Islands since I was a scout myself.

No matter where I go, I am looking forward to another great year of paddling!

I'm here everyday. No specific plans yet but hope to do a long backpack trip and explore more close to home day paddling.

Present! Quetico for sure this year, plus the usual weekend trips in northern WI. But we might also do some paddling in Belize next winter!

Here. After a record (for me) 4 trips last year, I hope to do a similar number this year. No firm plans yet, though.

Happy 2023! We're planning on taking 5 trips to the BWCA this year.
May - Crocodile River Basecamp
June - Snowbank Lake (Basecamp on some lake nearby)
July - East Bearskin Lake (Bascamp near Johnson Falls)
August - Wood Lake to Seagull Lake 50 mile one way journey
September - Little Indian Sioux River North 60 mile Loop
We're moving to Hayward, WI in 2025 to get closer to the Northwoods and the BWCA : )
Cheers all! Dane, Mandy, & Eva

Hello folks, UPBoy here.

I haven't spent much time on this board. Mostly use PP for trip planning and routing. I made three trips last year. The first was over Memorial Day weekend with the Grandkids to Wood Lake. The second was a unique adventure with seven fellow veterans that was sponsored by the Bong Veterans Center in Superior, Wisconsin. They do this every year and it is a no-cost fully outfitted trip. None of us had ever met before but by the time we pulled out, we were great friends. We spent 5 nights on Isabella Lake fishing, telling jokes and stories, and playing cards. 

The last trip was a family trip with three of my sons. We put in at Little Indian Sioux and worked our way up to Taucmich Lake for a few days then back again.

Only one trip planned so far this year and we will be putting in at the South Kawishiwi River entry and exploring from there. Maybe the Kawiwishwi Triangle or maybe a Gabbro loop. I'm looking for more trips but lack trip partners now that my boys have families of their own and are busy. Does anyone out there need a trip partner?

Hello everyone,

I always take a fall trip and every other year I go with the Local Boy Scout troop. So far we have the trip scheduled for 4 Boy Scout crews in July and I have a permit for Entry point #14 Indian Sioux North in September.

Safe paddling!
