Wilderness Tripping - BWCA & Beyond New Topic Printer Friendly Version

  You're stuck on your own definition.

Which likely means nothing to anyone else. Where I paddle with friends on WW in West Virginia, once you put on, you are not taking off without a 7-10 mile hike with no trails, up to 800' climbs, and no help along the way, all while leaving your gear behind. And there is zero chance of first aid other than what you or someone in your group can provide. That's a reasonable definition of "wilderness" in my opinion, though unlikely yours because we "get in and out in a day". So what? Brent didn't define it further than he did, so what gives you the right to make decisions and give directions for him?

If the site's not useful for you, g2d, the door is easily found. Be sure not to let it bump you on the way out.
