Great reading, thanks.
Looking at some of the trip reports and pictures I agree it looks worthy of a trip and less than half the distance. So we should be able to extend our paddle days by 2.
First step, get some maps. Is there one section that is better to quiet canoe tripping? Rather just buy one map than the whole set. The maps look incredibly detailed.
So permits - looks like backcountry fee is $11.87 per person, is this per night? Or a one time entry fee? I think I found somewhere else there is a $5 per person, per night camping fee? Any clarification would be great.
So I have to have a detailed float plan and reserve a permit for each nights stay at a specific body of water? What if the conditions warrant a layover day? What if there are problems that slow progress? What if we travel faster than expected? Lots of unexpecteds out there, hate to have to feel like I am on a timeline. However does this permit system mean that there will always be a campsite available for you at your proposed permit site? That would be cool, cause in the BWCAW, we have had trouble with that before. We like to travel and most seem to like to set up camp around noon, so by 3pm it gets hard to find a site.
How is the fishing?
Enjoy the day, Mike
