summer, is not to run rapids in your loaded canoe if the course and strategy is less than immediately obvious.

When we were picked up on Basswood Lake after a long spell in Quetico, there were a couple of sheepish guys on the launch, too, with their torn aluminum canoe.

They were novices like us. They had been on the Basswood River and got tired of portaging gear and boat, so for what looked like an easy rapids, they tried to run it.

Their boat was torn, they lost some gear and most of their food, and they had to beg food from other parties until they, like us, were scheduled to be picked up.
