I'm a first time traveler to BWCA and I'm having two major problems with my trip planning. I expect to to be on the water for about 2 weeks but I having trouble finding an affordable canoe/kayak rental. Most are advertising around $25-30 a day which will really add up. Anybody have suggestions for getting a boat for a longer trip? Also, I'm having trouble finding a way to get from the airport in Minneapolis or Duluth to an outfitter. I'm a college student so I'm looking for inexpensive solutions to both problems. Thank you very much for any pointers you can give!
Are you wanting to do a solo? Or are you meeting anyone up there. What time of year are you going. you might be able to jump in on anothers trip if you hit the right time and place to go in. You might post the time of year/dates you want to go in on this forum a little closer to your entry date and find someone to at least pick you up from airport and maybe even trip with.
If you post too early, your thread might get lost by the time you need to seriouly start looking.
i am planning on two trips next year (spring/fall) and pass through both cities.
