Sorry JB, but if I drove all the way to the Twin Cities, I could not resist going a few miles farther to canoe country.


Hope to see some of you at the Copia, Rockford, and South WingNights.

Went by Lake Rebecca I've been checking on it daily. Yesterday a few hundred yards were open. Today Saturday almost 1/2 the lake is open I have never seen a lake open up so fast before. At this rate I'll be dipping a paddle this week, along with a line.


JB


Sunday it's open.

i'm thinking Saturday AM with something for the pot luck and gear lottery.Mrs Wetcanoedog sounds like a good solid "more likely" than "maybe". our very old dog,17 this month,needs close attention as she wanders and such other old dog stuff so one night will be enough for her around a group camp.i had a great time when i soloed at the last Wing Night and want to bring the rest of the canoe load along this time.


it's just a level trail thru the woods.
