Hi folks.

The photo is our son Chris on his first night of his first trip into the BWCA. This was taken on Long Island Lake.


Be an example worth following.

Staying Warm in December (snowy, wet, cold and pre-fire ban). "There are strange things done in the midnight sun By the men who moil for gold; The Arctic trails have their secret tales That would make your blood run cold; The Northern Lights have seen queer sights, But the queerest they ever did see Was that night on the marge of Lake Lebarge I cremated Sam McGee." Robert W. Service

These are false morels (mildly toxic). We found out this past year after eating them for about 5 years. Some of the guys would still eat them since nobody has ever gotten sick. I guess I'm not willing to chance it anymore. They sure were good though.


Because I'm wearing one and I just did....

Unrelated to Mr B's mushrooms; Just a note that Amanita family of mushrooms are also prevalent in the BWCA and are responsible for 90 percent of deaths from eating mushrooms. They were used by the Berserk people (Vikings) in battle; i.e. "going berserk". ref: Stensaas, Mark; 1996, "Canoe County Flora"

Hey Georgia Boy. When and where was the picture taken? Looks like it was a great time to be in the woods. I assume this was late fall somewhere in the BW.

Ooooo! I like your's WP. Red canoe on a misty morning. Looks like a "real" canoe, too. What model is it?

I like Blueshadow's pic, too. Another red canoe... :-)

Thanks, Bannock. I'm glad you like the picture - and the canoe. The canoe is the Wenonah Prospector 16, and although heavier than other designs/materials, I've found that its aesthetic appeal more than makes up for its extra weight on portages.

It's doesn't really make me think of December, instead I think of the next Bdub sunset I will see.

"... The canoe is the Wenonah Prospector 16, ..."

That's why it caught my eye. I have a wenonah Prospector 16 as well, only mine is burgundy. To date, it is my favorite tandem canoe.

Wilderness Paddler is the winner of the December contest! Congratulations!

The extra hat give away goes to Georgia Boy.

Thank you everyone for sharing your great pictures.

We will be working to put together the end of year contest around the end of the month. And we are looking to make a few changes in the 2007 contests so keep an eye on the January thread for details.
