Mr. Barley, we had a tent exactly like that back in the 70's!

This month's picture topic reminded me of something funny posted on another board a few years ago - the word "castrametation." It means "the art of setting up or laying out a camp." What a great word! And of course it lends itself to all sorts of funny puns. Try to fit it into your next trip report!

Rain, rain and more rain! Esther Lake September 2007 - 5 Inches in one night. Our makeshift clothesline works quite well! We also had a great island retreat where the view was impressive when the storm clouds rolled in! check out my other pics in the Journal section

Here's my favorite BWCAW photo in all my 4 old albums. A friend took it on Seagull on the last night of a trip in the early '90's. Don't smoke my pipe any more, but I always enjoyed that evening "Smoke" by the campfire while listening to the "Loon music." WW

There were many great photos this month which make me pine for some time in camp.

The winner of the May Photo Contest goes to thecanoeman! Congratulations! The winner of the trip report contest is kanoes for his first but not last solo adventure! L.t. Sully picks up the bonus hat we give away each month.

The winners of the photo and trip report contest will also receive a hat and also a CD copy of the Wilderness Passages magazine and DVD.
