    Thanks! I don't think we will be getting a tow. I think we are going to start at Lake One and make our way to Insula Lake.

    Well Iíve hit a snag in my trip to the boundary waters as all the folks that wanted to go with me have all backed out. So it looks like Iím going solo. Iím picking up my new kayak this weekend and that will give me a much better idea on how much portaging etc is want to do. I have old injuries in my back and neck so any portage of distance will be difficult if not impossible especially solo.

    I was hoping for Hegman, but I might just have to take a second trip I guess. Darn oh well. Back to the drawing board. Otherwise Iíve gotten most of the gear I need. But Iíll also probably due to going solo only do a weekend instead of a five to seven day trip now too.

    Ah yes the grim back out. Very sorry. Yea that portage between Trease Lake and Angleworm is brutal, long and has one area that's always a sloggy muddy mess. Something else I might suggest for a nice long weekend and easy test of the waters is to go in at Sawbill Outfitters on Sawbill Lake and do the short loop in some fashion of Sawbill, Kelso, and Alton. There are some really nice campsites up on Kelso and it feels fairly remote for being so close to a put in. There's only three short portages between 10 and 30 rods if I remembering right.

    Well through trail magic or fate or maybe a bit of both I have found someone who is as excited about doing some camping as I am and she just purchased a Kayak. So my trip is back on and only three weeks away. Looking back at Hegman the first weekend of october. I believe the permit period stops after Oct 1 so I will have to check that.

    Went solo this summer over Labor Day in at Seagull outfitters and portaged to Alpine, what a great trip it was! Feel free to message me if you have any questions about a solo trip, it was also my first time up there so I learned a LOT being by myself.
