    Yep, and it appears to me the USFS sites with lousier tent spaces don't get used/beat up as much.

    I'm heading up to Nels Lake this November - that area pulls me like a magnet.

    Holy Schnoikes!
    85 pounds for a food pack! Eesh, I thought the 40# that my wife and I take was heavy and that includes the food, cook kit, fuel and some other odds and ends. How many people and for how long were you packing for?

    I love the BWCA. I grew up going into the Quetico every year, but now get 1-2 trips to the BWCA year. We usually go in through Sawbill Lake, north of Tofte. The folks that run the outfitter at the entry are awesome.

    We still have yet to hang from trees, but I see it coming in the newr future.

    Ah, sorry. After rereading your post I see you were packing for 6. Still that's a heavy pack on a mile portage. Makes you look forward to portaging the canoe!

    A link to the sawbill website. Good blog with pics. They also have a daily weather log that spans back several years and can give you an idea of what temps to expect at any given time. http://www.sawbill.com

    Only 2 pics with hammocks (lounging in the ENO), but lots of other pics of the scenery (and fish) here: http://picasaweb.google.com/staciradtke

    Looking forward to the next trip already. September can't come quick enough!
