BWCA Trip Disapointment Entry or Parent Entry

6 posts in this topic

Hello all,

I have a trip going in through Snowbank and I'm wondering if the 2 80 rod portages from Snowbank to Parent then Parent to Disapointment is a better route than the one 140 rod from Snowbank to Disapointment. This will be our first day so we will be fully loaded. Also any campsite recomendations would be helpful.

Thanks in advance Moose

I have been over all of them and if memory serves me right they are all easy. For me half the work of portaging is getting out unloading lifting. once it is on the back the distance is not a big deal. If it is you can stopand rest.

I agree with Yukon loading and unloading seems to be the most work. I would do just the one.

Those are pretty flat portages too, if I remember right.

Might want to post this down in the BWCA forum. There is a lot of good help down there also. wink

My second trip ever into the BWCA was from Snowbank to Disappointment (and then doing the loop up through Ensign). It's a very easy trip between Snowbank and Disappointment, even with a lot of gear. If you do the entire loop, the only portage that seemed tough was the 320 back into Snowbank from Ensign. Although that might have been because I was pretty green at the time.

    • Hahahah! Right? I didn't even get to cut with yours dude. I'll end up buying the fuel or a dewalt DCD 996, whatever I find a good deal on. A 9ah battery on that Kdrill? Can you imagine??     
    • https://www.c-span.org/video/?c4658334/spicer   According to December Spicer this is now a dictatorship. February Spicer seems to disagree.   Also the White House threw them out in spite of confirming the truth of the reports.   https://www.apnews.com/5d9107864dca4089a5e23da56fd863e2/Officials:-Trump-adviser-asked-FBI-to-dispute-Russia-reports?utm_campaign=SocialFlow&utm_source=Twitter&utm_medium=AP_Politics
    • Special treatment? Like a seat at the table?   If Obama didn't give FN a seat, we all know you'd be first to wet yourself.  OK, third to wet yourself.  Uncle Bill would be second and leech first since he already wets himself routinely.
