BWCA trip day 1

14 posts in this topic

Oooo.. did you have fun drinking the lake water? Or was the water not drinkable? I remember stowawing Coke cans and other sweets for a week long trip in the BW woods. It may ruin the whole experience of nature but man does it satisfy. Hmmm Snickers bar.

Anyhow you can always snap really nice BW pictures. Thats one of the great things about it. Those pixs always bring back good memories.

MT, thanks for sharing such a beautiful place. Took me back to 30 years ago, when I was last there.

Great shots.

Had a great time. Fishing was quite good with walleyes and crappes being the most caught, northerns and smallies followed that.

I didn't take any photos, but my buddy did. I'll try to get some posted.

We had two Wen Noh Nah canoes and rented a Souris River Canoe. They were all great canoes, with the Souris River edging the others out for overall performance in our opinions. It was a little more fishable because it seemed to have more stability.

I first read you guys were headed towards Polly, I wondered if the famous Polly bears had paid ya a visit, and alas, I guess they did. laugh Just adds some excitement to the trip if in the end everything works well. smile

Thanks for the reports guys, I'll have my own to post when I get back from an Oct trip.

    • Three favorites at the moment.  By the time they upload, I may change my mind.
    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
    • Hey featherslayer, you gonna register that nice bird of yours pretty soon?
    • cool find!  sure looks like a Swainson's.
