Each year I plan a camping trip with "The Guys," it is always a blast and everyone has fun. This years trip was a little different. We went to the Superior National Forest with many comforts, we brought a camper, lawn chairs coolers, 2 large barrels of firewood, and.....most importantly several potato cannons.
The canoeing was great, we paddled 8 miles, and portaged 1.5miles in a day. Many fish were caught, some were eaten. A few guys jumped in the lake, some of us laughed at them, others snored loud enough to scare the most burly bear away. The Minnesota State bird was out in force, the mosquito dope was more of a speed bump than a deterrent to them. They bite one guys hand so much it swelled up to almost twice its normal size. I got three bites in a row in my left arm pit.
