Okay, so I'm a new member and this is a CANOE trip but I thought I'd send an email out to the MN & WI Outdoor Enthusiasts, as I am desperately seeking someone who can take time off
from work during the week. I am a flight attendant so my schedule is
somewhat flexible. I have vacation in September and a free outfitter
package for four days for the BWCA. I've been there once before for a
10-day canoe trip and had a blast!!! I want to go back but this time in
the Fall. I heard it's even more beautiful than when I went in the
I am planning to start the trip on Monday, Sept. 15th. Here's the itinerary...
Entry Point #16
1 Paddle the Moose River north to Agnes. Then portage to Oyster River,
onto Oyster Lake. I'm planning about 6 hours of travel. We may have to
paddle to Agnes and avoid the Oyster River if water levels are low and
the beavers are busy. Rumor has it that Oyster is a phenomenal lake to
Day 2 Paddle to Ge-be Lake. It is not a far paddle and I
am planning to be there in time for lunch. I'd like to have the
afternoon free to fish and do other things. Or, we could go as far as
Lac La Croix if we wanted to travel further. However, I've heard that
Ge-be Lake is beautiful and quite a few nice campsites.
Paddle from Ge-be Lake through Ge-be & Pocket Creeks across Lac to
Agnes. The portage from Ge-be Lake to the creek is steep but going this
direction, it is downhill. With a planned stop for lunch, we should be
able to arrive at our site on Agnes about 3:00 or so. It'd be another 6
hours of travel, unless we have a stiff east/south wind. Also, doing
the loop in this direction is better, as a westerly wind is more common
than an easterly wind.
Day 4 Paddle Agnes to the Moose River exit, about 4.5 to 5 hours travel.
possible, I wouldn't be opposed to adding a fifth day to this itinerary
just to take in the scenery and spend an additional night wherever we
After much consideration, I'm not sure if this
trip would be for beginners or not. Six hours of paddling a day may be
a lot for an inexperienced paddler.
If you're interested in this trip, please let me know. Thanks:)
