I am constantly told by people; “someday I want to go on a Boundary water canoe trip”. My inner response is “no you don’t”. My real response is”just plan to go, get a permit, and go”. I guess I am simple and life is complicated. To take a vacation all you have to do is save a little money, pack some clothes, get in the car or plane, and go. If you want you can come back. Whatever it takes to actually have the adventure you always dreamed about, I would suggest you do it. Keep it that simple. It’s as simple as forging ahead as we did between the rocks. 58 wilderness canoe trips and it’s still simple.
Maybe it’s more of a dare than a dream or a “someday” wish. So I dare you to adventure. I dare you to risk the possibility of a dead-end or the adventure of a lifetime. The waterway opened up for us this time after a couple of portages around some rapids and sharp rocks. The scenery was breath-taking and the fishing fantastic. Will I go back? Does my canoe still float? What is your next adventure?
