My group is now planning our section one trip for this May. We will be going either May 10-13 or May 17-20. We have done the Boundary Waters for many years and do a lot of overnight trips here in KY.
A few questions. . .Paddlefest is May 18. . .would you go the week prior? Temps here are really warm. . .to avoid bugs. . .and if temps stay warm. . .would you go the earlier date? We also need an outfitter recommentation for ferrying us from the take out back to our cars. Any suggestions? And lastly, a campground to stay the night in on Thursday night. What about Old Forge Campground?
