anyone interested in a Canoe trip?

Postby rthompson » Mon Apr 07, 2008 8:15 am

I was thinking about organizing a CSO canoe trip to the BWCA or Quetico. I need to know soon, i was just looking at the reservation website and a lot of the dates on a lot of entry points are filling up fast so i am giving a 1-2 week window to sign up.
here are a few of the things to think about.

-cost to rent a kevlar canoe is $35-45 per day and hold 2-3 people +gear , aluminum is about $20 per day and hold 2 people +gear
-Duluth pack is about $5 per day to rent and i highly recommend renting one per person.
-I can buy food for those interested in coming at the rate of $12 per person per day.... and you will NOT go hungry no matter how much you eat.
-I have a couple (2) 4 person tents i can lend out but they are old and one is musty.
-9 person group max
-4 boats per group so if 9 people go, someone has to rent a canoe big enough for 3 people.
-dates are as follows
Aug 1-4
Aug 22-25
Oct 3-6
-Yes i know all of the dates include a Monday, but i won't have much vacation time built up and it is what i naturally have off.
-I could take an extra vacation day to turn it into a 5 day if there is interest, i would highly recommend a 5 day.

-the October trip will be the most relaxing of the bunch with less people around us, but Walleye will be hard to find that time of year and bass and Lake Trout (i think) are out of season so it will be catch and release only for them.
-the August dates are probably going to be hot and a good number of bugs, but don't let that deter you, but it will be in the midst of the summer slow down for fish, but we should still get some action.

If I still live in MN by then, you can count me in. I would love to come and get a weekend away.
