So .... let me tell you about a huge surprise that I got just a few weeks ago!
Well, let me start a bit before that .... a few months ago, mid-winter, I was asked if I would be interested in an opportunity to go to Canada for a week long fishing trip. OF COURSE I'm interested in going! So the planning began.
|Portable unit just like the one I used|
Lynn & I talked and we began the process of solving problems. Answer to CPAP issue .... a deep cycle marine battery, a 12 volt converter and we were in business. I purchased a new rod & reel, various and a sundry camping supplies and prepared to go to Canada
I was so looking forward to this fishing trip!
I was informed that we needed to be in International Falls at 11 AM on Monday July 6th. That meant for me leaving Oskaloosa, driving 3 hours to Forest City, Iowa, meeting 3 others guys there and then driving as far as Hinckley, Minn. At Hinckley we spent the night in an "motel" that allowed us a bed and a hot shower (the last opportunity for a hot shower for 5 days).
Google Maps! All told .... a 13 hour trip!
Once there ... we unloaded and at the road and portaged in about a 1/4 of a mile to the camp itself and got our cabin assignments. Once our gear was stowed we prepared for a supper of hamburgers with all the fixin's!
Following supper, Doug and Josh Farrell and myself got into a 16' Lund and motored to a small cove on Road Lake and began hammering the small-mouth
More to Come!
