Our Voyageur Crew member Adam Maxwell loves to spend time in the Boundary Waters. He paddles and camps in the canoe country almost every day off he has at Voyageur. Because of our proximity to Saganaga Lake, entry point 55 into the Boundary Waters, he often finds himself west of American Point where boats are no longer allowed. I knew he had been out camping that way a number of times but I was surprised to hear he has camped at the first 14 campsites west of American Point.
Camping in the Boundary Waters for 14 nights isn't that big of a deal to some people but having stayed at all of those campsites means he's at least been out there 14 times and that doesn't include camping at the same site more than once or for more than one night. Many of these BWCA canoe trips have been solo adventures which means he has quite a bit of paddling time under his belt.
Adam has also explored many of the other lakes in the Boundary Waters accessed from the Gunflint Trail as well as the Quetico Park. I know he's been to Stairway Portage, Saganagons, Gunflint and many of the lakes around Bearskin.
What a great thing to be able to spend so much time in the Boundary Waters. He always brings his fishing pole along on these canoe trip adventures and usually catches fish. I need to get Adam to write down a log of all of his trips he has taken as I'm guessing it's the most of any Voyageur Crew member we've had. Way to go Adam, you're a lucky guy!
