First, an apology for not finishing the Grand Enchantment Trail journal. As soon as I got off the trail, I kept meaning to finish the trip journal from my notes, but it kept getting pushed back with other things going on. I’m going to do my best to finish over the next month or so. Sorry the story is a bit stale now (you know I survived so that takes all the drama right out!), but I’ve got good notes about what I wanted to write about so hopefully interesting things will still shine through.
I also know a lot of people were worried about me or wondering if I had fallen in a hole or off a mountain or something. I got a lot of really nice messages from folks wondering how I was doing and I wasn’t able to respond to a lot of them. I always go through a bit of a post-trail funk after trips end and don’t really function well. Sorry about that! Hopefully I will do better in the future at not leaving journals hanging and responding to emails.
Onward to better things! If you’re in the southern Minnesota area, next Wednesday, July 22nd, I’ll be doing a presentation in Mankato for the Friends of the Boundary Waters’ Brews and Canoes Adventurers Series. It’s going to be a lot of fun and I’ll have some great pictures and videos of various adventures to share. Here is a link to the Facebook event page (https://www.facebook.com/events/1570494989900043/) where you can find more information. I believe tickets are only $7 in advance and you get a free drink with that while supporting a great organization that works to protect one of the coolest, wild places on the planet!
Anyway, hopefully I’ll see some of you there, and look for new posts about the Grand Enchantment trail starting soon!
All the best,
