||Greg has taken at least one (and usually multiple) overnight trips to the Boundary Waters every year since 1966. The part he enjoys the most, other than taking new folks for the first time, is the camping aspect of a trip. Fishing is great, canoeing is great, portaging not so much, but setting up and being at a wilderness campsite, especially with his favorite pup, is his contentment zone. From suitcases, old heavy canvas tents and john boats to lightweight Kevlar canoes and hammock camping, canoeing, hiking and winter trekking, his wife considers him a Boundary Waters addict.
So you love your pup, they're always with you and you can't imagine leaving them behind when you take your canoe trip. You want to take them, but should you? Join Greg as he shares his experiences in over 50 years of Boundary Waters canoeing and camping, sometimes with his own pups, sometimes with other group members pups, and also interacting with other groups who have pups. He'll talk about what should go into making your decision, preparation tips if you do decide to take them and gear and packing needs to make their and your trip enjoyable.
