Yes, I was referring to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area. I'm in Minnesota. I'm pretty much frozen out of sailing at the moment, but spring is getting closer. What a relief, it looks like I should have something I can sail by spring, so I won't miss even a single season. I was beginning to wonder how it would feel not to have any kind of watercraft. Sailing is in my blood.
The Superior National Forest isn't bad for kayaking also. Complete wilderness is not an absolute necessity for me, as long as there's a place to camp.
When I am thoroughly familiar with the boat, I'll take it out on Lake Superior. I've always wanted to try out the new water trail up the north shore. I'm sure I'll go back to the Apostle Islands again. One has to be careful out on Lake Superior, perhaps even experiencing a chronic terror of the weather, in order have the proper respect for the lake. Especially in a kayak.
But maybe with this new drive system, I'll be able to get off the water more quickly in a situation where the weather is turning bad. I've paddled canoes for years and never have been happy with my efficiency or endurance. Here's a whole new situation with this mirage drive. Again, I can't believe I've missed it up to this point.
