When are you paddling the Boundary Waters? I have a couple of trips I’m wanting to take this summer; one with my family and one with my son and his friend. Of course my son and his friend think they should be able to canoe and camp in the BWCA by themselves since they are 14 years-old now. The problem with that is as soon as I let them go out alone then I’ll never be needed or welcome on their trip again.
I obviously can’t let them go out on their own this year, or next and possibly not until they are 21 or older. I need to accompany them for their sake and mine!
