Three Month Solo in the BWCA

Sound like fun to you? How about in the winter?

From Quetico Superior Wilderness-

A young man named Jon White recently spent three months alone in the wilderness, paddling in on November 1 and pulling a handmade toboggan out over frozen lakes at the end of January. He did the whole thing without a food resupply, and went two-and-a-half months without seeing another person.

White camped on Knife Lake and explored the surrounding area on snowshoes, using traditional techniques and gear. He tested his “bushcraft” skills by sleeping outside in -35 degrees F and leaping into the water through a hole in the ice during sub-zero temperatures.

And he recorded all of it. Starting on January 31, White has released a total of five videos.
