Near the end of July, I took a trip to Northern Minnesota to do a repeat of an adventure that was done 25 years ago. Back then, my son Daniel was 7 years old and had his first big wilderness adventure, canoeing a chain of lakes in the north woods of Minnesota with his dad and uncle Jim. Stepping forward 25 years to the present, my son Daniel is 32 and his son Aiden is now 7 years old. Itís was time for Aidenís first wilderness adventure. Accompanying us on the trip was Jamie, my sonís girlfriend, and Dave, a friend from my youth.
