    I am contemplating a Canoe or possibly a kayak trip in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.

    I am experienced backpacker in the Sierras.  I have all the gear I need for sleeping, eating etc.  But I have minor and old experience with canoeing and kayaking.

    I can go from 5-8 days.    I am 68 years old but healthy.    I will probably be alone or with a nephew who lives in Minneapolis.

    I appreciate aloneness, but get really excited about catching some Walleye, big trout, Pike and Small Mouth Bass, even some nice perch.

    With no recent experience in the north woods, I would like any suggestions regarding the best routes, the best outfitters and the viability of a kayak versus a canoe.

    Also, I can get all of my stuff into either my ULA Circuit or my ULA Catalyst.  Would they be ok in a canoe or a kayak.

    Does any one with experience and or equipment want to do this with me?  August 6 or 7 as start day.

    I appreciate alloneness, but value learning on a first trip.   I love to hike the Sierras solo, but didn’t start out that way.
