Normally on this blog we talk about what is new at Gunflint Lodge, but I want to take a minute to talk about some of the new things at our canoe outfitters, Gunflint Northwoods Outfitters. After a busy summer last year Bonnie (the General Manager of the outfitters) came to me and said she really needed more new equipment. Growing up I spent three summers as a canoe guide, so needless to say, her plea fell on sympathetic ears.
Well she has done a fantastic job of sourcing out new gear. She ordered several new Souris River canoes, a bunch of Granite Gear canoe bags, and a large number of sleeping bags. If you are planning on coming on a canoe trip this summer, I hope you get the Kevlar package so you can enjoy the new equipment. The new canoes and gear are really nice and you are definitely going to be using some of the best stuff available.
But if you do not have a reservation yet, and are you interested in going on a canoe trip in July, you better call soon because she is already running low on canoes, packs, and tents.
