Trans Wisconsin Adventure Trail – Overlanding Trip

Trans Wisconsin Adventure Trail – Overlanding Trip

Yep, the title says it all; Trans Wisconsin Adventure Trail Overlander Trip.  Okay, awkward, yet again trip plans have potentially changed for my upcoming trip in September.

I may have to stay closer to home during my September trip… and I may not.  So I am actually planning two overland trips right now.  The previously mentioned trip to the MN Arrowhead for some canoe camping, forest road exploring, boondock camping adventure!  Or, if I need to stay closer to home, then I will hit the Trans Wisconsin Adventure Trail instead (T.W.A.T.).

September In The Superior National Forest

September In The Superior National Forest

My spring overland trip got totally borked!  Luckily my September trip is still on.  However, instead of heading for the Upper Peninsula of Michigan I am instead going to do the trip I had originally planned for May of this year.

That means I am heading for the Superior National Forest.  I will be bouncing around two tracks and back-roads around the Boundary Waters Canoe Wilderness Area, and yes, I am bringing my canoe with me!  My trusty Old Town Guide 119.

Limited Outdoor Activities This Year

Limited Outdoor Activities This Year

2020 has been a very off year for me in regards to getting out in the woods, on lakes, streams, to hike, camp, and fish.  My Spring wilderness overland trip fizzled out, as some of the campsites I was planning to hit were closed due to Covid.  My vacation last week before the July 4th weekend was hit and miss as well – I did get out to do some canoeing and exploring, but stayed within about 200 miles of home.

So what is in store for the remainder of 2020?

Recently I activated Google Adsense Ads for my website.

I used to generate some side income through Affiliate Marketing on this website, but over the past couple months the online businesses I had been affiliating with lowered their sales commission rates.  It is what it is… Not a big deal, but I sure have noticed a lower average income from my website marketing methods.

Next Outing Is Planned!

Next Outing Is Planned!

With Covid 19 still present but in what appears to be a decline from the efforts of social distancing and other factors, States are opening back up!  On June 10th Wisconsin will be opening up campgrounds once again for campers.

I have been itching to get away from my local area where I have been doing some fishing, hiking, and paddling.  The desire to load up my jeep, my Old Town Guide 119, and a bunch of my kit it strong!  I need to go do something!

Spring Trip Plans Are Cancelled – Thanks Covid 19!

Spring Trip Plans Are Cancelled – Thanks Covid 19!

My overland trip I had planned for the third week in May is not happening.  The plan was to hit some remote areas in the Arrowhead of Minnesota, east of the Boundary Waters Canoe Wilderness Area, and stay at remote designated campsites.  However, the State of Minnesota is not opening campsites until the 18th of May… and then only maybe.
