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.

Overland Tripping Or Remote Car Camping?

Overland Tripping Or Remote Car Camping?

Is it ‘overlanding’ or is it remote car camping?  I’m trying to figure out if my spring 2020 trip I’m planning is the start of a new form of vacationing for me, called overlanding, or if it’s run of the mill remote car camping.

Most people who know me are well aware that I am not a big fan of car camping at designated campgrounds.  I enjoy visits to State Parks and State Forests but camping in their drive up campsites has always been lackluster for me.  My preference is to get remote and far away from other people, to immerse myself in seclusion.

Is this thing called overlanding the answer?
