Nimblewill Nomad is poised to soon enter the BWCAW

Categories: Uncategorized

I caught up with Nimblewill Nomad yesterday on the phone and he was in Tower, MN.  He planned to walk up to Ely and possibly beyond today.  My thanks go to Steve Piragis from Piragis Northwoods Company for helping Eb out in your area!

So, in just a couple of days he’ll be tackling what I think is the most difficult section of the entire North Country Trail, the 100-miles of the Kekekabic and Border Route Trails through the BWCAW (that’s Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness for those unfamiliar with the acronym).

He was grateful for all the NCTA folks in ND & MN who have helped him out along the way.  He’s been impressed with the Trail sections he’s been able to walk, appreciated all of our efforts, and has enjoyed his walk into spring so far.  Well, he probably didn’t enjoy encountering the two blizzards in ND and the frostbite too much, but he perservered.
