Tried my best to prove myself wrong. Even went so far as to run down the list of blog entries to check it out. A coupla times I made mention of Allan's and my first trip to the Boundary Waters but skirted what really happened. Forest for the trees problem. Some things are so obvious and mulled over I can't see them. Guess it's time to clear up this neglected moment and recall the trip that set it all in motion.
