The Bowdoin Outing Club encourages students to dream, organize and lead outdoor trips. This fellowship offers the financial support to shape the most creative and adventurous outdoor visions into real opportunities. The expedition should foster a spirit of adventure and encourage personal challenges and skill development and in the end, contribute to the growth of the Bowdoin Outing Club.

Conquered Lake Winnie!

After a long day of paddling in the sun, we've officially made it past Lake Winnibigosh (the largest lake on the Mississippi) and are now at Crazy Jame's Campsite. Unforunately (or maybe fortunately?) James has yet to grace us with his precence, but we'll let you know if we meet him. The 12 mile crossing of Lake Winnie went well, unlike all the horror stories we've read.... We just enjoyed a delicious dinner by the lake, and I am very excited to drift off to sleep very soon. 8 o'clock has become my new bed time. Due to a lack of energy (and phone battery) we decided to make a list of words describing the past few days (complete sentences are overrated):

Bugs galore
Red lights
Awkward portage
Hurrikane and the Cloud Controversy (c) 
Dry water
Wet water
Skinny dipping
Light ramen bombs
Stone face
The river
Medical mysteries
Mysterious lake monsters
Spirit animals 
Sore shoulders
Old people
Logg jams 
Crazy James

In a few days we'll be in Grand Rapids to buy groceries and potentially be interviewed by the local radio station. More updates to come then.
