A friend of mine is a Forest Service employee and was out on a 7 day trip with a partner & while they were camped (not sure if when asleep or ??) someone came by their camp and took a full pack, their paddles & some other items.
They ended up having to paddle back in with the shovels they use to work on portages & campsites.
That's so sad! These kids working for the forest service ,making sites. Busting their humps for a little pay & mostly gratification were robbed,how sad.You should see what they go through to dig a latrine through the rock. I have seen them go to a site early with the mission of clearing a monsterous white pine that blew over on a camp site. They use all manaul hand equipment.Buck saws with 2 people ,sweatting bullets,2 more with axes and away they go.It takes the better part of a day to do this feat & some person steals their gear. shame shame shame!

I can't believe the criminals found their way into the woods! Hopefully those Dumd***** got lost and never came out. I don't know where Snowbank route is, is it part of the boundary waters? I just can't believe the things people do to other people, did they think you had extras or were they just having fun ruining your trip? Like CK said SHAME, SHAME, SHAME! I guess all campsites should be equipt with security systems, what has this world come to?????? Gotta Run Bobber Down
