John, she's an explorer...has circumnavigated Australia, New Zealand, Iceland, Ireland and South America. She's not easy to be around. Read the last few entries in her blog about the dust up with the young guy she was coming up the west coast of Alaska with. My son has the kayak and people skills to maintain the peace. But I sincerely worry about the bears...funny all the dang wars I've been in and I'm sitting here worried about polar bears. He's got more experience with bears in Alaska than most though.

Reading about how the shotgun they were carrying rusted up in the salt water so much they couldn't unload it makes me think that getting the Marine Magnum was the right thing to do. But nickel is still not proof against salt water. Need to wipe it down daily.

She calls herself Goddess of Love to the Seas; her young travel companion might have had his hopes dashed. I would worry more about her than bears.

Gene, they went up the Red River (which flows North, so south) to where the headwaters of the Red get very close to the headwaters of the Mississippi. And then down the Mississippi to the Gulf.

I’ve done what you figured….downstream to Lake Winnipeg, then the Winnipeg River to LOTW. Then a myriad of lakes and rivers to Lake Superior. But the other way…..we started at Thunder Bay. That trip is known as The Grand Portage. When you start at Lake Superior the trip really begins with a 9 mile portage to get across the Continental Divide. There are another 32 portages before you get to Lake Winnipeg. Almost 1 1/2 per day.

The West was discovered for Europeans and eastern North Americans by the French and Scottish fur traders who took that route. Lewis and Clark not only depended on Sacagawea, they depended on French Canadian and Scottish Canadian fur traders who had traveled those waters for 100 years before Lewis and Clark showed up. I was specifically retracing the routes taken by La Verendrye around 1640…..the first Europeans to cross the Great Plains and see the Rockies.

Charlotte...no body gives a dam about reading about your pecker head son paddling around with his Remingtn 870 junk shotgun.

This is a double gun forum.

Hello, I find this thread very interesting and I am enjoying reading the stories contributed.A lot more so than the inane ,rude and insulting posts that are continuously being input by the same few sad people. Regards

If we wanted to read bullshit jOe, we'd just read some of your posts denigrating TSS shot for turkey.

Pretty clear from the title what the thread was about. No reason to even open it if it didn't interest you.

I got a question Argo44....

Did it take your brother longer to become an internet Randall knife expert or did it take you longer to become an internet SxS X'spurt ?

We know you did it in 5 years....just currious.

Argo must pay Dave a lot of money to be able to post his bull chit threads on here.

jOe, that is patently not true. Dave leaves lots of OT threads. This thread has a connection to shotguns....as evidenced in the title. What Dave tends to do is delete the threads that get polluted by nasty, personal slags by the likes of you and a couple others.

But that may be your plan....ruin this thread so Dave has to delete it. But rest assured, if that happens, we will all know it was because of your posts.
