Eleven slow and hard miles against the wind from the Cascade River to Grand Marais.  I stopped for supper at the restaurant on the water in the Grand Marais Harbor.  While eating I met a couple that has a house on Gunflint Lake, my first supply drop after the 8- mile grand portage.  They asked me to stop in and offered to be the drop point on the lake.  It’s funny how things work themselves out because we still needed to find a reliable place to meet on Gunflint Lake.
