I am also sorry to clutter up WinterWarlock's thread, but I must highly recommend Stripperguy's advice. He has posted several excellent build journals on the By The Fireside forum and when I built...

Thanks for the report, it sounds like a neat trip. The mooses sound especially nice, and I'm glad you were able to get a ride when you needed it. I'll be paying my first visit to the Lows Lake area...
