Episode 91 WTIP Boundary Waters Podcast

Episode 90 proved to be a pivotal moment in the history of the podcast. A capsized canoe on the Temperance River in the BWCA just days after ice out led to a memorable story that was shared by the four members of the trip: Matthew Baxley, Kevin “The K-Man” Kramer, Omaha Erik Dickes, and Joe Friedrichs.

In this episode, we learn more about the experience, including some lessons learned. St. Louis County Rescue Squad Captain Rick Slatten also shares perspective on the situation, specifically about Friedrichs getting pinned behind a white pine in the river after the capsizing event.

This episode also features supplemental commentary from the K-man about his family’s reaction to the experience, and there’s some bonus audio from around a BWCA campfire just days after the canoe capsized on the Temperance River.
