"It doesn't take a year to experience the benefits of the Boundary Waters"

Oct 5, 2016

Amy and Dave Freeman are not like a lot of couples.

For one thing, they just came back from a year spent living in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness for a year - basically just the two of them and their sled dogs.  While many couples would find that much togetherness ringing a death knell for them, Amy says their relationship "is better when we're in the woods."

In fact, its an experience the wilderness educators and travelers say everyone should try - at least, for a few nights.
