Quotes from the episode

“If anyone is going to plan an outdoor trip(…)I recommend the Boundary Water Canoe Area” Christopher

“I see a canoe as a vessel that floats in water. It is impenetrable from water. What happens when it rains?” Nate

“Your canoe can handle probably three inches of rain before it actually starts causing issues” Christopher

“Getting into a place that you can go and rent them for the day and not actually having to purchase one, would be a good starting point” Nate

” When you’re in a canoe trip you tend to go back to old school maps” Christopher
