We went out in the BWCA in August 2015. Cliff Wold’s was great. The outfitting was amazing and we had great meals and equipment for a reasonable price. We basically could have had a “feast” every night. Two suggestions I would have are: make sure that you take a pulley or have them give you one, and do not refuse the camping stove and fuels. It rained the entire time we were there and it was basically not possible to start a fire. While I wouldn’t bring the kitchen sink, don’t overstress about weight, everyone we met doubled back on the portables to get gear. These guys know their stuff so you don’t really need to load up at REI before you go, just bring what they suggest on the website.
