Ashley Bredemus - Big Changes, Endless Happiness
Imagine... you drive 50 miles to the very end of the legendary Gunflint Trail, in Minnesota's Superior National forest. Then you hop in a boat and drive up the Seagull River, and the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness is staring you straight in the eyes. You look over to the bank of the river and you see a little quaint cabin nestled up in the pines, so you go park your boat, walk up to the door, and as you open the door you hear nothing but the sounds of the wilderness around you.  Well, this is Ashley Bredemus's routine every time she comes home from running to town. Tune into this episode to hear everything Ashley has to say about living remotely, blogging, and owning a wilderness camp!
