Re: Fly and Skeeter check

Blackflies souldn't be a problem. Mosquitoes could be if there has been rain. We go early or late in the season, always bring headnets.

Superior Delivery Service : Duluth to Grand Portage

Folks have posted in the past about transit from Duluth to Grand Portage to catch the ferry, or (now), to Grand Marais to take the seaplane.
Superior Delivery Service out of Hovland can do the trip. Call ahead to make sure they are available.

Re: EverClear on Seaplane

According to the Travle guidelines from the webpage, no flameable liquids can be taken on the plane. This would include Everclear as it is extemely flameable.

Re: Rock of Ages lighthouse restoration 2018

Given the Island can be seen in the shot, I think this orientation or one facing IR would be good. I am guessng any other driection would just show water.

Thanks to you and the Mrs.and all the volunteers for your work on ROALH. When we were working on the Dassler cabin, we went to Passage Island. Tried to get some work going there.

If you like plants try and get to the outer islands (Raspberry) as they have plants groing there that you would have to travle to the artic to find.I found my first Calypso Orchids on the Scoville Loop. Glad you had success fishing.
