Re: Future IR Adventure for Noobs

Dcclark is right on. I would just emphasize that you should recnsder the Minong, given your experience level. It won’t kill you but I doubt you would enjoy it. The warning holds especially if the trail is wel. The Minong ridge/hard rock is trechorous if wet.

Moose are everywhere! In May, around MCC, I saw 6-7 moose in a single day, nine for the whole trip!

Re: Feldtmann Loop questions

I think a twelve-year old will be fine. As for speed, I always assume two miles per hour, including stops. I guess I would stick to that on the two trail legs you ask about. I also think the comparison to the Porkies is interesting. You are 100% correct on the mud in the Porkies. You will get muddy ...

Re: First time to IR - a couple of questions. TIA!

I suggest you drop East Chickenbone from your plans. The camp is quite a hike from the water and is generally regarded as the worst site on the island. Consider a layover day at another site instead.

If you have time in Rock Harbor, don't miss the easy day hike on the Stoll Trail.

Re: Chippewa Harbor or Moskey Basin

I agree with Ingo—stay at both. Both are awesome sights with lots to explore. Chippewa sights have already been mentioned. At Moskey, scampering around the exposed rocks on both sides of the pier is great.

Nick! You made it back!

Thanks again for the food. You are right, for whatever reason, skillet bread works ok with me. Next time I may bring that and some honey to pur on top of it. Thanks again for the hospitality at Chippewa.

Not sure this will work. One, a very common sight of beaver activity. The second, a frosty breakfast table (that is my coffee cup) at Chippewa.

I do have a few pictures--a great sunrise--but I have never been able to figure out how to successfully post them.

Glad I am not the only one with the weird appetite issue!
