Re: [Info] Backcountry Zones

Coming via the Voyageur II, your first stop is Windigo. You will be issued your permit there during the ferry stop. (The boat stays long enough to allow that to happen; this is the way every trip works.) Last year we took the Voyageur II to Rock Harbor and hiked back to Windigo. When we arrived at ...

Re: Rock Harbor to Windigo the Long Way

Stile: My neighbor and I did a trip very close to what you described in July and it was very enjoyable where we got to hike and see the island from end-to-end and side to side (I said we were criss-crossing down the island) and also had time to relax along the way. We varied from your itinerary in t...

Re: Rydens

I called to inquire about making a reservation at the motel for the night before our upcoming trip to the island and was disappointed to learned that the motel is no longer open. They suggested that I contact the Grand Portage Lodge.

Re: Obnoxious boaters

While we did not witness it, we were told that the weekend of August 3-4 there were some problems with the behavior of some boaters at McCargoe. When the Voyaguer had made her stop on 8/3 at the dock, there was gear sitting on the dock (coolers, stove, etc.), but no boat. In this case, it was our un...

Re: What are you spending your REI dividend on? 2013 edition

My experience is that the return of defective merchandise at REI has not changed. Shortly after they changed their return policy, I brought back a pair of hiking poles that one of the poles would not lock into position. When I explained the problem, it was explained that they don’t carry the same po...
