Solo Backpackers and Shelters?

Hello All -

I'm hoping to make my first solo trip to IR in 2016 and I was just curious... what is the etiquette for a solo backpacker when it comes to staying in shelters?

Thanks!

Re: The Queen out of service as of 7/29/15

Just double checking... It sounds like the Queen is back to its regular schedule, correct? I have a reservation for the 12th.

Re: I.R. Tattoos?

It may just be me, but I can't view those pictures. Is there something I need to do to be able to see them?

I.R. Tattoos?

Hi Everyone - I've never gotten a tattoo before, but I'm starting to get the itch for an Isle Royale tattoo. Something simple - just the outline of the island filled in with one solid color or something. I saw a picture of a tattoo like this on a Facebook group a while back, but can't find it anymor...

Re: First Time to the East Side

Great- thanks for the feedback. I feel good about this route. Not as much backtracking and we get to see more of the island. Yes, we're the ones you met on your way to Huginnin. We're excited to try the east side this time! Oh- and I'll tell my moose-happy brother you promised him a sighting at Thre...

Re: First Time to the East Side

The plan is to take the Queen from Copper Harbor, so it looks like we'll arrive about 11:15. We're hoping to make the trip in early August. I really wish we could add a 4th night, but this is all the vacation time we can gather this time around. Here's me trying to get creative - what about this ide...

Re: First Time to the East Side

Thanks for the feedback. I was wondering, too, if 11 miles might be too much on the first day, considering we would be arriving that day and wouldn't have a full day to hike. I'd really like to stay at Moskey Basin one night since I've heard great things about it. Would it be too much to take our ne...

First Time to the East Side

Hi Everyone - A group of us (5) are heading to the Rock Harbor side of the island for the first time this next summer. I was wondering if you all would be so kind as to give me some feedback on the itinerary. (The trip is so far away, but I can't stop thinking about it!) I've been to I.R. twice and ...

Re: Music Playlist for Isle Royale

I'm bringing an old post back! I'll second anything from the Into the Wild soundtrack and The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald. And I'll add... "Camping Next to Water" - Badly Drawn Boy "Highway 61 Revisited" - Bob Dylan (if you're leaving from Grand Portage) "Furr" - Blitzen Trapper "The Wolves (Act ...
