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

Great thank you! It looks like there will be a couple days of thunderstorms coming up... do you have any advice on where to set up tent during the storms to avoid lightning? The campsites are off the ridges and in wooded areas. You'll be fine in a storm. Just pay attention to overhanging limbs (wid...

You’ll find them in a lot of the wet areas. You’ll hit a few on your route.

Re: BUGS!

Would you treat your packs with permethrin too? Sleeping bags? I discovered 'Dick's' is the only place that seems to actually stock it in my area - 24 oz trigger spray. I know one is not enough, but will 2 be enough to do a pack tent, 2 packs, bags and clothing for 2 for a week - my clothing list i...

Re: 1st time ever! Input please

Looks like you have a good plan for a short trip. Pretty easily done mileage. The rock harbor trail that you plan to take on day 1 is harder than the tobin harbor trail but not too bad. Tobin harbor trail would also be nicer if it is raining because the rocks are very slippery on the rock harbor tra...

Re: Lockers for rent in Rock Harbor?

I looked into this last year and what Ingo is saying is true. I will say though the gift shop offers a lot of toiletry products in travel sizes and relatively decent prices (for where you are). They also have a pretty decent selection of tshirts. I am a SUCKER for novelty touristy tshirts and so we ...

Re: BUGS!

Yup what Ingo said. I will also say, bring long sleeves and long pants! You might be a tad warm but it'll do a lot to protect your arms and legs from the bugs.
