I met one of the trail crew guys on the island and I had to shake his hand and thank him for the work that they...

Re: Trip report May 19-22 2017

Is the "most fun day" statement sarcasm? :) No sarcasm it was a hike I will never forget seeing the moose and having a challenging hike like that in the weather conditions we had was actually fun. We were properly dressed for the conditions and had the proper gear had we not been, it would not have...

What shelter # ? Going to Daisy In 8 days don't want that one if it is a leaker I'm 99.99999% certain it was shelter #11. I got first dibs and picked that one for being on the lake (sort of), and close to the privy. https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-E14gqpkGTuk/V4Gq6cMss2I/AAAAAAABw3M/Sd5DTs2wsG4VaTh2OUW9...

Re: cody.magill itinerary

Maybe not have to set up a tent in the shelter to hold heat loss to a minimum. :?: Last year I put up my tent inside the shelter at Daisy Farm not because of the cold, but because of the steady stream of water coming through a crack in the ceiling during an extended downpour :( What shelter # ?

Could bump the time to 5 seconds and the video would still be fairly short. I like the shorter YouTube videos vs the over 30 minute Ones

Re: Hammock friendly campsites

I guess I should ask the Ranger about hammock setup along the trail . I see it done a lot in AT and PCT videos on YouTube at the scenic spots it would be nice to set up and chill out at Mt Obbjibway or on the Greenstone.
