Re: Itinerary Feedback 08/04-08/13

I'll try and post my trip report a few days after getting home. I'm opting to not do a supply drop for my similar trip and needless to say my pack is heavy! If you can make a drop work it's keep your weight down.

Re: cell phone coverage?

Last year I on the top of the tower at Mt Ojibway I had 2-3 bars of LTE service. I made a few phone calls and was even able to upload a couple photos to FB. I was using an iPhone 6 with Verizon as the carrier.

Re: Meeting people mid-trip

I'll be coming over on the Queen July 3 then head to Windigo via the Minong, coming back around the Feldtmann Loop and then heading back towards Rock Harbor via the Greenstone. He'll come across on the Queen on July 10, catch the Voyageur on the 11th and meet me on day 8. We'll meet at W chickenbone...

Re: Meeting people mid-trip

They go to Chippewa Harbor so he could take the Indian portage up to Richie then up to W chickenbone right? He's trying to not pay the full fee taking the water taxi solo, it can get pricey.

Re: Meeting people mid-trip

Thanks for that heads up, I read Malone Bay and just mistook it for Moskey, back to the drawing board for this one

Meeting people mid-trip

I have a friend who wants to join me in my adventure this summer, just not for all 10 days of it. The plan is for him to come to the Island on the Queen and then catch the Voyager the next day from Rock Harbor to Moskey and then hike from Moskey to the W Chickenbone crossroads on the greenstone wher...

Thanks for the report and letting us know about Lane Cove, I'm still debating on giving it a try, but the prospect of wet feet before I climb up that hill on my way out is feeling less and less appealing.

Re: Itinerary Feedback - 7/6-7/15 - [First time on IR]

That's a very do-able plan. If you stick to that schedule we'll cross paths somewhere between the 9th and the 10th as I'll be heading the opposite direction on the greenstone. The heads up I'll give you is second hand info from others on here that the planks on the way to Lane Cove are currently sub...

Re: Hiking suggestions in the Lower Peninsula of Michigan

I know this is older but I just hiked the Manistee River trail this weekend. Due to time constraints on the first day we didn't get started until nearly 3pm. Luckily it's mid-June so daylight isn't an issue. Started at the red bridge parking lot and followed the trail north along the river side. The...

Re: Itinerary Feedback - Early August

I'll be doing roughly the same route in July, to include going from Todd Harbor to N Lake Desor. I've been told that'll be the hardest stretch of my trip. I'll try and have a trip report up by late July and hopefully that can help you out.

Re: Travel Size Food, Spreads, Condiments

I just re-uped on alpineair for this summer. Yeah it's not the most tasty, but buying it at $4.50/meal helps my budget out. As long as I throw in a couple mountain house biscuits and gravy I'm a happy camper.

Re: Lane Cove

I heard rumors of this while staying at McCargoe last year. Any idea how much water is covering the boards? I was just looking at this years trip and trying to find a way to squeeze Lane in. It was my first ever overnight on the island and I'd like to go back.
