If you're still thinking of MN - Boundary Waters and Superior Hiking Trail are both awesome options!

Re: Light and Cheap, under $20

Great ideas for the large pad Ingo.

Farkle dice game $10 1oz. This one might not be essential, but it's the perfect light game to bring on a trip. Comes in the same size as a film canister.

Re: First Timer's Gear List

Appreciate the shovel suggestion, I'll be in a large group so I'll make sure one of us is carrying one. As far as light items go, my paracord was definitely not correct. Ha. It came to 4 oz. My stove and rod are weighed correctly though. I use Kelty Triptease Lightline, 1 oz per 50 ft. Works great a...

Re: First Timer's Gear List

I'm not going to say 1 canister of fuel is fine and be responsible for you running out :? , but last year end of May, 7 days, oatmeal and Mt House, I used about 1/2 an 8 oz canister with an MSR micro rocket. If you feel you need to bring more, take a 4 oz canister as the extra/backup. Gear, well th...

Re: 1st Trip to Isle Royale

Thanks for the tips everyone. :D , I've purchased the ferry tickets so we're all set. I think I have a better understanding for fishing now that I've checked out a few threads. I'll make sure to check out Rainbow Cove and the locomotive by Island Mine. Can't wait!
