Re: IR hacky [relocated from Itineraries]

Some...but, portages are portages, trails are trails. :) Haven't done the Tobin Harbor to Duncan Bay or the Lake Richie/Chippewa Harbor to Lake Siskiwit ones.

Re: trail runners?

Kevinl...don't forget that great food you were given at Washington Creek on that trip. I remember when you came into the campground after you fished your run. I knew an ISRO Law Enforcement Ranger who was station at Malone Bay and did the Malone Bay to Ishpeming Tower run to keep in shape. Don't thi...

Re: IR hacky [relocated from Itineraries]

I've probably been there 20+ times. I'd have to go back through my journals to get an exact count. All first boats except for one trip in July with my daughter and post-Labor Day in 2016 with my wife. Once I've finished that last 10 miles, I'll start on another ISRO bucket list: First and foremost, ...

Re: 2018 Trip Log - Add your planned itinerary here!

Nick DeTour Village 5/5/18 5/20/18 From Grand Portage Plan on getting dropped of at Chippewa Harbor, eventually paddling over to Malone Bay. Once I complete that paddle, I will have circumnavigated the island and will have hiked every trail on the island, some more than once. It's only taken me 40 y...

Re: Good Paddling Information

And, don't forget those pesky snowballs that can really ruin a paddle.

Posting Photos

I knew how to do this at one time, but can you give me some guidance on posting photos. Do I need to use a photo sharing web site? If so, which ones? Thanks.

Re: Shelter Dimension

Bobcat,
Thanks. That's just what I need. An exact measurement is what I'm looking for. I need the number ASAP as I'll be on the Island for two weeks starting 9/5.

Shelter Dimension

There is a sill in the shelters that is about 4' off the floor. It's the shelf that we all put or small stuff on. I need to know how thick that sill is. It looks to me about 4". Can someone get an accurate measurement for me? No speculations. I need an exact measurement. So, if someone is going out ...

GPS for Microsoft Phone

I'm generally technologically challenged (I learned to type on a manual typewriter in the 60s). My current GPS is a 2001 vintage Etrex Summit. I'm told that I can use my Microsoft Lumina 640 phone as a GPS and can include USGS Top Maps, too (I currently have the USGS quadrangle maps cut down with UT...

Re: Reservations now available for Voyageur II and Sea Hunter 3

Just made mine for the first boat. I think this will be about the 10th time I've caught it. Haven't since 2011, though. Excited. Planning three trips this year: kayaking McCargo to Windigo in May, Rock/Moskey/Chippewa Harbor with my daughter in June, and Tobin/Blake/Five Fingers with my wife in Sept...

Re: Wolf population is at risk (News article)

Let's not write their obituary quite yet. I seem to recall a similar prediction after the Parvo pandemic in the early 80s. They have a way of surprising you. Still, I've read with fascination and admiration the reports from the researchers over the years.

Re: Respect the Lake and Be Prepared

And the most frightening thing is that I've seen solo paddlers with similar gear and boats on the Island in early May.

Re: Advice sought on mid-May hike

Great advice from JohnH. All my trips to IR have been in May (my first was 1976). Only downside is you might run into JohnH. :twisted:
