Re: BUGS!

Got it. thanks. Yeah, I don't need 2 pants. And I guess 1 tee should be sufficient. I'll probably end up wearing sleeves most of the time anyway.

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 is...

Re: June 25-30 plan

Thanks - sounds good. Okay, I'll drink Superior water. I don't have an aversion to it, but it got your attention. The suggestion of the bays instead of the lakes area due to bugs is on my radar. So Chickenbone is the last water source to Lane's Cove. And if we go out to McCargoe it's only a couple m...

Re: [Tool] Isle Royale Trip Planner Spreadsheet

haha, Without a usable map one has to guess on every data point since my destination from point A to point B is not an option. And since I didn't 'double' entry for "camp" it doesn't show that.

Re: June fishing inland

Thanks Tom. Any chances to catch perch over 8"? I obviously can't bring a 'tackle box' along - maybe a couple spoons... but if perch can be had I'd gravitate toward a couple small jig heads and twisters.

Since I never carried a fancy stove before - ala pocket rocket or similar - I want to be sure I can ge...
