I'm Coming Back!!

Post by hooky » Wed Jan 10, 2018 5:55 pm

After a 4 year hiatus where I swooned over the boundary waters, I'm going to hike the Island again!!!

All right, with that out of the way...

I've started planning for a mid/late May trip. We're thinking that we'll go out of Copper Harbor. But the question is, generally, should we enjoy ourselves or not?

I'm really excited about going back. I've been all over the south side of the island. I think I'd like to do Lane, Mcargoe, Todd, etc... and then com e back via the Greestone.

Wish me luck and feel free to tell me that I'm wrong or need to make a second trip this year.

Sounds great, get your "fix"!

I think early middle may would be an ideal time to do the minong.. more water in 6 mile creek, less undergrowth to fight and.... NO BUGS. I plan to do it again some day, and it will be in May

My first trip was in May and we really enjoyed it. My last trip was way back in fall of 2014, so I need the fix. Thanks!

I think you should skip all that hiking business and come and volunteer on working on the Rock of Ages lighthouse over the summer. :D

We'll take you any way we can get you. Hike on!

If I was young with no responsibilities or older with no responsibilities, that would be a great way to spend a summer. I guess that makes me a "tweener" again.
