Post your trip! The Isle Royale Trip Calendar

Post by fonixmunkee » Fri Apr 06, 2012 7:37 am

The Isle Royale Trip Calendar is currently NOT WORKING after the latest software update (5 February 2017).

Please go to this thread to post your trips: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=3209


The Isle Royale Trip Calendar is an easy way to view who else is on the island and where! Maybe you can bump into someone...just check the calendar! It's easy to post your trip, and view the stats:

1. Go to app.php/calendar, or click the first "(?)" icon on the top-right forum menu bar (mouse over it and it will say "calendar;" I hope to get a new icon on it shortly.)
2. Click the "New Calendar Event" button at the top of the calendar month.
3. Fill out the form. Be sure to put some brief details in the "Title" line, as this is what shows up on the calendar's main screen.
4. Be sure to complete an entry for every day of your trip. (e.g., "day 1" on the 22nd of May, "day 2" on the 23rd of May)

For an example of a good, completed calendar entry for your trip, check this entry here.

5. Click the "Submit" button, and your entry will be automatically added to the calendar.

As the calendar populates with users' trips, you can see who will be where on the island...and maybe you'll bump into someone you know from the forums. So start logging your trip today:

Will trip calendar entries show up in the View new posts section of the board once they are approved?

Unfortunately no. As cool of a feature as this is, I couldn't find a way to get a calendar to plug-in to the forum software. So currently, they are to different systems. Sorry :(

Sure thing! Just resubmit them, and I'll do the rest!

I posted a date of my trip on June 19 (Jerry) and that is an error. mY other entries are correct. Unfortunately, I could not figure out how to delete the June 19 entry. Sorry.

I wasn't entirely familiar with the calendar setup when I posted the first day of my trip, so it doesn't have any itinerary attached to it. I couldn't figure out how to edit the entry, so feel free to block the two dates that I placed and I'll make a new posting on the calendar, now that I understand how it works.

(The two events that I placed in error are titled "Jason and Hannah's Honeymoon").

Sorry for my mess-up!

Fonixmunkee - I attempted to post our trip a few days back and didn't get the system figured out. (It's a "Senior" thing!) I did post our itinerary under Buckeye "Seniors" Final Itinerary, 9/9-9/18. If you care to mess with it and want to list us in the calendar, that's fine with me. This Web Board has been great !!

Approved a bunch of calendar entries on the Trip Calendar (there were a LOT)! Check it out and see if any other forum people are going to be on the island when you are!

Well, I tried to post on the Calendar...hope I did right. Anyhow, forum members viewing calendar for Aug 2014, know that West end trip is me and my 15 year old son, plus a few others perhaps. so if you see us on the trail, say hi.

Tightlines West End Tour

Post by Tightlines01 » Fri Feb 21, 2014 11:17 am

Hey all,

I was trying to post in the calandar but keep getting errors so I'll have to post here.

Trip dates are Fly in Sun June 22nd and fly out Sun June 29th.

I'll be taking the float plane in and out nice and early coming and going so I'll have plenty of time on the first day and plan on spending the last night Right in Washington Creek. Not sure how the bushwhack to Hay Bay will go, but will likely be attempting it.

Houghton to Windigo to Huginnin Cove
Huginnin Cove to Island Mine
Island Mine to Hay Bay
Hay Bay to Siskiwit Bay
Zero day at Siskiwit Bay
Siskiwit Bay to Feldtman Lake
Feldtman Lake to Washington Creek
Washington Creek to Windigo to Houghton
