A new year brings us a new trip log!

Once finalized as best as possible, post your itinerary, and then look around the list at who may else be enjoying a trip at the same time. It's a great opportunity to make new friends on the isle.

If you have questions or want feedback on your planned trip, consider posting your questions on the Trail and Campsites (viewforum.php?f=4) and Canoeing, Kayaking, & Fishing (viewforum.php?f=5) subforums.

We also have a visual calendar (app.php/calendar) to post the simple schedule, as well.

When you return, we hope you share your experience with a Trip Report!

Please copy below and post your plans in the following format:

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 years!

Um ... I can't figure out how to delete an off-topic post, so I'm adding a semi on-topic one---it's more of a fantasy/scheme than an actual plan. I'll update with an actual plan in the unlikely event one transpires.

Who: torpified and her (fiercely attached to furniture, especially beds and toilets) husband
Where (now): Ann Arbor, MI
When: before the bugs come out.
How: the Queen?
Scheme: RH LODGE; RH --> Chippewa (hopefully sleeping in luxurious shelters, convenient to commodious outhouses along the way); Voyageur to Windigo; Windigo CAMPER CABINS; back to RH in a manner that minimizes bedlessness.
Notes: If you have tips on selling those fiercely attached to furniture to the less furnished stretches of IR, please share them!

Will be using water taxi and Voyageur to base camp. Will be bringing out a lot of camera gear for Milky Way images among others. The second time at Daisy will be using off trail backcountry camp permit to stay up by fire tower to hopefully get some Milky Way,sunrise/sunset images from high on island. This will be first time bringing all my camera gear, Go Pro, waterproof Nikon and 2 Canon DSLR's, tripod etc. Too much weight to backpack. Have always brought disposable, point and shoot cameras. This time all the gear with a little luck it will be clear at least one night.
