Hometown: Tionesta, PA
Arrival Date: 8/22/17
Departure Date: 8/30/17
Coming From/Via:Houghton/Ranger III
8/21 - Drive to MI from PA, camp at Hancock Recreation Area Campground
8/22 - Ranger III to IR, camp at Rock Harbor (hopefully!)
8/23 - Water taxi to Hidden Lake, GRT to Lane Cove

8/25 - GRT to Hatchet Lake
8/26 - GRT to South Lake Desor
8/27 - GRT to Washington Creek

8/29 - Get a spot in Rock Harbor first thing in the morning, rent a kayak and/or chill for the day

Notes/Other: Experienced solo hiker, but open to constructive criticism. Reservations already made, so dates are set in stone. Question - During the time of year I'll be visiting, will I sleep comfortably in a 20° bag? I'd very much prefer not to schlep my heavier 0° one.
