Re: Clothing in June

torpified is correct about the head net. I tried eating and or drinking with it still on my head (covering my mouth). What a mess!

Re: Why Does Minnesota have more Wolves?

I almost hit a wolf on Mich. 117 north of Engadine a few years ago (on the way to Copper Harbor). On the way home that year, another wolf was on the side of the road (Mi. 94 W. of Rumely). They are in Wisconsin (saw one E. of Clam Lake). I've seen some along L. Superior in Minnesota.

Re: Isle Royale Named to Best of the World List

I guess I was thinking back 53 years ago, when the drill instructors were training us, to be infantry at Ft. Dix, NJ. November/December in the field was pretty chilly/cold.

Re: Isle Royale Named to Best of the World List

I'm old! Guess what's in the Oct/Nov2020 AARP magazine on page 60? ISRO NP 2019 visitors=26410! I was one of those visitors. (Some time I'll tell you about the Rangers and yours truly.) Topic: Off the Beaten Path. I'm not in the magazine.

Re: Wolf Island, a new book about the Wolf-Moose study

My local library has this book. I'm #2 on a wait list for it. The other Mech books are worth the read!

Re: Starting from East end of Greenstone Trail

The Greenstone from the junction near Mt. Franklin to Lookout Louise was one of my favorite hikes. I did the hike out to the east as the sun was coming up. I've thought about doing it again. jerry (the old guy)

Re: Alone at Malone

When I got to Malone many, many years ago there were many kids and parents there. That was the only place I was able to call Ohio, Ky, and Minnesota with a regular cell phone (at the NP) . The hike down from Greenstone was a challenge. The trail down was overgrown and in some places above my head. I...

Re: Trip Report: Aug 6-13, 2020

Thanks for the video! Envy you guys. I thought after last years hike (at ISRO), I'd retire from backpacking. The rangers were checking up on me every where I went (sore L. knee and R. ankle). Thanks to them I made it back to Rock Harbor. Now I don't know where I'd go, if there is a next year. Every ...

Re: 2021 Trip Advice: Minong Ridge, to Daisy Farm

If you want a challenge, IncaRoads' route, McCargoe to Windigo is worth a try. The hike from N. Desor to Wash. Crk is long. I got my shoes/boots wet on the last leg of the hike. Wish I could do it again (I'm probably too old to do it again).

Re: On the Lookout for Moose

A nice article. A friend from NYC sent this to me last night. I give her reports of my trips after each trip. Wish all of us were there right now.
