Re: TR: 7/29 – 8/7, 2018 [RH-DF-MB-CH-MCC-TH-NLD-WC]

Enjoyed your trip report! I've seen several of your YouTube videos while researching for our trip but hadn't read this. I just finished a trip (9/7/18 - 9/15/18) with my husband, sister and a friend. Ours was pretty low mileage (MB-DF-3M-RH) but we had a great time. I did a day hike to Lane Cove and...

Re: Itinerary advice for first time group

ChicagoMoose, I went back and forth on the Lake Richie stop. I think it will depend on weather. If the weather is bad, I thought an inland campsite might be more protected from the wind.

Re: Beginner's Kayak Trip

Thanks for the responses and the tip about getting a backcountry camping map from the park. Ingo, the pictures were beautiful! We're really going back and forth as far as taking the kayaks or not. I think we'll get the map, the book that was suggested earlier and keep reading through this forum. Whe...

Re: Beginner's Kayak Trip

Thanks for the replies! I was at work and typing fast when I posted that and was thinking later that I might have said Lake Michigan by mistake. Oops! :oops: I do realize that Isle Royale is in Lake Superior, LOL. I have looked into the costs for bringing a kayak and have factored that into our budg...

Beginner's Kayak Trip

A friend and I have been discussing a trip to IR around July 4th. We have kayaked on smaller lakes and rivers but have no experience with something like Lake Michigan. We were wondering if there are any multi-day routes that would be reasonably safe for us. We are both experienced backpackers and wo...
