...Now that my ferry reservations are in I just have to hope the ferry out of CH isn't delayed.
Also note that the Voyageur II operates on Central Daylight Time (since it is based in Grand Portage MN).

Re: Changing my userid

The ability to merge two users may require a specialized extension to this phpBB forum. I'll defer your question to fonixmunkee who is more knowledgeable in this area. We could rename your original username to be "bobcat1" and this would affect 29 of your oldest posts. Then we could rename your curr...

Re: Fall Storm Sept 2019

The Ranger III did not make the outbound trip to Isle Royale last Tuesday Sept. 3. They headed down the portage canal and got out just past the breakwater and ran into 14' and greater waves. Captain decided to turn around and return to Houghton. The Ranger III departed without incident the following...

... Next year, I think I will drive to MN and have the Voyager drop me off at Belle Isle!
Sounds like a good plan. Thanks for the trip report!

Re: Leaving from Copper Harbor but want to hike Windigo to RH

Seaplane or Voyageur II ferry are your only two options to get from Rock Harbor to Windigo, if you are dead set on traveling from Copper Harbor. Check out this thread for more logistic options to get from one end of the island to the other. Link ---> https://isleroyaleforums.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=...

Nice details in your trip report. Lengthiness is well respected here on the Isle Royale Forums. Glad your party did not feed the fish.

...Did you happen to see anyone that was backcountry camping? I think we'll have to backcountry camp because we have an afternoon flight into Windigo. If there was anyone off-trail backcountry camping along that stretch, they probably wouldn't have been seen. The rules state that one must camp at l...

Re: Carrying Water

I use a Platypus Water Tank so I can bring water back to my campsite and use/filter as needed. I apply a thin layer of petroleum jelly to the zipper when it becomes stiff and hard to zip.
