Re: Government Shutdown

That may be the case again, Capt Don. Rolf said the wolf moose study has been shut down, not because of finding, but because the NPS isn't allowing anyone to access to the park.

Re: Better to visit in early May, or late August

IN 2013 or 2014, the second week of May saw everything still frozen and they couldn't get a boat into either harbor. MikeT has a trip report on here within the last five years where they were "snowed in" on a mid may trip. If vacation time is at a premium, I'd vote Late August. I've been in late May...

Re: Reservation forms

I wouldn't worry too much about it right now. Even if the form was available, no one would be there to process it. Probably why it's been deactivated.

Re: Spotted in Superior, WI

The V2 looks so small in that picture. It's an interesting perspective. It makes me realize that we've rented a houseboat on Dale Hollow that is bigger than her.

Re: First Timer perhaps 1st week of June 2019

Welcome to the site, Keith. Your early itinerary is fine, but has a lot of of inland camp sites. Your first 4 days of hiking is going to look a lot like southern Ohio. I personally like to be on the shore of Superior as much as possible. I would suggest that if the extra expense of taking the V to M...

Re: Sierra Club article about the wolves

You see lots of people use the phrase "restocking the zoo". Not sure i agree with the rationale for it.

Very good article. Thanks for posting.

Yeah, it was pretty sobering to look back and realize how lucky we were. It could have been a deadly situation.

Re: First Trip

Malone is a great campsite. How about float plane to windigo, Feldtman, Siskiwit, S Desor, Malone x2, Voyageur to Windigo and float plane back to Michigan?

Re: Going the Wrong Way - Ozarks Bound

The water levels started out floatable, but not high. lots of class 1 with a couple of class 2. It's no coincidence that all my photos are of flat water or when I was out of the boat. I took my Mad River Independence instead of a kayak. No rocker, all keel made it tough for me in the small, twisty, ...

Re: Going the Wrong Way - Ozarks Bound

We drove down to the Two Rivers Campground on the Current River. We caught a shuttle the next morning to Baptist Camp from someone I've become acquainted with from BWCA.com (Thanks Terry!) and got into the river at lunch time. Gravel bar camping for the next few nights. A couple of really clear nigh...

Re: Up to 6 wolves to be introduced this fall

Fourth wolf released yesterday. No press release, but they posted photos. Looks like Siskiwit Bay campground. Posts for the earlier releases mentioned they left a moose carcass nearby in order to insure an easy first meal. It made me wonder where they obtained the moose. The facebook page for the i...
