Re: May mud, mosquitos & trail conditions

I second the headnet suggestion. It's always in my pack. 99 cents and a half ounce of additional weight.

Re: Delicate question

The underwear is a matter of personal preference, so I'll say that Bobcat1's advice to take enough to keep you happy is spot on. As to socks, I subscribe to the 3 pair theory. 1 pair is only for sleeping and never sees the outside of the tent/hammock/tarp so that they're always dry. The other 2 pair...

Re: Moose Hunting on Isle Royale?

As long as it's an International Biosphere Reserve, that will never happen. I'm guessing that even if it wasn't an IBR, the NPS wouldn't allow it to happen either.

Man oh man, does it fire some people up on the Facebook page though!

Re: New Stove

Thanks. It's good to know that it isn't finicky. Been reading some of the threads about gas usage, so I'll have to go get a couple canisters and start playing with it.

New Stove

An MSR Pocket Rocket 2 has made it's way into my gear totes in the garage. My alcohol and twig stoves are probably bullying it and throwing taunts at it like, "He doesn't even know why he bought you." or "What other brands of gas have you been with?" Still not sure why I bought it or what non MSR ca...

Re: Toilet Paper

Most of the outhouses I've encountered on the island have been surprisingly nice. That said.... One trick I've come up with is to put a matchbook in the plastic bag with your TP. Use the matches to cover some of the more ripe smelling outhouses located at the more popular campgrounds (like Daisy Fa...

Re: Easy Itinerary

With the new schedule posted and the way work and family schedules fall, we'll go in on 5/20 and come out on 5/24. That will let us do one night each at McCargoe, Richie, Moskey, and Chippewa. Hope the harbors are ice free and it's not still covered in snow at that time.

Re: Easy Itinerary

We'll probably make the call about Richie vs. Moskey when we get to Richie. You can't beat a sunrise at Moskey.

She's in full planning mode right now...for Grand Marais after we get off the island. :lol:

Re: Success fishing?

I swiped this from the NPS site a few years ago. I would believe it's still mostly valid. It's every lake on the island with the fish that are known to be in them.
