I hope you're able to monetize it to cover the costs of this forum.
I'll never put ads on any Isle Royale Forums stuff. The one time I needed to pay a web hosting bill for this Forums, I received more than enough donations to cover it. That's how good the community is here. :D

Re: Thanks for the Civility!

I have been tracking this forum (for many years now) and the Facebook page, which has the benefit of more pictures. I can only go to the Facebook page so often because of the negative and sometimes rude comments or injection of politics into the discussion. Thanks tot he moderators and participants...

Re: Female wolf dies

Ed & hooky, you are correct...this stuff happens. Unfortunately for the NPS, it's going to further steel the mindsets of those who were against this idea of re-introduction from the start. This was already a sensitive subject before it began, and this won't help diffuse the tension any.

Well, this isn't good news for the NPS' effort to re-introduce wolves to the park.

Re: Up to 6 wolves to be introduced this fall

Kind of weird how it takes years and years to figure out if they want to release wolves on the island again, and then when they say they want to, they're just all of the sudden releasing them and coming back shortly with some more. Also, how terrified does this thing look? First, it goes to sleep in...

10 days! Good for you guys.

Your description of the mornings (beautiful sunrises, crisp air, lapping water) absolutely drive me insane...how much I miss those sights and sounds! Thank you for sharing your trip report.

Re: Rock of Ages lighthouse restoration 2018

Sorry to keep bumping this thread, but I don't want to start a new post just for this: The report for the 2018 Rock of Ages lighthouse restoration work is available here. It's a good wrap-up of what we accomplished in this year's short work season. I think it sounds like it wasn't a lot of hard work...

Re: Electronics

I intend to escape from technology on these trips, too. It's hard for me as a millennial, and it seems like the only chance my neck and wrists get from the positions they are in when I use computers and phones. However, my phone and GoPro always tag along with me. I think of it this way: my phone is...

Re: Three people evacuated

Wow, great video to see them in action. Glad everyone was safe, thanks to their effort.

Does this helicopter have to hit a refueler after the trip out to the island, loiter time, and then the flight to Duluth?
