Re: Gear & Supplies for August 2021 Trip

What I do want to know is what type of clothing should we be packing for August? I always bring light gloves and a light stocking cap. That is a year-round item I bring to Isle Royale for me.

I can't believe I'm just now seeing these pictures. The foliage in the fog is beautiful.

Re: AeroPress Go Coffee Maker

I am not much of a coffee drinker, but as a gadget person, I have wondered about how well this would actually work for a coffee afficionado. https://www.rei.com/product/784659/gsi-outdoors-ultralight-java-drip-coffee-maker It's very light and compact. I use this exact model and love it. I am a coff...

These two gentlemen do 99% of the work to keep the forum spam-free and organized. Without them, we wouldn't be able to enjoy the clean and safe forum we use to discuss everyt...

Re: Isle Royale Loons

It almost seems to me that loons are making a comeback everywhere. I saw some on the Duluth/Superior harbor the other day.

Re: July 3/4 in Campgrounds Near Windigo

Hugginin is small, so that could be full.

Feldtmann is a hike and will probably be ok.

Washington Creek is big but easily accessible, so it could be busy, but I still think you'll find a shelter.

Bottom line: The 4th isn't awful at Isle Royale.

Re: Combined Ferry Schedule - 2020?

Yes I just unsticking the post because it was for 2019. It's still out there and I would say the views indicate that it was a popular item. if you're up for making a new one for 2020, I would encourage it!
