Re: 7/12/21-7/18/21 [HIKING](Feldtmann loop)

Nothing like an out-of-season trip report to boost the holiday spirits! Keep them coming, sneakymonkey! I can't wait to hear how the crossing of Senter point went!

me too! My burning questions are: where is the whining bridge? And is it OK to post a link to the recording (which is how I watched it, due to bedtimes)?

DOH! I always get that backwards. So it's 7 pm Pacific, 10 pm Eastern, 9 pm Central, and 8 pm Mountain time.

Me too! Reading between the lines, 7 pm is pacific time, right? So this will happen at 4pm Eastern?

Re: TR 9/17/21-9/24/21

that sounds like a very satisfying and contemplative stay! But your talk of an outback (pizza??!!) oven intrigues me. Can you say more? Is it a dry baking system?

Re: TR: 9/6-9/16, 2021 [Rock to Windigo via a mix of trails]

We've had a bonanza of debut posts in the form of trip reports! Thanks for this one. I admire your good sense in concocting such an excellent itinerary for your first trip. Have you developed a scheme for your next one? And are you allowed to say more about how to find the apples at Daisy Farm?

Re: TR: 8/30-9/10, 2021 [Rock to Windigo via mixed route]

thanks for the detailed and highly readable report. I admire the format of your trip: you took real advantage of basecamps at Windigo and Rock Harbor, and also of the trails in between! Could you tell us more about how the Windigo mail drop worked? Extensive uninformed study of webpages left me with...

Re: How much should you assist other hikers on their plans?

Bear in mind that, at least some of the time, those with "ambitious" agendas understand what they're proposing to do, and have a good reason to believe that they'll enjoy (in some sense of "enjoy") it. For those souls, something like, "Wow---what is that, 22 miles?" (wh...

Your thimbleberry problem sounds like a good problem to have. And I'm with you on the last few miles into Siskiwit Bay from the fire tower -- I think that's the hardest stretch of trail on the island! Looking forward to further installments. With meteors on night one and the aurora on night two, the...

"playback on other websites has been disabled"...and when I click through, I get dumped in what looks like a generic you tube page.

Looking forward to the TR!

Re: 8/18-24 McC-Moskey-Chippewa-Windigo and some observations

thanks for the report! I envy you the beaver quartet sighting. And I share your shelter etiquette intuitions as well! I always turn my permit (and sometimes other permits I've found along the way) in when I'm done walking, so I can't check. But if ISRO permits have a blank overside, it might be rein...
