Re: Wood Ducks

I havent seen any woodducks at the island yet, only mergansers and golden eyes. But we do have two nesting boxes in our backyard pond and we captured their nesting and hatch (+the ducklings jumping out) on film this year. It was SO COOL! In case anyone is interested: This is the ducks learning to us...

Re: 2021 Trip Advice: Minong Ridge, to Daisy Farm

Can’t speak to the back country permits but as far as the minong the beaver dams were the hardest for us. Especially the first one going East to west. We liked going East to west because our packs were their lightest on that 12 mile haul across three dams at the end. You can see that section on vide...

Re: Itinerary Critique, Suggestions or General Need-to-know.

That itinerary will work just fine! Nice sites and good mileage, your packs are a bit heavy for my taste but thats all personal preference. I would be happy to look over a gear list if you want to bring that weight down a bit. Regarding your route I would do moskey instead of chicken-bone personally...

Re: TR: July 6-10, 2020 Hiking the Greenstone [RH-LC-McC-SD-WC]

we had one of those types of rain storms right after finishing the minong in washington creek. The soil there held our stakes just fine but boy did we have a lot of water that afternoon. I was thankful for the bathtub style floor on our zpack triplex, and glad that the stakes held. It was SO LOUD in...
