Re: Figure 8 hike

Just got home today from doing that exact route. Windigo to Feldman Lake was beautiful, but we were pushing the last half because of approaching thunder. (never turned into anything) Feldman to Siskiwit was pretty easy after the climb to the tower, but it got hot and still in the afternoon and the ...

Re: Family trip planning

The fish cleaning station is near the water on the gravel “road” as you are walking towards the Washington creek campground.

Re: Stove canisters and weight

carry 2 different ones if you need that much. Same reasons as above. One canister failure and you're SOL

We did a 10 day with one 8 ounce canister so keep that in mind. Make sure you need that much fuel.

Re: August Gear Suggestions

1. bug spray- we used a small container (3oz) of picaridin. Yes to the head nets 2. I always wear short "dirty girl" gaiters. They are worth it for me. No rain pants for me. They are hot and annoying. 3. It can get chilly at night. If you have a hood on a jacket you should be ok without a beanie but...

Re: Carrying Water

We used a collapsible bucket on the island. Worked for us. Sea to summit makes it. We just have the small one. Carried back to camp or used it at the dock. Both were nice. Pretty sure I saw y'all using that on your youtube series. Which, I'm also pretty sure, is what gave me the idea. Thanks for th...

Is there a depository for fuel cans? So we can’t fly out with fuel what do we do with it when leaving the island?
We gave ours to another group of hikers. They gladly took it.

Re: Status of flies and mosquitos now?

I would be on the safe side and treat them. The spray lasts a few washes so they will be good for your next trip after the island if bugs end up not being a problem. Better to be safe then sorry.
