Re: Potawatomi Trail in Pinckney, Mi

Waterloo Pinckney is a ton of fun as well. Worth the linear miles. Just don’t go in the spring. The bugs are INSANE. We learned that lesson the hard way. The whole trail is wetlands. Mosquitos for days. If you saw the video, you know what I mean. My arms looked horrid with all the bites. The trail i...

Re: Potawatomi Trail in Pinckney, Mi

Post back a trip report on the High Country Pathway. That is one I haven't done yet. I would like to hear what you think of it.

Re: Potawatomi Trail in Pinckney, Mi

I like that trail a lot. It is a great one for training, new hikers, and trying out new gear. That northern gosling lake section is great for adding some miles for training, but can also be skipped if you dont want to tackle 18 miles yet. I noticed your SWD pack in the pictures :mrgreen: . Nice choi...

Enjoyed your trip report! I've seen several of your YouTube videos while researching for our trip but hadn't read this. I just finished a trip (9/7/18 - 9/15/18) with my husband, sister and a friend. Ours was pretty low mileage (MB-DF-3M-RH) but we had a great time. I did a day hike to Lane Cove an...

Bull Moose Party

We took a ton of photos on our recent 10 day trip but this one might be my favorite! We captured this photo at tent site #2 at Washington Creek the morning after finishing the minong. They gave us quite a show. We have video of this scene as well. You can check that out by following the link in my s...

Re: Windigo Store supply availability- August

Also maybe helpful to note when we started our hike in Rock harbor the gift shop there was WELL stocked as well. They had upwards of 10 canisters of fuel.

Windigo Store supply availability- August

Are you curious what the Windigo store offers for supplies around August? Here is an up to date video of their contents as of this year 2018. https://youtu.be/1r2_k8f3p-w Video was shot in early August. I see a few questions here are fuel availability and such so I thought this might be helpful to f...

Great report and nice job with your pack weight!
Thanks! I am so happy we are pretty lightweight even with 10 days of food. Some of the packs we saw there were monstrous :shock: ...I would not want a heavy pack on those trails!

Love the trip report. You're making me island-sick!

What was the diner -- Suomi? Kaleva? Both excellent choices if you haven't been there.
Suomi and we LOVED the food.
