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: Pontoon boat

It would be interesting, for sure. I think wind (and how pontoons just love to glide sideways) might be an issue if near the shore, of course, but being careful is what it's about. I've often thought some day about bringing out a Grumman square stern Sportboat/canoe to the Isle. Not entirely practi...

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...

Re: MSR Fuel Canister on seaplane?

Yea before we flew out we found some hikers that just got to the island the night before and they gladly took our partial can. Pretty easy to find partials or halfsies if you wander near the dock in the morning.

Re: MSR Fuel Canister on seaplane?

Re: June '11 Feldtman Loop

oh yea I am sure itll be overgrown. I am a huge fan of the minong, so I am not worried there, really hoping we can make the journey. If not, we will be booking for 2021 as soon as we can.
