Re: Delicate question

(not applicable to IR but when winter camping - double those amounts)

Re: Viking Cruise Ship on Superior in 2022

Oh I hope cruises don’t ever stop by the island. Talk about ruining the solitude.

Re: New Stove

We also have the original pocket rocket 1. It’s always been reliable. It’s the only piece of gear I’ve never considered upgrading over the years.

Re: What Food Is Best?

We like packit gourmet as well. Good stuff for sure. Freshest dehydrated food on the market in my opinion. We did a little video series on what we packed for food on our last trip to the island. Here's a link to the first one if you're interested:

Re: Best stove for new backpacker

A simple canister stove is the way to go. I have an original pocket rocket (MSR) and it has never failed me over the years.

Re: Trip Help

Maybe try a shorter 1 night backpacking trip on the mainland to shakedown and see if you can do the back country style instead of the cabin. That way you might know if you fears are legit about carrying all your gear.

Re: Toilet Paper

Our last trip we started rationing because every privy's tp was empty except windigo. The previous year we had no issues and it was pretty well stocked. I would say it is a shot in the dark whether you'll have a bunch or none at all. Plan to bring enough for yourself.

Re: Leaving from Copper Harbor but want to hike Windigo to RH

yea what Inca Roads said is your only option (seaplane or voyager). Don't discount going RH to Windigo though. I really loved that hike and ending in windigo was perfect for us.

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.
