Re: Post Hike Showers

They are totally worth every penny. You can get a towel and a bar of soap (think like a hotel bar). Return bin is by the laundry.

The old one is still open. They are talking about the new one.

Re: Feldtmann loop or not

I wouldn’t skip siskiwit for Feltdmann. We spent two days there it was so nice. Big beautiful brand new dock and great swimming. Feltdmann is nice for moose watching and was a pretty site but no swimming. We skipped island mine and went straight to windigo. The loop is definitely worth doing once. Y...

Re: Hiking Boots vs. Hiking Shoes

I’ve exclusively worn trail runners on the island. My husband prefers a hiking shoe. I like the breathability, quick drying, lightweightness of trail runners. My feet feel far less fatigued and are blister free at the end of the day vs wearing boots. I’ve done many long miles (including the ridges) ...

Re: What are you spending your 2022 REI dividend on?

Probably a percolator for car camping trips and a new pair of trail runners. Can’t go wrong with an extra set of darn tough socks too!

Re: Finishing early

I guess I’ve never thought about leaving early!! But I’ve definitely considered staying longer.

Re: trail runners and socks

I wear darn dough socks. Your shoes will dry so fast, you'll love it.

Re: Itinerary help for first timer

Is there any way you can extend your trip by a couple days?

Re: Itinerary feedback

Chippewa would be an excellent spot to zero. I definitely enjoyed our one stay there and would do it again. MCC has always been packed when we were there.

Re: 7/12/21-7/18/21 [HIKING](Feldtmann loop)

Day 7: Last morning on the island We woke up early by alarm (gosh I hate setting alarms on the island) so we wouldn't miss our flight out. After hitting the snooze at least once, maybe twice, I rolled out of bed to look for moose while Matt headed up to use the "luxery bathrooms". haha. Th...

Re: 7/12/21-7/18/21 [HIKING](Feldtmann loop)

This whole trip report has been wonderful, but I'm especially excited to see your notes about your paddling. Was the paddle out to Beaver Island worth dealing with the boat traffic? A couple months I asked a question about this elsewhere on the forum because I'm planning to rent a kayak for a half ...

Re: 7/12/21-7/18/21 [HIKING](Feldtmann loop)

Day 6: Trying something new ... oh and a few moose too! We woke up fairly early and as I was meandering my way back to the shelter from the privy I hear the classic "splooshing" of a moose in the creek. I wander towards that spot on Washington creek near the privy (not a tent site) but rig...

DARN IT! It was probably obscured by underbrush. I knew it was in that area. I couldn’t see it. So close. Haha

Somehow we missed the steam engine. I’ll trade coordinates with anyone that knows where that is ;)
