Re: 2021 Trip Advice: Minong Ridge, to Daisy Farm

They would not be in the same year, but which one I do first depends on the number of days off I can allow for that year. For the Minong ridge trip, I am thinking of going ...

Re: TR: 7/12-7/24 2019 End to end loop, Rock-Windigo Minong, Windigo-Rock Greenstone

That was quite the report, I enjoyed it a lot.
You are an animal for completing that.

I went across last year for the first time, and cant wait to get back. I was proud of myself for just going across once.
Thanks for all the detail. I am researching my next trip.
Thanks.

Re: Replacment Backpack Straps

I got a hold of a person at Kelty. They are working on getting me some options for replacements.
If it doesnt work out, I will post some pics, and ask for other solutions.

Thanks for the help.
