Re: [Info] Cross-Country Camping Zones

Has anyone successfully XC-camped in Zone 13? Or is it an intentional false positive (red flag for rangers)? Based on my measurements (squints and pushes glasses up my nose), it's not possible to be 1/2 mile from the Ojibwe Tower, 1/4 off the trail (Greenstone, Ojibwe, or Daisy Farm trails), and sti...

Any luck getting them to fully dry? Definitely don't want these to mold up on me!

Re: TR:Feldtmann Loop & Huginin Cove, August 26-30, 2020

OP thanks so much for this! Especially the bit about the Peak Design clip - which I just bought tonight. Allen wrench is officially on the pack list. Could've been a close call.

What's the deal with construction at Siskiwit Bay campground? First I've read about it.

Re: Winter Study 2021 Cancelled

Disappointing, but interesting, and understandable news. Any thoughts on how this will impact wildlife-human interactions this season? No change? Or friskier foxes, more curious wolves, or bullish meese?

Re: Maps

This looks like really great work, and I think I'd like one! Could you post a few better close-ups, like loup-view at 100%? It's pretty difficult to make out really any details. I can understand your apprehension to posting full-size close-ups, but it's kind of a deal-breaker for me to not be able t...

Tobin Harbor

Hi! I'm planning a backpacking trip, tentatively for June. But I'm wondering if there are any quick ways across Tobin Harbor if, for instance, I wanted to start my trek from Hidden Lake or Moose Point rather than the Rock Harbor Trail & peninsula. Are there any complementary canoes or kayaks for...
