Post Hike Showers

I'll be arriving on IR in 12 DAYS! So excited :D . Quick question as I gather, sort and resort my gear. Showers at RH, what's the current price and are towels included for the price? What to make sure I pack accordingly. I've read the 2022 Greenstone, but there's no mention. Thanks!

Re: trail runners and socks

I wore darntuff wool socks with ingeni liners with my tail runners in Dolly Sods recently. Feet were wet most of 3 days without a single blister or hot spot.

Re: Is new store in Windigo open yet?

So if Windogo store isn't open, where do I get fuel upon arrival?

Re: Zero day options: Todd Harbor or McCargo Cover and Why

Bobcat & S_R_L...thank you for your feedback. I'd prefer the solitude aspect and time to enjoy the island.

Re: Normally hang between the trees, but...

Thanks for the feedback. For this trip I’ll have a Warbonnet Superfly tarp that is plenty for coverage and with doors, can be pulled closed if it rains.

Normally hang between the trees, but...

I'm normally a hammock camper, but after reading the many postings of hammock use in IR, I'll become a ground dweller for this trip (Aug 20-27, 2022). I'm considering a 1-P tent or a Paria Breeze mesh tent & tarp combo (https://www.pariaoutdoorproducts.com/products/backpacking-tent-breeze-mesh-t...

Re: Isle Royale Season Pass (IRSP)

If you go to the form for the IR Season Pass (https://www.pay.gov/public/form/entry/101/97558762/), it states: "If you would like an Isle Royale Season Pass Wallet Card, you may exchange your season pass receipt at any park visitor center." Curious if anyone has the wallet card?

Re: Isle Royale Season Pass (IRSP)

S_R_L, that's your receipt or confirmation that you purchased a pass. When you arrive on IR, you can trade that in for a IRSP. I'm wondering if the IRSP is the same as the NPS season pass.

Isle Royale Season Pass (IRSP)

This will be my first trip to IR. I'm looking to put together a wall display of my trip when I return. Part of this will be an island map, some pictures and I was thinking the IRSP and anything else I can think of. My question, does the IRSP have any special imagery designating it as such? If not, I...

Re: [Tool] Isle Royale Trip Planner Spreadsheet

Ingo...thank you for the reply & direction. In planning my trip I believe I ran into an issue. From Hatch Lake / Greenstone Junction, there is no option for Hatchet Lake Campground or Minong Trail junction toward Todd Harbor. You can only travel to: Ishpeming Point, Desor, or Island MIne /Greens...

Re: [Tool] Isle Royale Trip Planner Spreadsheet

Ingo, I appreciate all the effort you put into developing this sheet...thank you! However, when I save a copy, I'm having an issue. After selecting my starting point (Windigo), the next cell C9, only gives me the option to _End_Of_Trip (Windigo or Feldman). I've checked on each of the ininery sheets...
