Re: Test this out: Isle Royale Trip Calendar

Hmm.
I entered my info, clicked save, but didn't see the trip on the calendar.
What am I missing?

Duh! I missed the part about Admin Approval.
Too much of a hurry to try the new toy.

Re: In need of some suggestions for an Isle Royale Trip rout

Hi Aaron, Welcome! Not much activity on the forums lately. I am not a kayak-er so I have no suggestions for routes. There are many discussions in Canoeing, Kayaking & Fishing and in Trip Reports if you look back over the last two seasons. It does look like many travel from Chippewa Harbor to McCargo...

Re: USNPS Ranger III Photo's

That Ranger is some ship. I have only seen it when passing through Houghton.
The sailing schedule was always too restrictive for my needs, so I have only sailed on the Queen.
Thanks

Re: Shelter locations - table?

I agree that having a table inside is handy, especially in a long term rain situation.
It does bother me however that those whom moved the table in, did not move it back out when they left. Those suckers are heavy.

Re: trekking poles

I have been using my "stiks" for many years.
They are constantly in my hands on Isle Royale and have prevented many falls.
Even in SE Michigan, I carry at least one with me just in case.

Re: Favorite lightweight trail meals

We have been using the individual chicken/tuna/salmon packages for some time.
Not as light as dehydrated, but easy to obtain and more palatable then the re-hydrated proteins.
(I have not invested in a dehydrator)
Of course my favorite is the Spam singles.
