Re: Decent instant coffee

After reading some positive reviews, I bought a box of Mount Hagen instant coffee, which comes in single serving packets. It's actually surprisingly good for instant. One packet in 8 ounces of water seems to be about right, though some people might prefer 6 ounces. Tried Mount Hagen this morning an...

Re: Decent instant coffee

My first camp coffee was Maxwell House boiled in a pot of water (Folgers just wouldn't do ;)). So Starbucks VIA has worked pretty well for me. But I wouldn't mind finding something better, so it sounds like I should try Mount Hagen. And if I ever have a camping partner that hauls the french press in...

Re: TR 8/31-9/4, 2020. RH > DF > LC > RH > Scoville.

We talked about this a lot and decided we would do it again with the following amendments 1 - no granola / provide alternative breakfast ... would pick something high protein, I think boyfriend added protein gummies to his breakfast cookie? Maybe something like this or powdered protein shake? 2 - 3...

Re: First to sail a Sunfish Sailboat around Isle Royale???

Wow! Guessing you are the first. Looking forward to the videos and would love a trip report! What sort of conditions you experienced, VMG, etc. Had planned to sail camp with a small boat in Rock Harbor this year (hopefully next), but that would be transported on the Ranger II from Houghton and we wo...

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

It still astounds me that Garmin’s maps could be so out of date. They're based on the USGS 1:24000 quad maps. https://store.usgs.gov/map-locator They don't get updated very often--although these were updated in 2019, your Garmin maps don't reflect that yet. The previous version was 1985, which is w...

Re: Venture crew group trip

-Is there that much to do at RH, I guessed they just had a store and ranger station, what all can be done there. The Greenstone does not show much for this. (is it worth spending two half days there?) The 4-ish mile round trip hike to Scoville Pt is perhaps the prettiest on the island. A must do fo...

Re: 2021 Trip Advice: Feldtmann Loop

Here's a couple of videos of the loop in the other direction, and earlier at the end of May. Video quality is not great, but will give you an idea of the trails.

Re: Pike fishing

I haven't fished those areas, but it sure looks like there ought to be pike at the mouth of Washington Creek. They're generally found in the back bays of the big lake. Huginnin doesn't appear too pike friendly, however: pretty open and no vegetation. I'm just speculating, so hopefully someone with e...

There's also a long narrow smudge slightly below the center point extending to the right. Next time their tower climber goes up I hope he can clean it.
That was pointed out on FB too, so they're aware of it.

Re: Isle Royale Webcams

The new Mott Island webcam is definitely on a manually controlled positioning swivel or gimbal. It's been in three different major positions (that I've seen). They must move it around a bit more often and then try to return it to a home position. It's never quite the same one though. I'm still in l...

You could also include some "ditch" options if things don't work well, e.g. stopping at Daisy Farm on Day 1 and then continuing on to Moskey or McCargoe on Day 2 with a shorter overall itinerary.
Agree you need a backup plan, especially if the flight is delayed, which does happen due to weather.

Re: Houghton to Copper Harbor - No Car

Try Copper Country Limo https://coppercountrylimo.com/
There have been discussions on the forum--you may find other options if you search, but this is the one I remember being suggested.
Good luck on your journey! How does I.R. fit in?

Re: Sea kayak

Have you considered Voyageurs NP as an alternative? It's open, no logistics, and plenty of water. I haven't been, but was supposed to be last week--decided not to do the road trip there and back from NC due to covid concerns. I paddled Voyageurs a few years back and it was indeed lovely. My only gr...
