Re: First Trip

Thanks Ingo. I should have probably been more transparent. There is actually a sixth day and we will be staying in Windigo overnight to ensure more of a cushion/pickup time. Didn't add it to this list because it required no traveling, but without it being mentioned it looks much more tight. I also ...

Re: First Trip

That looks more reasonable to me. I would probably suggest doing it in the opposite direction, however. The trail out of Malone is probably the least used and maintained on the island, so it's possible that winter deadfall may not yet be cleared by the trail crews. And any transportation delays with...

Voyageurs

Talking about doing a sail camping trip with my brother in Voyageurs Nat'l Park next summer. Have never been, so any suggestions on campsites, lakes, etc. would be much appreciated! My brother's boat is a Welsford Navigator which he sails out of Superior, WI.

Re: First Trip

Also agree that those are awfully long days, especially for a first trip. It seems that a lot of first-timers say they did too many miles and plan to cut back on their next trip. For Day 1, keep in mind that the seaplane is most affected by weather (fog and wind) and therefore the least reliable sch...

Re: Going the Wrong Way - Ozarks Bound

Sounds like a nice trip. I assume it's pretty flat water judging from the boats? Any portaging?

Re: Cancelled June 2018 Trip / New 2019 Planning Underway

Sorry to hear that you had to cancel and hope for a quick and full recovery, and of course a great trip next year. I chose not to bring my tripod this year and missed some potentially great Milky Way pics--it was clear and awesome almost every night. So hard to get away from lights anymore, and we d...

Re: Fishing Kayaks on inland lakes

I would prefer a Kevlar canoe for the two of us, but not sure where to obtain one outside of purchase, which is not cheap. Beartrack Outfitters in Grand Marais, MN--on your way to the Voyageur. Sylvania Outfitters in Watersmeet, MI--maybe or maybe not or could be on your way to Houghton/Copper Harb...

I read somewhere that the Lodge was open an extra week this year, essential through the end of this week (9/9-9/15). Historically they close at the end of the week of Labor Day.
Yes, and it didn't appear to be slowing down.
