Re: Delicate question

Concur with Bobcat1. But would bring 3 pairs of socks, too. Especially if I think I may want socks to sleep in, in which case only use that pair for sleeping. If it rains a lot things may never get the chance dry out.

Viking Cruise Ship on Superior in 2022

Well this is interesting. Just hope the facilities on I.R. are inadequate enough that it's never a question of whether it stops or not...

Re: New Stove

I have its predecessor, the Micro Rocket, and it's been great. Haven't had any issue with any brand of fuel. I use a firesteel to light it--a little trial and error to figure out how much to open it (not too much) and how close to get (closer than you think), and then it's quick and easy. Most relia...

Re: General Info on MV Sandy

Is a 16 foot rental boat a realistic option(if price isn't a factor) for two people wanting to just camp around Rock Harbor - Moskey basing for a few nights? Absolutely. Am planning to do something similar this summer in my brother's 16' sailboat--won't be leaving Rock Harbor. Let's you get to the ...

Re: General Info on MV Sandy

You can try the number here. Even though it says "Summer" I saw something else that implied they may be answering it now. But you may need to be a little persistent in trying.

Re: Voyaguer & Sea Hunter Schedule 2020

Full schedule through Sept 20th. Seems to get later every year. Is all that advice about going after Labor Day to avoid crowds is backfiring ;)? I'm curious as to how late the concessions will stay open this year. I think last year was the 15th?

Ranger III Online Reservation System

You can now make Ranger III reservations for 2020, BUT the online system is being upgraded and won't be ready "for a month, or 2" (i.e. sometime in Feb.). This is not clear on the park website (at least not as of today--it lets you start the process). So you'll need to call the Houghton office at 90...

Re: Easy Itinerary

I have been in a similar situation, although even 5 mile days would be pushing it with Mrs. Ingo. So what we did as my add-on to our U.P. vacation, was stay at the RH lodge and did the Passage Island tour and day hikes. Getting out to Passage Island was on my bucket list and you pretty much have to ...

Re: Will I need a sleeping bag liner?

I’ve used a 35 deg bag and a silk liner and have been fine on IR, a bit chilly in the 30s. I also have a heavier liner that doesn’t help as much as it seems it should. I don’t use a liner with my 25 deg bag—extra weight and they’re a bit annoying to crawl in and out of. But as bobcat1 says it’s more...
