Re: Itinerary Critique, General Help for First Time Trip

Considering doing 1 night at Huginnin and just staying 1 night at mine, 2 each at feldt and siskiwat. That's what I would suggest. I'd also do the Feldtmann loop first, that allows the option of leaving off the Huginnin loop if it seems like too much at the end. Something like: 1 - Island Mine off ...

Re: TR 9/17/21-9/24/21

Thanks for the report! Too bad you didn't get more paddling in, but we know what Sept can be like. Apparently taking bikes across the lake on the ferries has become more common, since both the VII and QIV list them on their rates. Years ago I was on the VII the first time it was done--no one seemed ...

Re: Itinerary Feedback

I agree with dcclark about the zero day, and would also skip Rock Harbor the first night. Maybe something like: Three Mile McCargoe Moskey Daisy Farm Then take a down day at either McCargoe or Moskey, both are great. This also shortens the longest day to McCargoe a bit I think. The mine near McCargo...

I had a moose stand over my tent and eat for over an hour one night at Feldtmann. There was a hoof print 1' from my tent. So I believe Gary!

Re: Windigo stores last day?

The Greenstone newspaper says 9/11, so should be normal open hours until then. But closing for the season is a process--some things will be out of stock before then, and it's not out of the question that you could buy some things after that, if it's convenient as they're closing up (especially peris...

Re: Horne Fire

There's a bunch of new pics. The last is this pretty stark view of Monument Rock. Will have to try and get a shot from the same spot in a year or two to see the regrowth.

Re: Horne Fire

Any idea if the old post office dock on Minong Island got burned? Looks like the island burned over, except for the eastern end where that big cabin stands. That Tobin Harbor post office was one of the quirky little things on IsRo. The VII stopped there to drop off mail, and occasionally hikers cou...

Tomorrow could be interesting, with wind gusting to 30 kts from the east https://www.windy.com/48.002/-88.841?47.093,-88.882,8
Hopefully they get some of the rain.

Re: Horne Fire

We are scheduled on Voyageur II this Saturday to go to McCargoe Cove and sea kayak around Amygdaloids for several days and then hop back on Voyageur II to come around to Rock Harbor. However, now Lane Cove and Duncan all closed, so trying to figure out if we should cancel or re-plan the trip to a r...

That's over 1.5 miles east of the portage. Did it move that far overnight? Also looks like smoke near Scoville Pt.

Re: New Windigo Store

The store is open til 9/11. But supplies will be limited as they don’t reorder late in the season, especially perishables. Hard to say exactly what they may be out of though.
