Re: Submissions for PICTURE OF THE WEEK go here

Well my IR geography sucks. Looking at where it falls in my album I'd say it may be from between where the trail from Lane Cove hits the Greenstone Ridge, and Mt. Franklin. The Mt. Franklin marker picture is a couple after it, and I know I was coming from Lane Cove headed for McCargoe Cove that day....

Re: Who wants to play a little route A vs route B?

Tom - Right now I'm really leaning towards B and probably in reverse. I was only considering Huginnin as another one of those zero-day dayhike options were I to shave a day going in my original direction based on what I know about myself at the end of trips and the 10.2 miles being on the short side...

Re: Who wants to play a little route A vs route B?

Start light, but wear your pack if it's the first hike of the season The other option is to go to Three Mile, just to knock that off. Definitely won't be my first trip. I'm hoping to have two or three under my belt by May. My pack fully loaded for 5 nights is still only around 20lbs. Since I'm fami...

Who wants to play a little route A vs route B?

I got my Sanity check on Hatchet Lake to Siskiwit Bay (thanks). Nice to see others lurking and ready to talk routes while we weather the off-season. I'd go nuts if I wasn't planning 2012 trips. I have two potential routes for IR in mind so far. Last time I was on IR was the end of August/beginning o...

Re: Sanity Check - Hatchet Lake to Siskiwit Bay

Thanks for the tips. I think one of my favorite things on my Pictured Rocks trip was the abandoned car so a locomotive would be cool.

Sanity Check - Hatchet Lake to Siskiwit Bay

I'm looking at potential routes for my second trip to IR. While I'm not a triathlete or anything I cover a fair amount of ground. Not sure how many days (i.e. how much food weight) I'll be looking at yet but my base is under nine pounds and I'll probably be in the low twenties with food and water at...

Re: Route Sanity Check - McCargoe to Windigo?

Thanks for the input. To be honest the Minong sounds like my kind of trail, but after planning routes til' crosseyed I had to remind myself - I can make more than one trip. I am pretty sure if/when I return it'll be a "Minong-specific" route. I didn't want to do what sounded like the most difficult ...

Route Sanity Check - McCargoe to Windigo?

I've been lurking a bit and really enjoying the forums here. I will be making my first trip to IR at the end of August/start of September so I figured it was time to get an account and start picking brains. I was originally looking at Rock Harbor to Windigo, but I'm trying to do Monday through Satur...
