Re: First Trip Memories

Late 70s! Holy cow! ;) My first trip to IR was with my girlfriend...her father had been coming here since the 60s, and came back at least two times every year since. We decided to check it out. Being as I wasn't a very hearty outdoors man, we decided to take the easy Indian Portage trail, from McCar...

Re: All I want for Christmas...

Good idea to keep the forums active, Tom!

"Stocking Stuffer" - Can't get enough socks
"Good 'Ol Gift" - New micro fleece
"I bribed Santa" - Lots of snow this year! Or a new Blackberry Storm. I'm a gadget geek ;)

Re: Anyone hear about this?

My goodness, that is pretty terrifying. I honestly haven't heard of any legit wolf-human attacks before, so this was quite startling.

I didn't read the other links because they are blocked here at work, but is it possible these animals were rabid?

Re: The web site hosting bill is due! Wanna help out?

I was conveniently on the island when the bill came due. However, I would like to add my thanks for what you've done with this thing. Not only has it been useful for trip planning, etc., but it keeps me going through the winter, and also gives me something to do at work. You didn't hesitate to set ...

Re: What does Barack mean for the environment?

I'm completely unaware of Obama's environmental policies, that's why I asked the question. I'm going to have to do a tad bit of research, I reckon.

Like johnhens, I'm hoping he dumps some funding into the NPS as well, but mostly I'm worried about the Great Lakes too.

Re: Anniversary

I'm glad everyone is enjoying it. Just the other day, I was talking about Isle Royale and someone said, "have you ever checked out the forums about IR on the internet?" I laughed, and thought it was amazing that people are checking it out, and that word is spreading!

Re: Rolf and John need your help!!

Thanks for posting this. I got the email, but didn't get a chance to put it up here. An excellent opportunity for anyone. I have a friend going back to school and plans on participating in this to augment his studies. What a helluva idea.

Re: Wolves vs Moose Showdown

We just do not act like prey. When a wolf appears we go towards it, talk to it, point at it, call others over. We interact cooperatively, which I suspect the wolves can detect, since they do the same thing. I think that's a very good point right there. This is very true. Plus, we're snapping pictur...

Hey kvanorsdel, and welcome to the site.

I usually head out to the island about the same time every year, so I'm sure we'll see you out there! 8)
