Gee, if she failed to appear three times, I can imagine what her attitude was when she was on the Island.

Re: Bucketlist

I've read both her books while on the island. That's the only way to go. It gives a real feeling of reality to them, even though it is fiction.

Re: First Aid

A well stocked first aid kit is a must, including pain meds (Vicoden), broad spectrum anti-biotic pills and creames, anti-diarrheals, plus the usual dressings, band-aids, etc. There are emergency personal location beacons that you can order. But those should only be used in an extreme emergency wher...

Chris and his wife were well know visitors to Malone Bay in the early spring and were also well known as organizers of the Friday Night Fish Fry at Malone Bay Campground in late May. He will b...

Re: Challenge: Funding George Desort's next Documentary

You did it. Forum members donated $275 to this project and it is over the top. If you haven't given, please do so (email me privately and I'll tell you where you can send donations). There are still matching funds out there.

Re: Challenge: Funding George Desort's next Documentary

OK folks, When I think of the number of forum members here, how much we spend to get to the Island and outfit ourselves, I'm a bit disappointed on the lack of participation in funding this project (less than $200 from forum members). I had a nice chat with George yesterday and I'm excited about this...

Challenge: Funding George Desort's next Documentary

I met George at Daisy Farm in May and we had a nice talk. I was intrigued by his project. So, here is the deal..... Isle Royale Forum Members. I have a source that will match your donation, dollar for dollar, up to a grand total of $1000.00. That's right, if the combined pledges from forum members o...

Re: Border Issues

Since you are a foreign national, lawfully admitted to the US, there will be no need to "check-in" with respect to your immigration status once you are on Isle Royale because you've never left Michigan and are not returning from travel outside the US. It would be the same if you traveled from Lansin...

Re: Hidden Lake to Rock Harbor on foot

For what it's worth...I hiked out to 3 mile and base camped. I did the 3 Mile to Hidden Lake as a day hike. I suppose it was a bit redundant, but I had a nice lunch at Hidden Lake and the trail, for the most part was flat and easy.

Re: Border Issues

It should not be an issue, but it might be wise to bring your passport/visa along. I've never heard of any of the vessels or aircraft being diverted to Canada, although I suppose there might be a very remote possibility that you could be airlifted to Thunder Bay by the Canadian Coast Guard. Isle Roy...

Re: dehyrated dinner gone bad

I don't generally use freeze dried foods since I got on a dehydrator kick a couple of years ago. But, I've found that many, especially those with meat, need to be simmered for a while even though they say they are fine rehydrating in the bag.

Re: Best $ for 3 guys at Grand Portage Casino?

I usually stay at The Outpost in Grand Marias. Then, I have a light breakfast (fruit, yogurt) in case the ride over is rough. Also, dinner at the Angry Trout the night before has become a tradition. Also, there is an outfitter there for those last minute purchases. Outpost is clean, knotty pined roo...
