Has anyone been out recently and packed for June, only to feel like you were under equipped? I am in no way an ultralight hiker, but I try to pack as light as possible with the gear I have and so I have been going back and forth with my cold/cool/warm gear as I look at all the weather reports. We will be there over the 4th of July week.

I paddled/portaged from Rock Harbor to Malone Bay. I have personally named the unnamed island south of Ryan Island on Siskiwit Lake, "Moose Island." While solo paddling my canoe from Wood Lake to Malone Bay at 6:00 AM, a cow moose and a calf swam from shore to the unnamed island, right in front of my canoe!
As usual, I met many nice and interesting people while there!
By the way, bugs were no problem. I did treat my cloths with permethrin. I also tried the thermacell repellant device. It screws onto a small fuel canister. It seemed to work great
