IR hacky [relocated from Itineraries]

Post by torpified » Wed Jan 31, 2018 5:31 pm

Nick posted this to the itineraries section of the Trip Reports forum:
Plan on getting dropped of at Chippewa Harbor, eventually paddling over to Malone Bay. Once I complete that paddle, I will have circumnavigated the island and will have hiked every trail on the island, some more than once. It's only taken me 40 years!
Which is spectacular! What I want to know from Nick is: once you've been every place, are you going to start over? And if so, where?

And how many trips over that 40 years did it take to accomplish the feat?

Bravo, Nick!

I've probably been there 20+ times. I'd have to go back through my journals to get an exact count. All first boats except for one trip in July with my daughter and post-Labor Day in 2016 with my wife.

Once I've finished that last 10 miles, I'll start on another ISRO bucket list:

First and foremost, and this will probably never happen, be with John Henegan when he catches a fish. He's claimed to have caught fish, but I've never seen him catch one.

Spend a week or so just exploring Tobin Harbor from three mile to Blake Point while base camping a Merrit Lane Campground.

See and photograph the Northern Lights.

Meet more of the finest people in the world while in ISRO.

Some...but, portages are portages, trails are trails. :) Haven't done the Tobin Harbor to Duncan Bay or the Lake Richie/Chippewa Harbor to Lake Siskiwit ones.
