Name: Steve (dad) and Pete (son)
Hometown: Blaine, MN
Arrival Date: Mon. Jul 19, 2021
Departure Date: Tue. Jul 27, 2021
Coming From/Via: Grand Portage via Voyageur II

Itinerary (To Be Determined):
Day 1, 7/19 - Grand Portage to Rock Harbor
Day 2, 7/20 -
Day 3, 7/21 -
Day 4, 7/22 -
Day 5, 7/23 -
Day 6, 7/24 -
Day 7, 7/25 -
Day 8, 7/26 -
Day 9, 8/27 - Windigo to Grand Portage

Notes/Other: Booked passage on the Voyageur II early to guarantee the dates we wanted. We have enough time to enjoy hiking the island from end-to-end. We hiked the Minong in 2007, 2008 & 2013 so it's probably the year to hike it again. Have plenty of time to finalize the itinerary before the trip!

Name: Alice (plus friend)
Hometown: Chicago, IL
Arrival Date: 6/25
Departure Date: 6/30
Coming From/Via: Houghton via Ranger III

Fri: Ferry arrives; Rock Harbor --> Daisy Farm
Sat: Daisy Farm --> Moskey Basin
Sun: Moskey Basin --> McCargoe Cove + afternoon hike to Minong Mine
Mon: McCargoe Cove --> Three Mile (via the Greenstone)
Tues: Three Mile --> Rock Harbor + afternoon hike to Scoville Point
Wed: Ferry departs

Notes/Other: It's our first trip to Isle Royale, though I've been lurking on these forums for almost 2 years! Due to sold out ferry dates, our trip is now 1 day longer than initially planned but I didn't increased our mileage. Trying to decide whether to make a backup plan with more aggressive mileage or to just lean into the extra camp time at Moskey Basin by stocking up on e-books.
