Ya...life should be good when you have the time and money to constantly go to Isle Royale within one month of your last trip :roll: State the obvious much? :lol: Hope you have a great time. Can't wait to see the pictures :wink:

Sitting in my room at the North Port in Copper Hbr. (the lowest rates in town) Forecast is pretty breezey tomorrow so the ride on the Queen should be awesome, they are calling for seas about 5'. My brother is already on the Island with our sailboat "Percheye" I will sail back in a few days aboard our boat. Raining most of the day here with some thunder and lightinig. I guess it's off to the Pines for some beers and maybe a stop at the new Brickhouse Brewery! Ishould draw a few looks and comments in the morning.... Backpack on, laptop case in one hand and a 30 pack of La'Batts beer in the other hand.

Got home yesterday from a few days on the Island again. Lots of rain up there and trails were running like rivers. Bugs are out in force in certain areas. I rode the Queen up and returned on my sailboat "percheye". See unsaltedsailing.com and Capt. Paul on facebook Where I have started writing a little about my boating trips.
Spent a couple days exploring Tobin by sailboat and dinghy. seen a few moose in Tobin also. The last night we spent in Chippewa where I met JerryB from the boards. It was a long sail back to Pequamming..14 hrs nonstop but the weather was perfect out on the open lake.
Unfourtunatley my camera got wet on the first night so no pics this time. Looks like I won't get back up until late July-early August :| then hope to get one more hiking trip in September so don't feel to bad for me.
