It's a Far Northland That's a-Callin' me Away

Well, things have finally advanced to the point where I can make reservations for our summer trek with confidence. I have reserved ten ferry tickets on the Isle Royale Queen IV from Copper Harbor, Michigan, for Monday, June 13, with return on Friday, June 17.

I have also submitted our request for a backcountry permit to camp on Isle Royale. Our proposed itinerary is thus (any problems with the itinerary and they'll call me to adjust it).
Monday, June 13, depart Copper Harbor 8:00 a.m., arrive Rock Harbor on I.R., hike to Daisy Farm and camp.

June 14, hike to Lake Richie and camp.

June 15, hike to Chickenbone Lake East and camp.

June 16, hike the Greenstone Ridge to Threemile and camp.

June 17, hike back into Rock Harbor, shower, lunch, and catch the 2:45 ferry back to the mainland.

Now, I need to secure our first night's camping reservation in Wisconsin (probably Sheboygan State Park) and two nights at Fort Wilkins State Park in the U.P. (coming and going). Our last night on the road will be at one of our leader's cabin near Ludington, Michigan. And, I need to file the tour permit for all this.

It's coming along, though. Everybody pray for a good trek!
