We are prepped and ready to leave for Isle Royale. Early tomorrow morning, we will make the 12-13 hour drive to Copper Harbor in order to board the passenger ferry Friday at 8 am. We should arrive at Isle Royale around noon, weather permitting, and plan to spend 8 days hiking, camping, taking in beautiful scenery, and hopefully viewing some wildlife.
We've heard stories of recent bad weather (On Lake Superior? There must be some mistake.) and of people getting stranded due to the ships being unable to sail and the sea plane being grounded. Hopefully we will be able to travel to and from the island without incident, but if I don't show up for work on Monday 9/14, I'm probably hunting for berries in order to stay alive in the rain and fog.
