    Welcome from Georgia, and welcome to HF. Just being curious, but how many days to do the 75 miles?

    The trip was a circumnavigation of the Kabetogama Peninsula in the Voyageurs National Park. Without pushing it very hard, we were able to complete the trip in five and half days. To avoid wind, we would be on the water by 6 and off by 1:30. I took a kayak (only one in the group) and probably worked less than those in canoes, except the one canoe where the rear paddler was using a kayak paddle. This setup pushes the canoe along very well and pretty much eliminates J-stroking.

    Unlike the BWCA, if you can’t find an unoccupied campsite you can camp in an undesignated campsite provided it is at least 200 ft from an existing occupied camp site. This is where the hammock shines. You don’t have to find a level clean area to pitch a tent. Many of the campsites in the northern Ontario provincial parks aren’t maintained or frequently used which makes more work when using a tent. You can always find suitable trees for a hammock in northern Minnesota or Ontario, so I think the hammock is a better solution when exploring less traveled areas.

    The tarp is an Equinox Globe Skimmer - 10 x 12.

    Voyageurs is just mind-blowing. My Uncle in law has a cabin on Cemetery Island where Namakan and Kabetogamma come together. Magic spot.

    Welcome from Louisiana.

    +1 on the tarp, my first glance I thought it to be closer to 16'. HUGE.

    Paddled by Cemetery Island. It's a beautiful paddle from the east end of Rainy down into Namakan and into Kab. I haven't been on the park's Kab-Ash hiking trail, though at 27.5 miles it could be a two day-er. It doesn't have the grand vistas of the Superior hiking trail, but would be interesting wilderness.

    Here in northern Minnesota, we're spoil with what we have.
