“No, we realized we’d miscounted,” he says, waving at her to stand up so he can toss the rope into the compartment she was sitting on top of.

This captain is very different from the by-the-book guy we had on the way out to the island. For one thing, he’s in cut-offs, a T-shirt, and bare feet. His beard makes him look a bit like a hippy. I hope he’s better at sailing than he is at counting.

... out alone. We see moose prints, but no moose. We also pass buildings mentioned in the book I’ve been reading, but luckily encounter neither Windigo nor killer wolf-hybrids. We trudge back to camp. Later we take a second tour of the Nature Trail but still see no moose.

... of saw blade. And like the TM, the Minong presents obstacles (oh, wait, I mean “opportunities”) to be overcome.

If we do indeed spend the night out of a campground, we need to make it to zone 20, which is about six miles into the hike. This is our first obstacle: Figuring out where the heck we are. The trail has no mile markers. There’s no line drawn across the landscape telling us when we’ve changed zones. All we can go by are features we find on the ...

... long it would take to reach our destination if I crawled the whole way.

This is supposed to be the hardest day of our trip, at least according to the trail guide, which warns that even strong, experienced hikers should expect to take at least four hours to hike the 5.5 miles between Little Todd and Lake Desor. Last time I did this stretch, the sun was bright and the heat about killed me. Today is cloudy, so heat won’t be a problem. I just have to avoid being hit ...
