Looks like the boys had a great time together! Hope you both have many more trips together.

Goose - We must have just missed you. Did you find my socks? There's a $.50 reward for their safe return :) Nice report btw!

Nice report and I looked at you photo album. Smart move on not taking any risks and laying up. Very nice photos of the pictos. What model of the Eureka Tent is that... a Tetragon 9? How did it perform in the rain/wind for you?

Bojibob: Not well! Not recommended. I got this tent after my old Timberline 4's floor developed pinholes all over it and was leaking . . . I may repair/re-waterproof it for my next trip. T9 tent is smaller, lighter, and sets up quicker, but has plastic poles unlike the TL's aluminum. Poles started to buckle in the wind, before we set up the canoe as a windbreak and re-guyed the fly. Rain found its way in one way or another. (One of the short poles that go over the front door and back window broke the second time we set it up. IMO they are too long for the stress they're under.)I called Eureka for a replacement, and THEY ARE ON BACKORDER! No surprise there.

Bojibob/all: Sorry, it's NOT the Tetragon 9, it's the 7. (Seven foot square).

I really enjoyed spending my lunch hour with this trip report! Glad to see I made it onto your map too. :-) We stayed two nights at your Elk lunch site in 2004, and also at your Darky site that year. But it sounds like June 2009 was very different from August 2004. Good times!

Snakecharmer: Don't remember finding any socks. Found an MSR "ground hog" tent stake somewhere on the trip -- a bombproof stake. When were you there and how much did we miss you by? Did you see the turtle, too? ;-) Wish I was back up there right now!

Are you sure it wasn't a Big Anges X stake? I think I lost one somewhere along the way and I was with snakecharmer.

mr. barley: Nope, got it right in front of me -- MSR Ground Hog -- pretty thing, too, red aluminum, very light. Maybe that big turtle at the "Deer Camp" ate the Big Agnes X. ;-) I'll keep an eye out for it on my next trip up that way . . .
