It's too bad that so few have every taken in that remoteness and solitude or even know how enjoyable it is up there. There may have been a lot less excuses.

I'm most likely going. I don't want to miss it. Not 100%, but close.

Both. They have a ten unit hotel and a large campground. Although I think a lot of the campground is now seasonal.

Diane knows a group of us usually come up in the fall so she has plenty of sites for us. She'll fit us in.
I can't blame her for wanting to keep some monthly revenue but her and Ernst did rearrange the campground a few years back and made more of the sites accessable. And they divided up a few others that were much larger than they had to be. They's also been upgrading the electric one secion at a time.
Some of the stuff right on the main drive in that goes to the back now had either 30 or 50A service. Most of the seasonaly all have 50A now.

This was buried in a later post

I'm tossing the idea out there to see if there is any interest.
Probably planning the last weekend in September. Which may be the busiest because of 'other groups', but it doesn't get into bear season for that area.
I'll check into that more as the date gets closer.
Will stay @ Blueberry from 26nd to the 30th.
My runs will consist of exploring some of the lesser travelled trails we used to know of and see what new logging / skidder trails have been put in recently.
Much of that stuff is up by Batchawana River and Chippewa River and the trails leading into the bush.
No overnight runs are planned at this time. This is a just a relaxing exploration run.
If you're interested please post up.
