I've paddled through Shirley twice but never camped there. I think I'll plan fall trip to Shirley. Thanks for enlightening me!

Hey Drew, you wrote you got a new canoe. I remember you paddling a canoe like that in some of your other TR's. What canoe do you have? What's the story with them? They look light, but also delicate and maybe awkward for kneeling.

I would not hang it. Beyond the outliers (Yellow Yellow and such) bears can't open a Bear Vault or carry it away. If you put it in a bag or attach a rope to it, a bear now has some purchase that would allow it to be carried away.

I would pick Timberwolf every time. It's a beautiful quiet lake. Misty is a very overused lake IMHO. The good sites are really beaten down. Timberwolf sees much less traffic and has better fishing.

Portage Store employees have done that a couple of times. I think that's actually where Jeff got his info.

I've done a few long bushwhack portages in my time. My advice is to look for hardwood forests, high ground and do it in the early spring. Trying to push through creeks and black spruce swamps in summer can be impossible.

I have been told the hardest part of that route is getting out of Hailstorm Creek. Dense, wetland bushwhacking. The area is riddled with somewhat maintained trails which follow the Madawaska. There is also the remains of an old logging road which accessed the lumber camp. But, they go North/South down to the Wildlife Research Station and not East West.

I'm guess that was made a long time ago by someone working a logging dam. So Nip, Pet, Tim. Based on your most recent excursion and the location of historic cabin remains how about Longbow.
