Of all portages in Chiniguchi I've been to in 2011-12 maybe Rawson crossover requires some attention. Particularly, if I remember correctly, the last leg of the 1600m portage from the Sturgeon along Halleck creek (where the trail leaves logging road) had some deadfall.

we did that "bog monster" in 2010 and from what ed says it's still the same.
if you're looking for a project this is it, since (assuming it's still the same or worse) it needs 20-40 logs to make it passable without getting your knees wet...
which means the logs should be got from a wide area since we don't want to clearcut the portage!

Consider the Rawson crossover cleared up and the "bog monster" slayed. I have time on my hands this spring and figure I could use it productively. I spend a lot of time camping in that area and am always looking for something to do!

Was the bog monster slain? That horrible stretch was one reason I was avoiding that loop this summer (the pansy that I am). :-)

I am sure the bog is bad this year, too.

Thanks Brian - I had asked in another thread in the forum about accessibility to Maple Mountain without bushwhacking. Any reports of people navigating to Tupper Lake by water or are the water levels still extremely low? Thanks!

Northern most campsite on Wolf Lake- Chiniguchi. The thunderbox could use some attention. The top is broken, there are boards missing (on the seat) and what is left of the seat is patched (for now) with duct tape. New to (seat area) and reattaching the lid is required.

This box was removed on August 16th. A non conforming box from the next campsite south was taken out of service , refurbished with a new lid and installed on the Northern campsite on the same date.

While we are on boxes… a second box was installed on the high rock campsite ( next campsite south) as that site is seeing extensive use.

Wow... Ed is like instant YouTube for the north country! (How many others out there go around the outback taking pictures of delapidated thunderboxes?)

Just back from 4 days From Laura Lake north to the Sturgeon through Fredrick, etc. All big things cleared, some brushing, all trails now easy to see. Met several people along the way, all super grateful.
Moved the T box on the beach at McConnell Bay.This McConnell Bay box is ancient, boards rotting away. The site needs at least 2 boxes. preferably 3 or 4 given the heavy use. Still, there was very little garbage around the area. We hauled out a big bag of stuff from back in the bush that was left behind by one group, probably last year.
Two boxes on Dougherty are fine as is. The Stouffer campsite is in great need of a box. The Fredrick campsite is little used.

Thanks for your work, red_pine.

Did you get into the Backdoor or Parsons portages ?

Did not look at the Backdoor or Parsons. We did look at the first portage out of McConnell toward Marjorie. It was fine.
Also bushwacked from McConnell to Musko Bay. Definitely no portage there. But there is a bear-baiting trail up from Musko.
