Report

I wrote up my report as linked above (https://irunmountains.blog/2020/09/03/north-country-trail-wisconsin-section-fkt-report/).

This was done supported style. Trackers were turned off nightly while not moving along the route and charged for the following days' miles. I used a Garmin In-Reach (very poor/no cell service almost everywhere along the route) along with my Garmin 935. I had a crew van that supplied me at road intersections with the trail. I had a few pacers for safety reasons, Megan, Kim, Jenny, Nicole, and Rich. I brought everything to refuel with me (in the van) since there weren't towns or places to resupply even in a supported effort along the route. Due to Covid, we tried to make ourselves very minimal while still bringing life and awareness to the trail. Site/data states 211 miles, but might actually be a bit longer.

This trail puts the wild in wilderness in Northern Wisconsin. It's very remote. I didn't bite off more than I could chew necessarily, but it was a lot more tougher expected given the miles.
