I think the original poster was referring to the San Juan islands specifically. I've never taken a car and have only gone by seaplane from Seattle into Friday Harbor. Whether a car is advisable depends on what the plan is once you hit the ground on the islands

But yes, the route described is somewhere in the 12ish hours of driving range which would easily fit into a two week trip.
The plan currently is 3-4 days making the loop followed by 10-12 days on the San Juans, which is why I was asking about a rental car on the islands.

@montanamike today someone also suggested Saturna Island. Have you been? Since it’s just across the border into CA, is it possible to get there in these days of lingering Covid?

Thanks,

Daniel

You can’t cross the border for tourism currently. Full stop.

Ive not been there... As far as I know, you cant even get to Point Roberts (connected to Canada by land) without going by boat currently. My visits to the San Juans have been limited to morning flights up, late afternoon flights back so I am of limited help at best other than to say splashing down on a float plane in Friday Harbor is a very cool experience.

Finally had a chance to take a photo of my elk tan (?) bounty hunter:

Still very unsure about the leather. The tongue is noticeably thinner on these than on my black elk tan SD's, but I don't know if that means anything. The SD's are also ~15 grams heavier per boot but that could be the 430 vs commando half-sole. Kyle has of course offered to remake them but I don't want to trouble them if I'm wrong.
Side note, the brown is remarkably close to the black.

Here's the SD's for reference:

Kyle has told me that black elk tan is not teacore. It's the main reason I chose black cxl for one of my builds over elk.

Edit: the black leather in Chirkelnel's bounty hunters clearly has a brown core. I would be interested to know if these are really black elk tan.

Pictures of your boots convinced me I could pull off BHs or SDs as dress boots and don't need any other brand of dress shoes/boots!!

That's brown elk tan (or possibly the thinner brown dress), not black.

Like @iamntbatman said, the top boot (BH) is brown and the bottom boot (SD) is black. Bottom boot is definitely black elk tan, it’s the new boot on top that I’m not sure if it’s brown dress or brown elk tan.
