Couple tips for your trip:
Lake County has a full-time patch between TG 38013 and the "old" multicast Law system. I confirmed the Two Harbors and Finland repeaters were still online and using the same CTCSS/DCS as in the database on this site.
I'm not sure now, but I think Silver Bay was still active also. Might want to double check. I can confirm nothing was heard on Isabella with tone 167.9 so a possible tone change or taken offline. Also heard nothing on 155.19 T167.9 which was always separate anyway. I'm not sure if it is used for something else or not.
Superior National Forest is definitely using 170.525 as posted last year, but I only heard field units talking to dispatch. I was listening in CSQ but using a scanner showed an output tone of 167.9 at one point. That may only be a single repeater output.
The field units I did hear did not specify if different repeaters were being used but I had very solid mobile coverage along the shore and portable in Grand Marais. I did not listen on the input frequency reported in the wiki to see if I could hear dispatch.
Maybe you can get more straightened out while you're there.
