Here's the schedule:
- Leave Chicago 7/30 - travel to Mattawan, MI - have a couple beers with and stay the night at my buddy's
- Travel 7/31 from Mattawan, MI to Drummond Island - decide if I want to camp at a campground or out on trail (hit trail if time allows)
- Trails 8/1 - all day
- Closeout on the island 8/2 - maybe a trail or two and then take off to the West side of the UP (Norway, MI) - visit another buddy and have some beers, camp on his property
- Travel home 8/2
A note for any who are interested in going - I'm planning to be self-sufficient, and I would expect the same of you. That's not intended to be a deterrent to coming or an @ss hole move - it's just so that we both know what to expect. When it comes to the trails, we'd tackle that with mutual benefit, but this ain't a charity, soup kitchen, or bed and breakfast.
Now that the mothering thing is out of the way - let me know if you want to go
