outside of the U.P. and Isle Royale
“Mitten only. Everything else is too far of a drive for right now. What about southern Wisconsin?
Jordan River Pathway? Manistee River Trail/NCT loop? Sleeping Bear Dunes? something else?”
“the Manistee River Tr/NCT loop was nice when I did it a fair number of years ago”
“Detroit, south of 8 mile, I hear from people who live up there its nice. Wear running shoes..”
don't fergeit the pitbull and a .40 either...”
“When you thinkin Crash?”
“In a week.”
“I'd say either the U.P. or Isle Royale. Oh, wait.....
We kinda like the Hoist Lakes area near Grayling/Mio. I'll check with Tarabull to see if she has some other choices besides the ones you named above.”
“oh, to bad.
still want to hike pictured rocks.”
“Hoist Lake in Michigan
“Tarabull echoed the Hoist Lakes area, the Manistee River Trail/NCT loop, and threw in the High Country Pathway. Shoot one of us an email for maps or info if you need to.”
“Hey look---this is almost a real backpacking site today!”
“High Country Pathway??? does Michigan even have any high country? what sort of ups and downs does it have?”
“North and south manitou island are both really good, also if you want a hike that is unique check out noordhouse dunes. Manistee River Trail is by far one of my favorite places to go.”
““Hey look---this is almost a real backpacking site today!”
“If you don't mind doubling back, there are parts of the NCT that are really cool. Areas that include Udell Hills (north or south of it) are nice.”
“we're thinking of going up "there" the end of next week, probably friday-sunday. if anyone else is interested let me or krash know.
“what are the total miles for the jordan river hike?”
“hoist lakes is pretty mediocre, i think. nordhouse is one of my favorites, but the guys want to do miles, not hang about the beach”
“weathers lookin pretty good for Manistee!”
“I need to get backup to Michigan for some hiking”
“well nows your chance Ewker!
“I wish I could”
“I hear ya
catch ya later”
“Ewker - - Let me know when you can get up here. I don't mind hosting ...”
“thanks for the offer Q. If and when I will be in touch”
