This is just a feeler. I have no concrete plans, but wanna stick this out there.
I'd like to do a night or two in the the Trap Hills before the snow hits, and if anyone is interested, we could work out shuttling or a simple out and back.
Ideally, it would be when I have a long weekend, but I don't yet know when that would be. So anyone interested, keep this in the back of your mind, and I'll update this if i can nail down a weekend.Aug 22, 2013 at 1:36 pm #2017676
I just googled it and its an 8 hour drive for me, bah humbugAug 22, 2013 at 2:36 pm #2017704
You could hire a private helicopter to drop you off.Aug 22, 2013 at 4:19 pm #2017741
Or hire a Limo and have party in the back with a load of backpacking hotties.Aug 22, 2013 at 4:48 pm #2017749
NOW you're thinking!Aug 22, 2013 at 5:14 pm #2017763

2300 mile drive for me Travis. But I would go right through Bozeman. I could pick up Ryan, willing or not.Aug 22, 2013 at 6:33 pm #2017778
Ken, if you picked Ryan and drove him here, I'd pay for your gas. Scouts honor.Aug 22, 2013 at 6:52 pm #2017783
maybe he could bring some beer with him :-)Aug 23, 2013 at 3:32 pm #2018040

The trap hills are gorgeous. I think they might be the hidden crown jewel of Michigan. Definitely a must see- I'm dying to get back there- bonus points for doing it in the last week of september when the leaves should be perfect. Keep me posted.

Damn — 5.5 hours from the Mighty Mack. I wish we were still living on the other side of the lake.Aug 25, 2013 at 2:32 pm #2018512
We could two leave cars at carpool somewhere south of the bridge and proceed on in one and split the drive.
What do you both think?Aug 26, 2013 at 3:32 pm #2018794
That would take the sting out of it.Aug 26, 2013 at 3:35 pm #2018795
It sure would.Aug 26, 2013 at 4:52 pm #2018812
Travis — do you have a date in mind? It would be great to hit while there were some leaves left on the trees.Aug 26, 2013 at 7:35 pm #2018857
Ok, looking at my schedule, the only weekend I can get off for a long one is September 6-8. I know it's short notice, but its the last time I'll be free for an extended weekend before the snow falls.
I'd be able to meet at the trailhead early Friday morning for a full day of hiking, and would have to be at my car by noon on Sunday.
I'm down with whatever if other people can do that date.Aug 27, 2013 at 5:14 am #2018944
Sorry Trav, no can do as thats my Wedding Anniversay weekend.Aug 27, 2013 at 5:31 am #2018946
Ah, bummer; but happy anniversary! We'll do a winter/very late fall tripAug 27, 2013 at 6:03 am #2018949
Lets definiltey meet up later in the year.Aug 28, 2013 at 6:48 am #2019375
Travis. I cannot make that date due to a previously scheduled event.
Thank you for the invite.Aug 28, 2013 at 7:16 am #2019385
If the dates change let me know.Aug 28, 2013 at 7:50 am #2019399
Sorry guys, I know it was late notice. But if you ever plan a trip, I'd be glad to try and make myself available. I'll for sure be doing a few winter trips in the UP.Aug 28, 2013 at 8:01 am #2019405
I will be planning two trips between here and January.Aug 28, 2013 at 8:12 am #2019409
