Hi there ..
Since I didn't get the chance to go on the Fall Michigan hang last weekend I ended up going up there solo. Couldn't resist with all the great videos and trip reports that everyone posted. I just had to go ... :D:D:D.
Temps got down to 30* and slept well with my Crowsnest and Burrow. Had a cold spot on my butt in the middle of the night when I woke up to the howls of coyote's, but after some adjusting I fell right back to sleep. Next time I'll bring something to throw under me for added insulation.
My Gossamer gear pad at my feet worked out perfectly keeping my foot box warm. It did have frost on the underside when I packed it up. Pitched my Warbonnet Bigmamajamba right down to the ground and my Blackbird was awesome again. I went to sleep at 10pm and didn't wake until 9am. Great night's sleep in the outdoors!
Hope ya all enjoy, can't wait to get out again ....
That was really nice. Sure would like to get up there before the end of the year.
Thanx for sharing.
thx for sharing looks like a great outing and set to my fav song too
I really enjoyed the group hang and doing the loop early this year with friends was one of my best trips. I've been up to that area 7 times this summer. One of these days I'm going to hike that loop solo. I've never gone solo overnight before. I feel confident now in knowing the area well enough that I'm hoping for a winter trip around the loop. It may be required to go solo, all my normal hike partners won't do cold weather.
Thanks for the video! It really captured what that area is like.
Thanks for the pictures. It looks like you had a nice trio and fine weather for it.
What a great video. It really had feeling to it.
Thanks for sharing.
Ditto's on the sharing. Hoping to go on my first real hang soon, this makes me want to do it that much sooner. Thanks for taking the time to produce the video.
Thanks for the inspiration to do a movie of my own.
Nice trip report
I love a Solo Stomp!:laugh:
Ever see Manatees in the Manistee????
Really cool "Trip Report". Beautiful countryside this time of year. I like the tunes you picked too for the video, enjoyed that.
Makes me want to get my newly acquired setup dialed in to go farther north and experience the cooler hiking & camping weather.
