    Unfortunately, I must bow out of this adventure. I managed to re-sprain my ankle and can barely walk on level ground. Have a great time and I look forward to the trip report!

    I stopped by the parking lot and there is currently about four inches of snow on the unplowed lot. Based on the current forecast for Curran, Michigan, I don't think there will be more than an...

    It is possible we might still need snow shoes too if we get more snow then predicted . Maybe Vulture can check it out Wed .[/QUOTE]

    I'll let you know for sure, but based on what I'm seeing and...

    1) Underground Quilts are awesome and the owner is a straight up great guy. I highly recommend them. 2) I drive by Hoist Lakes every day. There is currently snow covering all the ground, but only 3...

    There is no snow up here. A dusting of it in the woods in places. Ice? Not enough to cool your drink. It's been nonstop overcast and averaging upper 30s. So right now it's not very Wintery up...

    I drive by Hoist Lakes every day for work now. Should be no problem giving site reports.

    I might also bring chili for Saturday, since I usually can't make it until very late Friday. Good way to stay warm.

    I noticed that there is no cel phone service (for Verizon at least) from the West entrance, but is likely from the East. So if you get lost, you're on your own.

    I stopped by the West entrance today. Winter gave us a little tease today.

    Loving the trip reports and videos!! Looks like a blast! I enjoyed my weekend catching up with my kids. I look forward to hanging and meeting you all when I can.

    I don't think I can get a direct look at the West Hoist Lakes lot in the next couple days. I can tell you there isn't all that much snow, really. It's cold and powdery now, but I'm seeing that this...

    I hear water tastes better and it's easier if you add snow to a little liquid water as you melt it. I wouldn't know, though.

    I stopped by the East parking lot to Hoist Lakes today. It was well plowed. There is just over a foot of dry snow on the ground, with evidence/paths of hikers leading in, but no pulks. It's very...

    As i live up there, I'd expect at least knee, more likely thigh high snow of varying powder/crusty layers. I'll give an eyewitness report within a week prior to this trip.

    I'll try to drive the West lot road then and provide a report.

    I live in Alpena and drive by Hoist Lakes daily on my way to work. Never dealt with serious Winter camping yet, but this outing is on my radar also.

    I don't remember who you are, but I'd encourage you to give at least part of this loop (Manistee River Trail is much easier) a try unless you are truly out of shape.

    Jealous as I love this loop! But I'll have to opt to continue my more leisurely outdoor adventures elsewhere. I wouldn't arrive to hike until very late Friday night. Have a blast!!
