    Dimner,
    You made the right decision. It's always important to have a bail out plan set up. It was good to meet you and welcome to the hammock madness.

    Great report so far. I'll try to add my take tomorrow after I'm rested up from my Detroit run.

    Looks like I'll be pulling out early Sunday for a quick turn around and drive to Detroit... Fun.

    That'll be me tonight, along with questioning my sanity as I watch, yet again, the temps plunge.

    My pack mule aka my son has decided to opt out of this trip, so I'll be coming in solo...might have to reconsider how much extra I bring in without his help pulling the sled.

    This little snow event going on this morning has me psyched to camp. Guess I'll start getting my gear ready after work. Thinking I'll try a fixed ridgeline out on this trip.

    Mr.LCV, those pics kind of scare me. I guess I can't snivel about goose egg lows for this upcoming weekend. I'm planning to stay warm during the daylight hours by processing firewood. Dave, I'll...

    Easy to find, just on the hill above cabin...thinking I'll be selecting a hang spot somewhere up the hill--- cold air settles in the low areas, plus added dampness of river.

    I know I can safely get that low, but won't mind if the actual low stays north of that number. Banking that the ground dwellers in the group don't become offended if the cabin becomes a warming...

    Yes! A short romp to the other cabin... I'm curious to see if DNR has done anything with it; whether repair or tear down.

    No fees. Technically need to fill out a permit and post. There may be forms at the cabin, but I doubt it.

    Nice report and pics. I'm glad I looked this one over as my plans for hauling firewood next weekend have just become simpler --using a sled to haul firewood! Why didn't this occur to me before?

    An interesting thread to be sure. For me it boils down to situational awareness: I rarely stay in campgrounds anymore and if I do, it's with a group, so I know my neighbors. Off the beaten path, my...

    More or less... A spot in front of cabin opening midway between cabin and river. And as I remember from last October, a few old logs positioned around it. No fire ring tho.

    Haven't been by the site lately so I'm not sure what the snow level is up to, but from where I live (38 miles NW), we have reached levels where snow shoes will be helpful.

    So like many on here, I stumbled onto this site after I bought a hammock (ENO) and learned enough to regret my initial purchase. Don't get me wrong, my trusty Double Nest is 100x better than sleeping...

    I love those few times in wilderness where I find silence and winter seems like the best shot at achieving it; Isle Royale came close a few times but you still here Jets flying by high over head.

    Some people like DIY...I've discovered I'm not one of them. I'll spend the extra money on a quality made product from one of our cottage vendors on here to save both time and frustration.

    Very tempting, but I should probably save my vacation days and money for my backpacking trip. And green timbers.
