I think you've hit on something that would be pretty cool to do as an organized group. How about a section hike of the NCT through Michigan, starting at the border and going north? Link to trail info: http://northcountrytrail.org/trail/states/michigan/
. Lowell, Michigan is the national headquarters too. Think about how it would solve the whole issue of picking a place for a group hang...just look at the map and see where it left off last time. I've done a bunch of sections of it (NCT-MRT, Pictured Rocks, Porkies), but it would be a great accomplishment to do it all within our great state of Michigan and advance the Hammock as the ultimate in no-impact camping.
