    The where

    Any chance of doing something closer to SE Michigan? The 250+ mile drive for some of us is challenging.

    That would be nice. I'm not sure what's in the area but it's sure close to me! All the good stuff seems to be up north. I'm heading to either Nordhouse Dunes or the NCT/MRT loop this weekend for some winter hanging!

    Just thought I would throw this out to everyone. Campsite 041c is an island campsite in Cooke Pond of the Au Sable River. It is located about 200 yards north of Lumberman's Monument. I've camped on this island before, it is somewhat remote and still easily accessible.

    One of many options for access includes renting canoes from one of the many local liveries. I believe there is weekend parking available at the Monument. We could potentially shuttle people w/equipment between Lumberman's Monument and the Island. Plenty of things to do, canoeing, hiking, fishing, just hanging out on the island. Plenty of firewood can be found on the island, but we could also bring a few pieces ourself.

    Lumberman's Monument is located about 1/2 hour west of Oscoda. Distance from the Metro Detroit area is roughly 175 miles give or take. Just an idea.

    I've attached a PDF that is a map for the Au Sable River High Banks Trail System. This should give a reference point to where things are located. Hopefully everyone should be able to see this.

    Hammock forum float trip? Do I remember right that a local member of the forums is a guide on the Manistee River? Just a thought.
