Hell with it, I'm going! Worst case scenario I hang by the beach most of the time and see how they like a constant 20mph wind. And I'll try and make the June 7 hang by the way, via Kayak!!!
Last night I did a solo overnight at Manistee river trail. Skeeters and freaking ticks! That and something huge doing a cannonball into the river at 3:30 made for a short night. I did a short hike and had to use the skin so soft off with DEET two times. The skeeters stayed away after the second dousing, but I found a tick inside of my ultra-thin and super tight smart wool ankle high sock. I flicked him off before I realized what it was. At the higher points where the wind was blowing good the bugs were not an annoyance.
Do to a 5k run I have coming come on june 9th i will not be heading up to nord house I am really pissed because i really want to go to this event I would be doing a lot of driving just for an over night and to me its not worth it..
U guy's have fun and ill see y'all on the next one.
I retract my previous statement about Saugatuck Dunes being so-so... I went for a hike yesterday and it was insane. The mosquitoes were as thick as fog... but only back in the woods. It was too hot on the sand for them to be out on the beach. So I hiked the shoreline...
hmmm....5 days on North Manitou, should I take the head net?
Place and time to meet?
