    Yep, I'm thinking about Thursday also. I have a scheduling conflict, and will have to leave Saturday. Sadly, I'll miss all the great chili, and I love chili!

    No silly.
    Boot, take 96w to M6 W, take the first exit off M6, which is M37/East Beltline, go South on M37 and past Middleville youl'll see Yankee Springs rd. Follow Yankee Springs rd to the campground.

    Deep Lake Campground

    Just an FYI... Deep lake is about 2-3 miles East of the main Yankee Springs Recreation Area... Off S Yankee Springs Road South of 179/Chief Noonday Rd...

    Just saying...

    Thanks Randy, it's kinda a crapshoot figuring out best routing when you're not familiar with the area. I was looking at getting off 96 at 66 south to 43 to 179. Is there something I should know about it. I prefer rural driving as opposed to city and I expect I should be hitting GR right around rush hour!

    Cool Directions?

    I just plug the destination into the GPS and follow it blindly. It took me off the freeway once into a sketchy neighborhood in Buffalo but I eventually got where I needed to go.

    I use a Garmin 60Csx for geocaching with the annoying beeps turned off!!

    In car GPS's drive me nuts - the boss has one and I'd like to beat it to death every time I'm in his car!!

    Maybe it's just that I don't like to be told where to go!!...

    I can't resist the temptation to grab a few while I'm in the area!
    I've never geocached, but I'd be interested in giving it a try. There's got to be more to it than what I imagine: punch coordinates into GPS and go where it tells you. Oh wait, that's how I find PEOPLE! lol. Yeah, I'll give it a try.

    So, Thursday, general campground. Is that still on Deep Lake? Or elsewhere in Yankee Springs? I'm targeting sometime around late afternoon, depending how work goes.
