    Thumbs up

    Just got a chance to watch your video. WOW ... nicely done. Excellent photos and nicely edited video! BEAUTIFUL place and chops to you for leaving the place better than you found it!

    Thanks for the bit of ed'u'm'cation on the little fish kill ... I'd never heard of such.

    THANKS for sharing the adventure!

    Thanks for the vid Red.
    I've been on these beaches alot, and the fish die-off is really sporadic. Don't let the fish thing scare folks of coming to the beaches. They are beautiful. One of the best.

    Thanks for sharing!
    Thanks, most of our meals are pretty simple too.... lots of Ramen, but its nice to make something a little fancier every once and a while. I'm a better cook on the trail, than I am at home

    Thanx Shane, we have to take the good with the bad up here, but I like having 4 seasons. Growing up here ya just get used to it.

    Thanx, the Great Lakes have a lot to offer, I think they're undervalued as a destination, but definitely worth checking out.

    Thank you Hawk-eye, I'm always working on my editing skillz. The fish thing was interesting to me too, bit of a drag to experience, but I learned something from it. Glad you enjoyed the video, thanx for watching.
    Good luck,

    Yeah, I hope the fish thing doesn't stop anyone from putting Nordhouse Dunes on their list. Thats the first time I've ever seen it, and I'm sure they'll be gone in no time. In fact I anyone gets one of these fish stuck in their water filter I will personally buy them a new filter element.
    Good luck,

    Great time Red, really great time. We will have to go there together sometime. I love the big lake on our western coast.
    Revolution is about the need to re-evolve political, economic and social justice and power back into the hands of the people, preferably through legislation and policies that make human sense. That's what revolution is about. Revolution is not about shootouts.

    Thanks mbiraman, last year only my wife had one of those chairs and I could hardly wait for her to get up every time we went camping. Now we each have one and we both love 'em.

    Thank you Canoebie, We'll definitely put Nordhouse on our to-do list, that'd be a great little trip. That might be a good place to try some winter camping??

    Great video and pics. I was supposed to hang there a few weeks ago with my son, brother-in-law and two nephews but the threat of thunderstorms kept us away. It was nice to watch your video and wonder what if.....

    Maybe next summer when I go back to visit family again.
