    North Manitou Island-Sept. 16, 17, & 18

    Ok, let's try this again. North Manitou Island. Take the ferry over Friday morning, then from there the discussion begins.

    The issue tends to be a back-up plan if we can't get ferried across. There are a few options here. In the other thread, it was mentioned to move on down to Manistee Natl Forest for the NCT or MRT. Another option is to roll on down to Sleeping Bear Dunes and head into the backcountry there. Third is Nordhouse dunes.

    Just a note, average temps for Leland, MI in Sept is 70 high and 49 low. But weather is pretty unpredictable.

    Not scare, I'm in and calling shotgun with Kevin or if Steve o goes we'll get him to drive. I like the idea of sleeping bear or nordhouse as back up.

    Sleeping Bear rec. area is closer and for those driving a long ways that makes sense as a back up.
    Pencil me in.

    Its a proven fact that 78.4% of all statstics are made up on the spot.
