    Manistee River

    Planning a trip up to the Manistee River (MI) next week, and I am kooing for a canoe livery that I can park my vehicle and haul me and my canoe to the put in spot for a reasonable charge. Lokking to put in at either the CCC or M72 bridge (or above) and then a three day trip (15 - 20 hrs. on the river). Any ideas or reccomendations?
    I'm so out of shape ......I passed gas yesterday and pulled a muscle!

    Manistee River

    Well, it looks like Chippewa is the strong front runner. Even had that recommended by Gargoyle. I saw their web page last night, and they were my choice, but wanted some others input before I called them.

    Red, sorry to hear about your hammock mis-adventures awhile back. I know it was said before, but if you need any help let me know. Maybe we can get the big guy (Gargoyle) out and do a river trip sometime yet this year. Right now, I just need me some time in the woods.

    Thanks guys.
