    Default Copper Harbor - Aug 2-6, 2012

    Ok Gents... setting up this big event/ride.

    This is a camping trip.

    Here's the map plan for going there and back.

    We will take 2 days to ride up taking the west side of the mit. I think we will stop in Petosky or so for the night. Originally thinking St. Ignace for first night but I don't want to push guys... we can see how it goes. Or if somebody has more input here, we can work that out before hand or while on the road. I've done camping trips before and it's not a big deal to roll in without a resv.

    So we leave Thursday Aug 2nd... get up there Friday evening...

    Caveman wants to stay at McLain State Park. Good or bad??? My only concern is that it's a state park so it has Alcohol Restrictions. Also we definitely want showers and beach access preferred.

    Then Sat & Sun we will go to Porcupine Mts, Lake in the clouds, and maybe run over to Wisconsin. This is also open for input... Short jaunts and back to camp.

    We'll head south Monday the 6th and just hammer down the highway to get home. This is also shown in the map link above. It's a 10hour/600 mile hammer home (for me).

    Some other logistics...

    I was going to bring some MRE's for camp fire eating. These aren't cheap crappy MREs but some nice ones. I've done camp fire cooking but it's a bunch of work if you bring the food with you... ice & ice & more ice then all the pans, etc...

    I think Caveman will bring his trailer for once... this might help anybody that can't handle bringing their own gear, being we will need to be bringing tents, sleeping bags, etc... I know I can handle all my own gear but I'm sure others can't say the same.

    Who's in?

    Looks like a nice trip.
    No drinks at camp? I don't know about that though.

    I know... that's why I said I didn't like that place. I want to be back to camp well before dark... so we can eat and do some mild drinking... hanging out, etc...

    Ooooh, I'll have to check the holiday schedules at work. Hopefully that's not the same time frame my boss is taking off to visit his relatives.
