Michigan - South or North Manitou Island?
Anyone been to both islands? I only have one night. Trying to decide if it's worth going and which island would be best. I'm not fussed about being seeing other people. Seeing old building...

Re: Trail runner with approach shoe grip?

Re: Your wants for a backpack trip smartphone app
