Folks,

It sounds like most folk would prefer trips in the Lower Peninsula so I propose 2 trips on the Manistee River Trail.

April 4-6th
April 25th-27th

Cheers,

Stephen

Hi Stephen, April 25th-27th should work well for me, unless something unexpected comes up.

Mar 21 and April 11 wkend I could do. Pictured rocks is close for me so that is easy but would consider MRT also as it is good stomping ground memories!

If you did pictured ROcks apr 25 you could stop by the casino and see 3 days grace while you're up here. Just a thought.:)
Keep me posted on what date/location is settled on.

April 25-27 MRT looks good for me, unless there's still a ton of snow. (Wouldn't think so but, at the rate it's going, I'm not sure anymore...)

I asked my wife and she said either weekend is fine. She said the 5th is our anniversary, but I should do whatever I want. I think I'll plan on the other weekend. :)

Hi Peter,

Sounds like the 25th will be the better option for you :-(

Folks,

From reading back the thread looks like everyone is happier with the 25th so I will bin the the first date unless we gets some more takers.

Anyone else interested?

Stephen (and anyone else...), I had already blocked off that weekend (the 5th) for a longer backpacking trip anyway...so I'll go back to my old plan of the Eagle Rock Loop in Arkansas.

If any of you would like to join me...you are certainly welcome!! At the moment it is just CharlieDog and myself, maybe Ken Jacobs if he's still up for it.

Hi Jen,

Sounds like a great trip :-).

I am bit tight for vacation for long trips as need to head to Scotland for a wedding soon and another later in the summer to Ireland.

All my trips for the next while will be 3-4days only, no big deal as get to go home to Europe twice :-)

Yes...I was going to leave either Wednesday after teaching or first thing Thursday morning. I'd have to use Sunday to drive back (8-10 hours for me)

Can you join me?? That'd be awesome!!!

"Can you join me??"

While unlikely, it's still too early for me to figure that out. It's an area of the country I've never backpacked in before, so it would be great to join you, just can't commit yet.
