    Day 1

    We will begin by riding at Silver Lake Sand Dunes, in Mears Michigan. Participants can arrive at any time on this day. However, the main group will be ending their tour of the dunes by meeting in the Dunes Parking Lot at 4:00 P.M. for a trail ride from Silver Lake to Twisted Trails ORV Park, in Copemish, MI. Once at Twisted Trails ORV Park we will set up camp for the night. There will be no riding at the Twisted Trails Park on this night.

    Day 2

    On day two we will begin the morning with guided trail rides at Twisted Trails ORV Park at 9:00 A.M. After riding all morning we will meet in the main parking lot of Twisted Trails at 3:00 P.M. We will then travel mostly scenic roads from Copemish, Michigan to the Wilderness Campground in Carp Lake, Michigan. This ride will be on marked roadways that will be primarily paved. This is intended to be a scenic easy going road trip. Most of the vehicles in this group are not intended for high speed travel so if you are riding with us plan on taking your time and enjoying the ride.

    Day 3

    Our third day we will be leaving from Wilderness State Campground at 9:00 A.M. Sharp. If anyone wants to join us for the ride over the bridge they can either meet us at the Wilderness State Campground before we leave or catch us in route. Once we cross the bridge we will stop at the rest area immediately after the Mackinaw Bridge Toll Booth, which would be a second opportunity for those participants who are unable to attend until Saturday to join us. We will then continue to the Village of Detour and ride the fairy boat across to Drummond Island. We will then ride the rest of the day at the Twisted Trails ORV Park. There will be a group dinner held on Saturday night.

    Just got back from pre-running with Pat, Tim, and new guy Corey (Wrangling Steel). Long dusty day, but we should be good.

    Total miles traveled for me today was just shy of 540 with about 16 hours in the JK. Good times.

    Oh, and 18 days away.

    I've actually gotten a fair amount of interest for this. There is just no pre-registration though so it's hard to guess how many people will show. I guess we will have to wait to find out.

    Either way, there will be at least a few of us that are going to be having a great time wheeling multiple locations over a couple days.
