    I just checked the weather.

    Saturday:
    High of 47 low of 35.
    40% chance of percipitation
    Mix of rain and snow showers.

    Sunday
    High of 55 low of 35
    0% chance of percipitation
    Partly Cloudy.

    Might be a good idea to bring along some rain gear or at least a couple changes of clothes, i'm sure no one wants to have to be wet all day long. Does anyone have a pop up tent?? It would be nice for protection from the weather.

    .. I do. I will also grab a large tarp, some straps/bungees etc. However a 40% chance concerns me less.

    How many others are planning to make it up.

    We are going to Mackinac Island for our anniversary Thrs.-Sat. Are you going to be doing it Sunday? We planned on hitting Camp Grayling that day.

    I would doubt it. But you never know.

    I had to run north for some other business so hit up the new section of trail. You guys did a good job. Nice and tight. My JK actually smacked a couple trees with the tires!

    It appears the DNR went through it with a grader or something though. Looks like there is even a couple trees at the beginning of the trail (north end) that were pushed over. I'm not sure what's the deal with that, but otherwise nice trail.

    Good job guys!

    ....... We had a Mini-Loader in there with a 6 foot bucket. We scraped the trail to make it a little more obvious and to remove roots, stumps, etc.
