Hmmm I wonder who they were.....

I just pulled up to a silver unlimited almost identical to mine at the gas station in Mackinaw City. Had flat fender flares, non bumper mounted tire carrier, and sliders.

Very strange.... Anyone know who this is?

It was a pretty cool trail. I ran it a few years ago when we were up there to mark some of the trails.

I posted this up on MI Wheelers too. Does anyone know of anything like abandoned buildings like the old Johnswood Sawmill or even anything to go along with the regular stuff like Marblehead, Fossil Ledges, etc. that would be good for a magazine article? I am hoping to get up there sometime this summer for pictures to do one for 4WD & Sport Utility magazine. It will be more along the lines of the camping and scenery of the island. I will also be throwing is some history stuff too like where the old fort is.

My first article will be going in the Aug. '13 issue about the UP trip we did last summer with the UP Overland group. I have a couple other ideas for articles I have discussed with them too. Those are still under wraps.
