Are you wheeling mainly in the grayling area? I might be able to make it out on Saturday (if I get the jeep back together this week)? What time are you planning on meeting/starting off on Saturday? Id be driving over from Mio.

we stayed at yogis during labor day weekend, and they said that they were open thru holloween, so u should be good to go. we also try and stay around the grayling area, so we hope u can make it up. the Super 8 is running around $55 a night after tax, and i was told they are filling up, so make the reservations soon! hope to see u guys in a few weeks, and i will continue to update everyone!

I'll probably be up there with DMJC. Don't know yet where I'll stay.

I'm curious where people plan to wheel that they believe to be legal.

I plan to camp if the weather is good.

I know some cool spots to camp where The National Guard will wake you at 10:30am with shots from a A-10 (see video). http://www.mediamax.com/charliemanson/Hosted/MPEG0021.ASF (takes about a minute to download with hi speed)

I also have a lot of the trails and hot spots on GPS.

I feel obligated to say that that's a VERY bad place to be. If any of you find yourself in the middle of an open field, that's also a very bad place to be. (firing range)

I used to work in Range Control at Camp Grayling, now I'm working in headquarters, operating the main switchboard.

Needless to say, I don't want to have to coordinate a med-evac with Range Control and Mercy Hospital, mmkay? Everything we do on post at the ranges is with live rounds, and I guaranflippingtee we've got more firepower than you.

/end PSA



Oh, and people out on the ranges makes for a miserable weekend for those that work in Range Control, because somebody has to go out and post guard on certain roads. I had to do that a couple years ago when snowmobilers didn't believe us when we said we were firing live cannon rounds on Range 12.

I was outside of the fence line (totally legal) when I shot this video. This year they have fenced off the area so it is no longer legal to be in that spot. But there are plenty of places in the area of the north range to view the artillery show. You don't need to be worried about me you should be more concerned with yourself. Thank you for your concern.

I didn't say it was illegal, just a bad place to be.
And the reason I was saying that, is that my first instinct is to protect. But, if you insist, do whatever you want.
