Default Grand Haven area non-maintained county roads?

Hey everyone.

Just received orders to Grand Haven for my twilight tour in the Coast Guard. I was born and raised in T.C. and am looking forward to getting back to Michigan!

Just wondering what Ottawa County has in the way of unimproved / non-maintained county roads? I'm not a hardcore crawler / offroader, and I do enjoy exploring the country roads.

Anyone have any links or anything that list 'em? I'll get an Atlas when we get there. But until then...???

Thanks much!
Spicy

Nothing in Grand Haven. A few nice trails within an hour drive. A few ORV parks within 3 hours or so. Silver Lake is less than an hour away.

Hey Spicy,
Found this site hey? I will tell Firechaser to message you on the UPO site. He lives over by GR and knows some areas not that far off from where you will be.

a buddy/BM2 just sold his 85 CJ7 we did ALOT to that thing, but out here there are a TON of CJs rolling around just depends on how much work you want to put into it. we searched for about 4 months before we found a decent priced and decent body CJ.

Ok, I'm going to try and hijack this. My son is looking to go full time in the CG. Anybody want to give the kid the real deal? He is talking to the recruiter now (email back and forth with a face to face coming up).
He is thinking ME... Any thoughts? Send me a PM if you want to talk off the board.

I shot you a PM. I've been in 20 years now, and will be retiring after my Grand Haven tour.

Ive only got 5.5 years in, and was ALL ABOUT *ME* when it stood up and i found out aviation wasnt going to work out for me. but if MSTC cant get you the anwsers you want, which im PRETTY SURE he can i can tap into a few resources i have or even get you others opinions, just throwing it out there. im sure the chief will be able to hook you up, i joined straight out of High School and LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE it. it comes down to the CG is what you make of it. if your a shitbag youll hate it, if your squared away and have dignity in your work youll do a pretty damn good job and love your choice. well your son :)
