Default Mounds February 16th

Hey,
Masterbeatty's birthday is the 17th and we were thinking about going to the Mounds on the 16th. Anyone up for a Mounds trip? Probably going to be going early Saturday and spending the day there or until something breaks. I'll bring cupcakes!!!:)

Are you guys just going up for the day or what is near by for sleeping arrangements? Camp grounds or hotels?

There are a few hotels near by if we aren't all in the mood to drive 4 hours round trip. Maybe go up there Saturday morning- wheel all day and then crash up there Saturday night. Just a thought. I'll talk to Alex and see what he thinks about going there instead.

Oh, no. The mounds is a hop skip and a jump away- I think 30 minutes top from Fenton. I was talking about R&V campgrounds/hotels Is the drive fairly easy? We've never been there.

Do you remember the name of the one you've been too! If not, no big deal. But good to know!

Lone pine motel in Clare, 10 min away from R&V, I believe it was $65/night.

Not exactly classy, but clean, warm, and dry!

We are torn between the two. If we decide to go to the Mounds, would you and Ron want to go?
