Could it have been Pickerel Lake, Kimball Lake. Emerald Lake, etc. in Newaygo county? Those are small lakes and you can easily go from lake to lake in a rowboat.

1984? Blasted out of my head for the most part. Making twice monthly road trips from Detroit to Miami, stopping only for fuel.
No Red Bull or 5 hour energy drink back then but somehow we never slept.

Sorry, no help on your lake search.

My family would rent a cabin on Mclaren Lake when I was a kid. It is near Hesperia. There are several lakes around it. Maybe this was the place?

I went to White Birch Lodge when I was 10. It's on Elk Lake, which does connect with other lakes. So maybe you were there, too.

You sure you were in Michigan? We stayed near Lake James just over the Michigan/Indiana border and it has a bunch of lakes connected.

In 1984 I was sucking on a boobie and pooping in a diaper

Or was that last week

I was still in my fathers ball sack in 1984. Lots of my comrades didn't make it to the egg, but in 1985 I changed the game.

Martiny Chain of Lakes? There are six lakes. Between Mt Pleasant and Big Rapids. Very small lakes you can very easily get around on. Even has an Island with like 10 camp sites.

If he was alive in 1984 that means he lived in his moms basement until he was 30ish.
