Have a place right across from the St. Helen area.

Would leave from Flint.

Let me know if you plan to come out Flip. I can get you hooked up with people driving up from the east side if you want to ride up together. I grew up in Fenton but live in GR now.

Current Count = 17 Vehicles Confirmed & another 18 "MAYBES"

This is going to be a great event.

We should have at least 5 or 6 canoes going out Sunday.

Do you have a route planned? Or is it decide on the fly ? Just curious.

I've got it roughly planned out. I'm going to do a pre run when the snow breaks to get it finalized.

Thanks for the info and warm welcome. Mark me in as a maybe, I will probably have to replace my KMs before then

You got it. How well do you know the area? I know the North really well which we will hit in the AM but I don't know the area SE of grayling that well. I wanted to hit some if those big hills in the afternoon.

Pretty well, a lot of that area is going to be dependant on what the base has going on. I don't know who to contact to find out what ranges are open.

I have sent a couple emails but no response yet. Hopefully I can find the answer to that question. There is plenty of area to the north to drive around on if some of the SW area ends up being closed. I just wanted to go down there because I know there is some big scramble areas there.

They also close ranges to the north in the summer. Fortunately there's enough areas to go that we won't be without spots to go wheel. My neighbor there works on post I'll ask him if he knows who to contact.

Cool, sounds good. I will let you know when we head up for the pre run. Basically waiting for the snow to go so we can run it without taking days.
