I guess I can give you a heads up. You may have seen a post or 2 I may have had about the UP Overland trips I do in the summer. Well before last year's I was emailing with Kevin Blumer of 4 Wheel Drive & Sport Utility trying to get them to send someone to do the trip. He said they didn't have the funds "You do it!"
Well my skills must have been good enough. There will be an article published in the August issue of the magazine about the trip.
The UP Overland trps are just a great way to see some parts of the UP you may have never heard or found out about. My wife and I haev been a part of all of them since they started in '07. It is a first come, first in si4gn up. It has varied over the years on where we go with some repeated a few times (which isn't a problem seeing they are camping right on one of the big lakes). They usually take place the second or third week in August lasting 3 or 4 nights rough camping. There have been people from FL, NY, PA, CA on the trip with most of us from MI, IN, IL and WI. If it sounds like something that may interest you, my best adivce is to head over to http://www.upoverland.org/
and sign up for the forums. It is a family-friendly event also where kids are more than welcome.
Here is a shot of my truck at where we camped near the tip of teh Garden Peninsula last summer. Yes, it is the same truck in May 4 Wheel & Offroad Reader's Rides.
