    I wanted to do it this summer, but other things just got in the way.

    :cookiemonster:

    From my looking on google maps there are more dunes farther north as well. We plan on coming back via Sault ste Marie and visiting with my wife's sister. We had planned to make a week out of it.

    I should have looked at the eBay ad. That flag is way too short at 6 feet. My flags are 8'6" long.

    The flags must be mounted to the front of the truck . Since most are mounted near bumper height a 6 foot flag would never reach the height requirement.

    I like the idea of the clamps. Easy remove!

    I'll probably have to move the clamps a bit to ensure the flag pole doesn't cause any false alarms with the LDA and PCS systems (PCS uses both the grille radar and windshield camera).

    A few test runs should help. I’m thinking the pole might be thin enough that it may not interfere. I’d like to hear if it causes an issue.
