Drummond Island, Michigan First weekend of October

The first weekend of October a bunch of Jkers from Chicago, Indiana, and here in Central Ohio are meeting up for a ride and camping trip on Drummond Island, Michigan. So far it looks like we have somewhere around 25-30 jeeps going... I haven't seen any of this listed on this forum yet... So... here goes.

The plan is to ride up on Friday, Camp Friday night, trail ride saturday, camp on the trail Saturday night, ride some more Sunday, those who can, camp sunday night and then return Monday morning...

So, I'm not the person organizing this but I can pass along any info that anyone needs. Post up here if you are interisted in going and I'll pass on any info that I get...

You know I'm going - but dont forget our Canadian comrades are coming too...
It's gonna be a hell of a convoy, camping trip, and wheeling adventure. I'm stoked.

As of late, I find the use of the word epic to be over used and diluted. However, this trip should be somewhere on the fringes of epic to be sure.
I absolutely cannot wait.

Looks like an awesome trip....wish I could make it. I was up there for a few days over summer. Great wheeling and scenery, but super bumpy!

GO THE EXTRA MILE, IT'S NEVER CROWDED THERE.

Hey guys who are going - make sure to go to the Michigan DNR website and get your 16$ ORV permit. Muddenjeep informed me of this the other day - you pay for it online thru their site and print it out - easier than trying to get it there.

You can also pick them up right on the island at the gas station or the tourist center. Or any Walmart or any place that sells hunting licenses along the way.

OK, now for the planning...
We should figure out what we are taking in order to not duplicate things...

Fire Wood... Can't take it... but are we going to get it there or cut up what we find... i.e. should I bring my Chainsaw?

I plan on bringing some starter logs...

Stove... do any of you have a large camping stove? I've got my backpacking one... It would take awhile if we were cooking for a couple with it. Or, do we want to cook over a fire?

Food, do we want to corridinate this or just bring what you want... If we are cooking together then we should figure this one out... It would be a pain in the ass to cook three or four different things using the same gear...

These are just off the top of my head. I'm sure there are others... Feel free to chime in...
