Join MAC on a weekend camping/activity trip:

Please answer the 3 questions of your activitiy interest.  You can reply to one, two or all 3.

1) Horse farm volunteering, 2) Camping at Algonac State Park,  and 3) Harsons Island Bike Ride

I'm planning a multi-things-to-do weekend getaway around Algonac State Park -- about 90 minutes from Ferndale area. If you are a novice, this is a great, and perhaps rare MAC opportunity to camp 10 feet from your car.  Also, there will be at least one large, family tent for those who lack equipment. If you need any gear, including sleeping bags, just leave a post, and I bet someone can help you!

Three activities are planned: 

-- 3 pm.  Saturday May 3.  We will start the day out at 3 pm at Volunteering at a Horse Rescue and Rehab farm.  Others groups have really liked this, and can't wait to get back.  BRING BOOTS, IT IS REALLY, REALLY MUDDY.  IT COULD BE A TOTAL MUDFEST.  PLEASE SEE http://www.meetup.com/MI-adventurers/events/179725932/?action=edit FOR THE LATEST DETAILS AND MAPS, AND DEFINITELY CHECK BACK AT THAT SITE THE DAY OF THE EVENT FOR UPDATES!  IT COULD GET CANCELLED FOR INCLEMENT WEATHER, ETC.  

More info about the farm:

-- Camping at beautiful Algonac State Park, at the Riverfront Campground. Big freighters from all over the world go by -- you can look up their ship numbers to see from where they hail.  We will arrive after volunteering at the horse farm.

We will be camping in LOTS 125, 126, 138, 140, 142, etc....  Chosen to be close enough to the restrooms, and a water spiket, without cutting through other people's campsites.  (I have lot 125 to cut to the bathroom.  If someone gets 140 or 142, we'll have a water spiket, too.)

Each site holds 6 people and two tents.

Bring your own food, and utensils, but like on other campouts, people may be sharing food.  

-- Bike riding on Harsens Island at 10:45 Sunday morning.  Please RSVP for that, and get further instructions and maps, separately here:

ON YOUR OWN:

-- Hiking and biking trails, some are along the river. I am not organizing these activities, but it is available. Some trails connect to this state park, others you might have to drive to.  http://www.eyeonmichigan.com/trails/bridgetobay/

This event is cross-posted on MAC (Michigan Adventurers Club) Meetup site.

See you there!  -- Lee
