    Yes, a great trip even though a bit cold on Mon......
    The nite adventure bushwacking was a memorable point for me. Neat too see the Porkies under all that Snow and now know i need nite-vision googles.
    The haunted faucet and ghost of Gary also lingered till Tues. The mystery fire by Gov.pk trail Mon. was cool.

    A great outing. The in-depth fireplace conversations and mind stimulating games in the evenings, opened up a whole new world of intellectual pursuits for me. Loved our skiing and snow shoeing excursions but the highlight of the trip for me was our Monday night, seven plus miles after dark, off trail snowshoeing. They didn't groom or mark the trails so we made our own. We really got into some wild areas where we had to constantly detour around snow covered brush and trees that were pulled over because of the weight. We were on at least 3 foot of snow and in many areas my pole never touched bottom. My only criticism of this trip was that it was short; I would've liked to stay longer. It's too bad everyone had to go back so soon but it was good to get home to temperatures above zero. Some pictures to follow soon.

    Hoping to run into you guys on the trails somewhere! Wanted to share that for $5 you can get a one way ski lift and ride the ski lift to the top and then get on the trails from there. Have a great time!

    I will settle up with the park office on the balance for the lodge tomorrow morning over the phone so whoever is up there at 3:00 can go to the office and get the combination for the key. I'm anticipating on being up there around 5:00.

    Hey guys sorry didnt post earlier as it appeared that i might have to drop out of the trip but finally things worked out.

    Anna if you want we can drive together from Milwaukee and you can leave your car at my place if somebody can you drop you back to Milwaukee on the way back.

    Melanie you can ride with me on the way back on Sunday to Milwaukee if you like.

    Do let me know what you guys feel.

    I can accomodate 4 people in my car so do let me know if anyone else is still without a ride.

    January 22, 2014

  • Dennis W

    Anna we will get you back to the Milwaukee area even if we have to lash Jason to the car top. If interested contact me to establish where.

    • Anna

      Thanks Dennis. I'll just drive, so no worries :)

      January 21, 2014

  • Mary

    I received confirmation from the park that check in is at 3:00 p.m. There is no early check in.

    January 21, 2014

  • Mary

    Here is the link regarding information for the lodge: http://michigan.gov/dnr/0,1607,7-153-10365_24196-133961--,00.html. I'm trying to find out when the check in time is. I'm assuming 3 or 4:00 but I'll post it when I hear back from the park office. Also, anyone staying Friday and Saturday nights please bring a sleeping bag. The lodge has bedding, however, we have different people staying Sunday and Monday nights. Thanks!

    January 20, 2014

    • Mary

      So for those staying all four nights or coming up for Sunday and Monday nights you would not have to bring a sleeping bag. You would each have your own bunk.

      January 20, 2014

  • Jason P.

    It looks like I'm carpooling with Dennis and Tim and taking Dennis' wheels since he says he's bringing everything but the kitchen sink. :-) Anna, I'm not sure if we'll have room for you on the return trip but it's definitely a possibility after all the food and beverage is gone!

    January 18, 2014

  • Tim S.

    I'm on the wait list and want too go on trip . Put me on the go list. Thanks, Tim.
    Skiing in the winter up there is fantastic.

      January 17, 2014

    • Tim S.

      January 17, 2014

  • Mike

    I am terribly sorry and also very heartbroken to let you guys know that I am no longer going to be able to make this trip. My childcare arrangement fell thru, so I will have to see you guys on the next one.

    January 16, 2014

    • Jason P.

      Sorry to hear you can't make it Mike. We'll definitely miss ya!

      January 16, 2014

    • Mary

      Mike, someone took your spot so I'll issue you a refund as soon as we switch over the finances from Ken to myself.

      January 16, 2014

    I'd like to carpool as this is a 6hrs trip for me from Milwaukee. I can meet you in Appleton. Thank you!

      Melanie: When are you planning to come back?

      January 16, 2014

    • Melanie

      I am leaving early Friday and plan on coming back Sunday.

      January 16, 2014

  • Jason P.

    I'm coming from Oshkosh. I can drive up and take two and gear with me or I can jump in with someone else. I'm able to leave anytime on Friday. I will be staying until Tuesday though so I won't be able to take anyone home sooner. Let me know!

    January 16, 2014

    • Melanie

      Might wanna message Dennis and Anna. They are both staying until Tuesday.

      January 16, 2014

  • Melanie

    Anyone interested in heading there Thursday night and camping? That will give us all day Friday to hike, or snowshoe around.

    January 13, 2014

  • Zak

    Would love a ride from Milwaukee. I will be arriving there via bus from chicago

    November 20, 2013

    • Melanie

      There will be some people leaving from Chicago as well. The comments below are about that.

      November 21, 2013

    • Gary

      Zak is on the waiting list, there is no opening as of now.

      November 21, 2013

  • Dennis W

    I'm kinda a Milwaukee. guy too and would like to get in a car pool. There might be a little extra winter gear like snowshoes, skis, sauna, lounge chairs, booze, TV, etc.; so we might need a little extra room to carry it. I have a medium size SUV that could carry a total of three with gear but am willing to work out any arrangement. I'm north of Milwaukee in the Mequon/Germantown area.

    November 12, 2013

    • Melanie

      We'll figure out something! I doubt we'll all fit in one Suv. So we'll split off the party between your car and Anna's. How does that sounds?

      November 12, 2013

  • Nikki

    Too CRAZY! I am doing a yurt to yurt snowshoe that same weekend up there! Maybe I will stop by for some spiked hot cocoa! Have a GREAT time!
