OK, guys & gals, IL-LOST has set tentative plans for some late winter/early spring wheeling:

Dates: March 16-18 (alternate dates March 23-25)
Where: Manistee National Forest in Michigan

Since this trip is in March, there is a chance for a late season snow storm, hence the alternate dates. As the dates get closer, we'll keep watch on the weather and decide about a week ahead which dates we'll go.

It will be cold either way, so camping is completely up to those hearty enough to attempt it. I'll post up more details in the next couple of weeks regarding available accomodations, etc.

***UPDATE***
We'll be running the trails in the Baldwin-Whitecloud District of Manistee N.F. The closest accommodations to the trailheads are in Big Rapids, MI. I've done a quick scan of the area's chain hotels and the two least expensive for that weekend are the Quality Inn & Suites @ $59/night and the Super 8 @ $61/night. We've stayed at the Quality Inn before and the rooms were fairly comfortable. (I can't vouch for the Super 8 ). I'm not sure that any of the area campgrounds will be open this early in the season.

Here are the addresses for both hotels:

Quality Inn
1705 S. State Street, Big Rapids, MI, US, 49307
Phone: (231) 592-5150
Fax: (231) 592-5157

Super 8
845 Water Tower Road, US Highway 131 at Exit 139, Big Rapids, MI 49307 US
Phone:1-231-796-1588
Fax:1-231-796-1588
