Darrel and I had a good time on our camp trip up north. Here is an account of the trek:
Friday evening we spent packing and getting ready.
Saturday morning we work up early (around 7:00ish (well, for Darrel this is sleeping in, but for me it was early )). We made a quick stop at Tim Horton?s, (one of the greatest ‘fast food’ places on Earth). A few more hours and we had pass Cadillac, MI and entered into ‘the middle of no where’. After driving thru the middle of nowhere, we reached our campsite, which was in the middle of the middle of nowhere. We setup camp:
Little did we know, an army of mosquitos had evaded the camp before we arrived. There were lots, and lots, and it was only 1:00 PM. We managed to defend ourselves with the mosquito dreaded, Deep Woods Off.
After lunch, we hit the trails. The dirt bikes and quads were giving us funny looks. Apparently, not many Jeeps head down the trails.

Me by the Jeep on the trail:
We road about 30 miles on the trail and stopped for dinner. On the way back we stopped and got some firewood. When we got back to the campsite one of the shock mounts on the Jeep was broken. Needles to say, that was the end of the trail riding.
The rest of the evening was spent around the campfire.
Sunday morning we packed up camp and headed back home.
Even though the trip was cut short by Jeep problems, we had a good time. We are going to try to go up north one more time before the end of summer.
