Naw, don't bring a bike, just plenty of DEET and maybe some long johns

What a great place to grow up. My childhood was back and forth between the west coast and the north woods, but during my high school years I lived in Presque Isle, went to Lakeland High.

I did a quick 260 mile jaunt on Saturday....I rode south from Marquette and worked my way all the way down to the tip of the Stonington Peninsula.
It was weird...started out with snow banks as high as my shoulders, and watched the snow levels drop the further south I went...soon, there were only occasional patches of snow.
I took my camera and two sets of batteries...both of which were dead! No pictures.
Pretty country over there. I've driven all over the U.P., and we have friends in Marquette, but I've never ridden a bike east of Gwinn. Have to check out the trails & back roads over that way soon.
