No clue if it's legal or accessable now (that was damn near fourty years ago) but the last time I was up in the neighborhood there looked like a lot of possibilities for exploration.

If you don't find anything to ride you can always go to the nudist colony.
thanks for the info, shelby is a good 3 hr ride down 65 from me.... lake Michigan is about 6 mi from my house....LOL

Lake O' the Woods?!?!? That place is a mile away from my parents home, they don't like it when you rally around on their gravel roads....so I hear.

Wouldn't taking the ferry "across" Lake Michigan from Indiana put you in WI or IL??? Not Michigan?

Sorry I knit pick. I used to work on the Lake Michigan car ferry in high school.
