    I've been to pictured rocks and just love it up there. I don't tend to be much for touristy "boat rides" but it's worth taking the boat tour out along the shore, especially near sunset. Sand point is great. Also chapel rock and beach, and mosquito beach are interesting. Grand sable dunes is worth checking out as well. I might go through there as well.

    Is this area full of those little black biting flies/nats?

    Late June is usually still bug season in the UP (depends on how much warm weather there is in June). So you will probably still encounter them in well shaded areas. The mosquito is the 'state bird' up there, how much you see of them depends on how much rain. Hot, dry weather usually suppresses all that but brings more of the stable flies. They look like house flies except they tend to bite - mostly exposed skin at the lower extremities so shorts are not recommended. If the weather is cool, long sleeves, a hat and good bug spray usually keep you fairly comfortable.

    It is not too bad around us as far as the black flies. You do run into them on the beach on calm nights, but they're nothing a good bug repellant won't cure. Fly season is winding down in the latter part of June. Up in the UP, particularly on Superior can get pretty bad up into July. Hope this helps.

    I'm planning on being up there. It is a fair drive for me for a long weekend, but I'm sure it will be worth it. Is there anything I need to plan for? I can either camp (pop up or tent) or hotel it.

    Sounds great -- Mark

    Hi Mark, I'll be sending out notice of the gathering in the next couple of weeks. It pretty much lays out lodging options, etc. Camping is available on my property, but keep in mind that facilities are rustic. More to come.

    Hi Art,

    It would be great to have you! The nearest airport is very close in Pellston, Michigan... you can get a car there or we can pick you up.

    PLN for the airport code.

    Definitely not from CT! I'd be flying in. Hmmm...got to find a rental car when I get there though. Plus I'd only come for the weekend - Friday to Sunday, maybe Thursday - still planning.
