Andrew, I'm glad you took the initiative to start this ball rolling. I will make it happen one way or another. Since I am also a student, I will also be back in school by then, so from my perspective, early September would be the best.
I would be excited to hike up and down the North Shore of Lake Superior. If we camp, it would also be nice to go down to the water at sunrise and sunset for some long exposures.
I'm very excited about a weekend trip!
