Sjixxxy, we may have to take you up on that idea. Do you know when you'll have the 4 acres? Would it be in time for the 7th? I've had no luck calling Big Blaze campground at all this week. Being a little ways up the shore would be nice though if for the only reason of being about a third to half way up, and most of the interesting places are close by. Although, the Congdon mansion might produce some interesting photos??? Closer to Duluth might be doable.
I'll try calling Big Blaze again next week, and some state parks around that area for reservations.
