    Time to beat the TN heat.

    Hopefully WI and MI will be cooler than east TN.
    The long range forecast is looking good for the UP of MI.

    Itinerary:
    Oregon, WI
    UP of MI Manistique.
    NW MI including the Leelanau Peninsula, Suttons Bay area.
    Back to WI
    Back to MI including Old Mission Peninsula and Petoskey, Harbor Springs area.
    Cross the Mackinac Bridge four times.
    Return to TN mid September.

    I now have the Achilles Boat better equipped for moving around and setup with some Scotty Mounts for fishing gear.

    Some photos from similar trips past and gear for this trip.

    Spent the previous three weeks in Suttons Bay and Lake Leelanau area and a few trips out to Old Mission Peninsula visiting friends.
    Scored a good deal we couldn't pass up on a 2017 Boston Whaler 15ss. Storing it here for the winter.
    Cruised it around north and south Lakes.
    Leelanau.

    Well. That was a fun Summer. One month in Colorado and two months in Michigan with a couple weeks in WI thrown in.

    Made some reservations again for next year. Really enjoy NW MI and the UP of MI.
