You're invited! I realize that most of you regular blog readers aren't going to be coming to Michigan this summer, but I want to get this information out as many places as possible. I really will be finishing up my end-to-end hike of the North Country Trail this summer. (Good Lord willin' and the crik don't rise). It has taken me 20 years, but I'll be the first woman to hike the whole thing, and number 10 overall. My total is going to come in at about 4378 miles.
Where: Petoskey, MI (see link below for detailed information)
When: Aug 3, 2010 - meet at 9:00 am. We’ll work out car pools to get hikers out to where the trail crosses Taylor Road. The hike will be about 3 miles, then a half mile back for the picnic.
What: Walk Joan’s final NCT miles with her
Enjoy a picnic lunch- free, our compliments!
Camp over in the field if you wish
If you are free to stay, Joan will be giving the first showing of a brand new program about the NCT on Wednesday, Aug 4, sponsored by the Top of Michigan Trails Council. Time TBA
See a sneak preview of Joan’s next book, for children, called “Moose in Boots.”
How: Just RSVP to Joan at firstname.lastname@example.org before July 25.
Everyone is welcome, but we need to know how much food we need for lunch. You will need your own mid-morning snack and water.
Facilties: Indoor bathroom and running water. Field for camping (no hookups). If a lot of people come, a porta-potty may be added. There are many motels and commercial campgrounds in the Petoskey area if you prefer more amenities.
