Did you find the ring? I live in East Lansing and this seems like it would be good practice.

I'm from the Plainwell area now. I just moved from Grand Haven, so anywhere in Kalamazoo or Grand Rapids is close for me.

Where ya thinking of? What type of trip?

Give or take the weather, we'll be camping about 30 miles north of West Branch. Hitting mostly homestead cellar holes and some old tourist areas. We tend to move a lot in the northwest lower so i can't really predict exactly where till I find inspiration lol.

That has sort of been my problem, finding the inspiration for a new location. I do have a private permission I havenít been to yet but thatís in the Carsonville MI area a ways from where youíll be. Iíll have to take a look up there to see my options. I fear it may rain that weekend...hopefully not!

Glad I could help you with the inspiration! I was leaning towards the Benton Lake area as well but who knows...one of these days Iíd love to try to get permission to the old amusement park near Grosse Ile. I hear you used to be able to dock there but new ownership has restricted access due to partiers docking their boats and trashing the place.

Benton lake, like near White Cloud?

Gross Isle.....now that's kinda down home, lol. A place i really don't go anymore, though I have a few places I'd really like to hunt in the Wayne/Westland area. Places my grandfather told me of years ago, and I hunted as a teen in the 90's. I wonder what I could find nowdays with more smarts and better equipment.

If you ever head down to Wayne/Westland area hit me up. I commute to Dearborn daily for work. I havenít really searched that area yet for possible hunting spots though.

Benton Lake thatís at the southern end of the National forest. Itís north of Grand Rapids.

Benton Lake... seems like a very random area not highly populated. Why there?

I only took a quick look at the area, it looks like my Oh-Zee, a crapload of state land national forest. I would think it's ripe with cellar holes by the hundreds, and plenty more. I actually know of a few interesting things just to the north of there too.

I actually think i'm gonna take a closer look at it in time, just because it's kinda "uncharted territory" to me.
