Patrol D Backpacking
We will be going on a grueling 75 mile mountain hike through the Rocky mountains!... well maybe not, but still that would be cool!
Actually we will be going on a ten mile hike over a weekend near the Manistee National Forest. There will be lots of wildlife to see along the trails, we might even see a wild Shane! If we get EXTREMELY lucky there might even be a wild lazy sloth Nima to see. The trail we will hike on is the Baldwin segment of the North Country trail. The North Country trail is 3200 miles long, but unfortunatly we will not have time to hike it all. Still, it will be an awesome trip and everyone should come!
It will be chilly, but not cold, so you should bring three season backpacking gear. Dont overdo it on the gear though because it is a backpacking trip and you will have to carry everything you bring. Nima is not going to carry any of your stuff (but he is suseptible to bribes!).
If you've started complaining like Nima by now I think you should know, SHANE was up for a Hello Kitty fan fiction weekend, so count yourselves lucky that i'm here.
BRING A DAYPACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
