I’m off on a short adventure of my own over the next few days. I’m headed to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula for a little fun in the snow. While there, I’m going to be snowshoeing, cross country skiing, snowmobiling, and attending the World Ice and Snow Sailing Association’s Championship. The WISSA competition involves wind powered sleds flying across the ice at breakneck speeds, which of course, sounds like great fun.
For those unfamiliar with the Upper Peninsula, it is a fantastic wilderness destination that offers a lot to the outdoor enthusiast all year round. In the summer, it is great place to hike and camp, and since it falls on Lake Superior, paddlers will find plenty to do as well. The UP is one of those remote places that few people visit and many don’t even know exists, but it is truly one of the great outdoor locations in the entire U.S.
Of course, I’ll share more about the trip when I get back, and updates will likely be sporadic the rest of the week. Hope everyone is having their own adventures while I’m away.
