Russ and Barb's First Overnight Adventure

My name is Russ and my wife's name is Barb. We live in a little village of Banfield, Michigan. I found your Bike Overnight site and the link to make the kitty litter panniers. I made the panniers and waited for the weather to cool off to try them out on our first overnight trip.

A Grand Adventure on Michigan's U.P.

Grand Island sits just north of the small town of Munising, on the waters of Lake Superior in Michigan's Upper Peninsula (U.P.) Munising is home to the only ferry service to Grand Island. It is also located within a short drive to the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. Grand Island is considered a National Recreation Area, part of the Hiawatha National Forest. Most people spend just the day on the island; with a little planning, however, I thought it would make for a great family bike overnight.
