Headed North today

Well today is a day we’ve been prepping for for a few weeks now. We are headed North, away from the cozy safety net of the in-laws. We’ll be on our way to the upper peninsula where we plan to visit and explore for many weeks to come. It’s a place I’ve never been and we are excited to see as much of it as possible, and also spend what’s hopefully the hottest remainder of the summer season, before headed further west where it’s been so hot lately.

We don’t really have much of a plan beyond that. We will be figuring out where to go and where to stay mostly on the fly, since trying to make and stick to a rigid itinerary and reservation schedule is stressful, and not very fun. We’ll be doing much fewer campgrounds and way more dispersed camping in US Forest lands, since it’s the first state where that type of land is so abundant, and you can basically camp for free for 14 days at a time. We’ll see how it goes!

So the adventure continues. Lots of unknowns ahead, but that’s part of the excitement of it.
