Jeff's 10-Day Up-North Cosmic Adventure 2004
This past July I did a long-week trip up north that had 5 diverse angles to it, so I thought I'd write up a report about it. It was supposed to have yet another angle to it---include the family for part of it---but they bailed due to the drivetime.
Here's what I did in 10 days:
*drove to U.P. for a folk music festival; met new friends; found a new cabin--2 days
*drove to Minnesota for a weeklong Integrative Studies retreat, foodfest and workout frenzy--6 days
*drove back thru U.P. and slept on Superior shore; then started 1 massive day wherein I woke up then visited with Guru Roland and climbed ski tower and met new friends; drove down to L.P.
*then saw start of AuSable Canoe Marathon and saw old friends;
*then drove to cabin in woods for Mike's 40th birthday by Lake Huron and got there late at night but in time to see friends giving him a toast around very long table lit by candles in the woods; partied in woods, saw performance art; after another day of R&R at Mike's cabin, I drove home.
Here's the actual report, with some pics.
Here's what really happened...
