You're from Iron Mountain? That's where I live too.

I'll work out the dates with the woman. She is not a very social person, but she is nice and isn't awkward or anything, just enjoys being home. I had planned on talking her into packing a tent in the car and camping out a night or two while we are up there anyway.

What town are you near? I'll look on teh map and check routes and such.

I'm in Iron River, and my cottage at the lake is about 10 miles west of Iron River on US 2. It's an easy drive to Houghton from there- up 45 North and then to 26(?) I believe. Funny story- my husband's cousin drove his son to Tech, and then was going to stay here overnight. I gave him driving directions from Tech to the cottage and figured it'd take him about an hour and a half, with his 8 year old and brand new baby. Three hours later, he still wasn't here.

Hmmmm. He finally showed up hours later at the McDonald's in Iron River. I asked him if he was ok, but he was a bit sheepish.

Well, he punched our address in his GPS. Apparently, his TomTom only recognized two "real" roads in the whole UP and it took him through Marquette before bringing him south back to US 2. He got a tour of the whole UP courtesy of his TomTom!

Anyway, we are right off of US 2.

Oh, by the way, brewing would be ok. But the water at the cottage is from a well, and it's not very good. So, we'd have to haul brewing water out there, too. That's why I suggested maybe one or two brewers brewing, and others advising (and drinking). I really don't care how many brew, as long as you bring all of your stuff!

I can provide one complete AG set up, two propane burners, immersion chiller, hose, and all the cold water you need from the well.

I have a 10 gallon MLT, a 5 gallon MLT, and misc stuff, that I can bring from home.

I probably won't brew, since I'd like to be able to show everybody around.

I really hope this happens- all are welcome!

Homer- you're welcome to stay at the cottage, or pitch a tent down by the lake if you'd rather. There are also quite a few campgrounds within 15 miles of my place- one is just about 2 miles away at Golden Lake.

I have a camper with a queen bed, a bunkhouse with one couch, and the cottage with a loft. Up in the loft is a double bed, and a couple of single beds. There is also a pull-out couch in the living room. So, for a couple, you could have the upstairs if you want or the camper.

I'm not sure about brewing yet. I want to, but I don't know if we are taking our dogs (I doubt it) or what we will need to pack. Water should be no problem. I could always bring RO water and add to it if need be. Also, I think (hope) I could help anyone else adjust their water if necessary. I think you've got a good handle it as well, and we could bounce ideas off each other.

Just saw this. Haven't been on for a few days. But count me in. I'll try to plan around the date when it is set.

We get a date set yet? Looks like July 10th, 17th and 31st are open for us. It won't be a brew day if nobody is going to brew. I guess I could haul up some gear, carbon filtered water, food and a keg to the cottage. If anyone wants to pair up with me and brew a 10gal batch of something, just send a pm and we can figure out what to brew.

We can do any of those days. But for Homercidal, he says either July 10 or July 17.

Homercidal, which do you prefer?
