There is a State land I go to every year just right next to Little town called Vanderbilt, there are all kinds of beautiful lakes and rivers in that area, I highly suggest Pickerel Lake, awesome place to Overland.

I live in Pittsburgh, not many places to overland unless you go to West Virginia.

Welcome! I believe I've taken a route from around Newaygo up towards Irons before. If you map it out when you do it, please share. I forgot to record it when I did it.

I like where this is going. I got bitten by the overland bug 2 years ago but my only trips so far was to a family member's back yard in traverse city and overland expo east this year. I've been slowly gathering the stuff I need and outfitting my truck. I still need a little more water capacity and I have to figure out how I want to do extra fuel.

I see you are from Pinckney Ryan. I used to live in Ann Arbor and ride my motorcycle around Pinckney area, good roads ( in Michigan lol). The overland bug got me this year itself when I accidentally stumbled upon Expedition Overland Alaska/Yukon series. I immediately sold my car to a friend and got myself a 4x4 and loving it every bit except for the gas mileage lol. I am actually heading to Big Bend National Park, TX for the Christmas break, looking forward to that. I think we should do a small gathering sometime in Jan 2017 when everybody gets home from the break and all cheered up. Looking forward to meeting you guys and I will also keep an eye out for well kitted Taco when I am in Pinckney lol!
