BroTrip 2010 – Grand Island

broTrip-1Launching from the ferry dock near Bay Furnace…

 

So, I have four brothers and for the last couple of years we have talked about getting together and doing some sort of trip every year. At this point in time, this is the first trip where we’ve all made it. The plan was to paddle around Grand Island near Munising, MI. We were to meet up sometime on Tuesday afternoon sort equipment, then paddle up the east side of the island to Trout Point. On Wednesday the thought was to paddle around the north end of the island and camp that evening on the south part of the west side. However, the weather was not very cooperative and in the end we paddled up to Trout Point and then back.

Fortunately, the whole point of this trip wasn’t to go paddle somewhere… it was to get all the brothers together and hang out… and with the crappy weather there was more time for hanging out. Overall it was a great time. It’s always good to see the fam. Hopefully we can work out a winter BroTrip and get some skiing in.

    Hello! I am going to grand island next weekend and I want to make sure I can find right where the rope swing is! Is there anything beside that it is at trout point to help me find it. Thanks

    Tyler,

    Happy to help…

    Once you hook around trout point you are going to be looking for a little cove where you can land and get on shore. From the cove you’ll just want to climb up to the edge of the cliff near the campsites and with any luck the rope will be there hanging from the tree.

    I’ve included two images below to help you better pinpoint where this spot is.

    Good Luck!
