Gather up all the gallon milk jugs you can find, and fill them with water and leave them in the sun all day. You can then pour the warmed water over yourself (or get some cute Martin-type to do it for you). It works.

Remember the story about the guy who was down the hole, looking up?

Don't sit on the two-seater with your phone in your pocket.


Lisa, we'll swap pictures of our weekend camping when I get back. Have fun and enjoy the beauty. You can always soak in the tub when you get home. Take lots of bug repellant and sunscreen..and pictures.


In which in the comment section, her Husband will tell you all how she does when camping. In the last 15 to 20 years, the bugs have gotten bigger, the ground harder, the river colder, and she never had to contend with 3 year old Mia camping for the first time and a scaredy-cat dog to boot. Dear and Gentle readers... I'll take the pics and give you the scoop later! Ah hahaha!

P.S. Because I've posted this as insurance, I know she won't complain all weekend. Not now that I have threatened to give it up if she does. LMAO... I am devious aren't I?


Oh and in addition to Mia's flashlight, I take great pleasure in her battery operated "Bubble gun". That will be making the trip too...trust me!

- Martin


Enjoy the Shiawassee, Lisa. Yes, very beautiful area--unfortunately, the river isn't as clean as it used to be. Hell, not many are! Remember to seam-seal that tent before you go--stormy weather coming our way Saturday night! Reminds me of my solo trip to Isle Royale two years ago. Nice weather, for the most part. But, got nailed for about 8 miles on Day Three. Thank God for Marmot and their incredible rain gear! Now, about that acid at that 'Dead show.....


Martin of the barking flashlight and bubble-gun, you really should bring some stuff for MIA to play with! LOL

Lisa, you adventurous soul, you! Have fun!


Lisa, one of my favorite parts in your entry; coercing someone under the influence of LSD to set up your tent!

That was priceless!


"P.S. Because I've posted this as insurance, I know she won't complain all weekend. Not now that I have threatened to give it up if she does. LMAO... I am devious aren't I?"
Martin, I'm scribbling this down in my psychology notes. Brilliant! lol


We want pictures!


OK, OK, OK, I want to know is how did she know exactly how an what was going to happen during the weekend? Yes I am the same chip that she came up camping with and just a brief correction that Lisa was unaware of is that it was the chippewa river (aka. da chippy), but HOLY COW, she pretty much hit da nail on da head. and by da way Lisa you an your readers will be happy to know I do not act 12 years old, I act 12 1/2 years old. God I cant wait to see the posting describing the weekend. by da way, yes, the flashlight was one of many point of interest for Martin an myself. GRRRRRRRRR Woooof Woooof

    I can only quote from the jacket blurb: "If you believe that in America you are innocent until proven guilty, this book will shock you. If you believe in the death penalty, this book will disturb you. If you believe the criminal justice system is fair, this book will infuriate you." A must read. (*****)
