To the Islands I Go

This weekend I will join 19 other people and we will travel to GArden Island in Lake Michigan. This small island is one of several in a small Archipelago that lay just north of Beaver Island. During the trip we will explore this island and see what we can still find as it has slowly been reclaimed by Nature since the last resident died, Peter Monatou, died in the 1940s. Though it seems tempting to try to visit the other islands that lay nearby this will not be done (at least not by me). Maybe that can happen on some future expedition after all we are calling ourselves the Pirates of the Archipelago and that implies we ought to visit the other islands too. If possible I will post some information while I am on the island and you will be able to see it if you follow follow me on Twitter. You can also track information on the following map which should become more interesting when we arrive at Fisherman's Island State Park in Charlevoix tomorrow evening. You can also learn more about trip from the Fortune Bay Expedition Team website information page here.
