I am a wealth of knowledge when it comes to exploring our area, I am an avid outdoorsman, I camp, hike, bike, ski, snowshoe, ATV, motorcycle, snowmobile and Jeep nearly the entire U.P. and if you have heard of it, chances are I've been there, or done that. I also know some places "off the radar" if you are looking to get away from the tourist areas. Just ask, I'll be happy to give you advice.
