Maybe I'll come check it out. The trail clean up and land use stuff sounds like something I could get involved with.

I was just in Baldwin last weekend and went on some two tracks. There wasn't anything crazy but i was only out for a few hours. It's nice up there and my friends family has a cabin right off the Pere Marquette river. How often do you go there?

Ok settle down about the kid driving into the lake. Was it stupid yes. But people drive into water all around and as yes it is STUPID on so many levels meaning you don't have a boat stay on land. I was at Drummond and saw quads all over those ledges. I mean most people Aernt going to ruin water but I don't believe there are signs? also Drummond has no speed limit and allows all lights on ( off road) and doesn't enforce seat belts. One might think there's no rules here but we don't need to yell at someone other then just say hey not cool stay on land. That's the thing with the forum people go off on people way to much. ( ie the sexist comments in my build forum)

Also
I have tons of Michigan Jeepers on my facebook and we go on trips.
Anyone can add me it's in my info

I go up there about once a month or so. My sister has a cabin up there so that makes it convenient.

The problem is more with uninformed people not taking 5 minutes to get informed. The MI ORV regs are available at http://www.offroad-ed.com/mi/handbook and clearly state what is and is not legal in MI. The Drummond Island Tourism Association and the MI DNR both provide accurate maps of where and how ORV use on Drummond Island is legal - http://www.drummondislandchamber.com...p?page=ATV_ORV
http://www.drummondislandchamber.com...sland_map.html
http://www.midnr.com/publications/pd...land_trail.pdf

What those knuckleheads did wasn't just wrong, it was illegal. There are also a lot of folks on Drummond Island that do not want 4x4 recreation on the island, and stupid stuff like this jeopordizes a lot of hard work by Great Lakes Four Wheel Drive Association, Drummond Island Off Road Club, The Hummer Club, Jeep Jamboree, the Drummond Island Tourism Association, and countless others that fought to keep 4x4 use legal on the island.

It is just plain stupid. He is a dumba$$ for doing it and shouldn't be allowed back to Drummond Island. I showed some relatives that live on the island and they have pictures of them in the water. Hopefully they can find out who they are. Not allowed to do it. Hopefully they get fined and banned. People like this ruin it for the rest of us that follow the rules.
