April 22nd 2011, Easter weekend, I some how convinced six other Rollerbladers to follow me into the Manistee National forest determined to skate a virgin kinked rail and camp on an island for 2 nights via Five kayaks and a canoe.
The canoe was our mule carrying gear, skates, plywood for the start and landing of the rail, and a cooler full of Colorado beer. The weather predictions were calling for rain, and temps as high as 50 degrees.
Little did we know that it would be extremely windy, cold and the rain would turn into snow. Or did we?
