We'll know in a week.
Only 4.2 gallons, because - Sean says - Joel shorted us on the malt.

"There is a certain remote stretch of river on the Middle Escananba that I love to fish by myself; the place seems made for wonder and solitude." - Robert TraversIt was the last day of the trout season. No rises, no catches, no nibbles, but well enjoyed nevertheless.
I generally do not respond to blog related comments unless they are properly left as comments on the blog itself. As such, since this request is not on the blog, it is exactly as if your request does not actually exist. You are taking your chances. One can of Gordon has already been consumed. Fortunately for you, I am fasting today for Yom Kippur, so I need only protect the calibration set from nephew Brian and friend, who arrived late last night. The best way to do that is get out and procure some local swill, as they will not be able to tell the difference. We will be heading into town this morning to get some decoy beers before they wake up.
I think the weather will break just in time for your arrival. Looks like you'll get some dry cool weather, and peaking color over the next week.
Finally, you may recall that you remain an author on this blog. Feel free to document your journey east, if you feel so inclined. - mw
Glad to see you made it to camp (with the supplies no less!) I expect that Joel's calibration set will remain unopened for the next couple of days....
Should we bring anything such as towels? Hope the weather clears up a bit (although I wouldn't mind a bit of rain.) See you Wednesday morning!

"Yoopers want you to know how lucky they are to live in such a beautiful place, how hard it is to do that, how their jokes about themselves are funnier than anything you've heard — and why you shouldn't move there. Just visit. Anytime. Come again. And next time ship the thimbleberry jelly home."
"The Upper Peninsula's economy "is struggling, like most economies, especially when you put it in the context of the Michigan economy as a whole. Michigan leads the nation in unemployment," Ferrarini says. "We've got Baraga County, where one out of every four people are unemployed, but then you look at Mackinac County and you see we have about 2 percent there because of the tourism surrounding the island, Mackinac Island, a beautiful place." Although there are pockets of high unemployment on the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, the economy there is relatively stable despite the recession. Lahti credits the diversity of industries, including minerals, forestry, tourism and agriculture."
"The meat turnover was brought to Michigan's Upper Peninsula by immigrant miners from Cornwall, England, and "Yoopers" — the local population — are very opinionated about them. A pasty is a small circle of pie crust filled with meat, potatoes, onions and spices. Some have carrots. The pasty at Lawry's Pasty Shop in Marquette — voted best by the local newspaper — has rutabaga."
Weekend Edition Sunday explores the culture, traditions and economy of Michigan's Upper Peninsula.
