what weeks are you going and what parts are u going to? I personally can't make it, but my father is heading up to mi and wants me to go with him. I just had my 2nd daughter and don't want to leave the wife with a 2 year old and a 5 week old. But i worry about my dad, he has a tendacy to wonder off and get lost enjoying the scenery and his dog. Got him a GPS unit last year and he made the trip by himself a couple of times. I just don't think its safe for anyone to hunt grouse by themselves, unless they just walk along roads. Its to easy to break an ankle 3 miles from the truck where theres no cell service.
