The origanal group has been doing this for over 20 yrs. I have done it for 16. (missed a couple) But its always a blast! Even if the weather takes a dump on us, we still have a blast. Drinking...and dancing in the rain...and drinking....

Wish you could be there Dawnie! What a blast that would be!

That's were I was last weekend...did the old Birch family float down..dates back to the early 80's. Your not allowed to miss it. Had a good time as always. Drank to much, flipped the canoe to much, and to top it all off had a bug fly down my throught causeing me to puke.


We've got a place outside of Lewiston in Moon Lake area. Spent many a nights at Talleys.

Don't feel bad...you think you laughed about it my cousin who was riding with me about died laughing. We had just flipped the canoe and got it flipped back over when it happened. Had to pull over to puke after I was gaging trying to spit it up. So once we pulled over and a "took care of it" we went to take back off and flipped the canoe all over again.....it was a very very sad sight to say the least.

It was sunny out so I didn't think the water was cold at all really.....when I first got wet it sucked but after the inital shock it was fine.

Thats why we float, not canoe. I would be in the water more than the canoe!


The bug visual is still cracking me up! On the bright side, you had more room for beer after that, right?

the canoe rental place on the west side of m33 in mio is called gotts canoe livery.
the owner was my highschool michigan history teacher!
mack lake camp ground is where i would stay , before i had a cottage up there.
for fun try the hilcreast bar on m33 between rose city & mio. ask to join the OOGA OOGA club. they have a pig roast there twice a year. good food & good times!
or for an awesome steak try Timbers steak house . its at the south end of mack lake trail (489). in south branch. hint you'll go past ken neely's place to get there, & be about 2 miles from mine. but go slow m.l.t. (489) is loaded with deer this time of year.
keep yer buns dry!!! lol

I joined the OOGA OOGA club!!!!

We go to Timbers for the awesome steak.

This will be my 21st year tubing I think. Mr Loungello has gone since he was 18 I think - so let's see....That would make it... 24 years for him. How Crazy! This really is a blast if you can make it!
