This Michigan Location Is A Must See For A One Bag Road Trip
We're busy as hell in Michigan. Taking trips around the state can be cumbersome and exhausting. It's time to take a one bag one trip in MIchigan.
What's a one bag road trip?
Here's how the concept came to be. My wife and I were brainstorming ideas about getting away for the weekend. We didn't want to spend a lot of money and our Buick has more than enough room for us to lay down in when the seats are put down. We are short people.
We went on Amazon and purchased a inflatable mattress that is specific for our Buick, it was cheap too. We had a place to stay, just like that. Next thing we had to do is pack a bag, it's just for one night.
We were heading up north to do some star gazing. That made packing easy because we left home around 8pm to get to Indian River. We knew it would be late by the time we arrived, there was still star gazing to do. We were only in Indian River for nine hours.
We packed clean undies, sweatshirts, toothbrushes and deodorant. We also brought a small cooler to keep the 3 hotdogs we brought with us cold.
To sum it up. A one bag road trip is one that you take that will get you out of town overnight for a quick adventure. Save some money by sleeping in your car.
We were going to sleep at a rest stop initially but changed our minds and stayed at Burt Lake State Park. It was really dark when we arrived, we viewed the stars there.
Cool things you might discover on a one bag road trip in Michigan.
The skies are dark up north. There's a lot less light polution. The stars were bright.
The trees are starting to turn a little bit.
When we woke up we had no idea how big Burt Lake was. We also had no idea it was about 75 yards from our campsite. That was a pleasant surprise. We also had the opportunity to get some good coffee at one of the local shops.
A nine hour road trip with one bag. It was nine hours of good times and adventure. Pack a bag and hit the road.
