I think we have all been there. The directions seemed clear enough at the start: Eaton county, 2.5 mile east of I-127, 0.5 miles north of Round Lake Road.
My first clue regarding the quality of the directions should have been the fact that Round Lake Road and I-127 are in Clinton County, 25 miles north of here.
The second complication involved the 2.5 miles. Was that GPS east or 2.5 miles on Round Lake Road? It makes a difference. Round Lake Road staggers across the landscape like a drunk on his way to the party store to pick up his third bottle of whiskey. Round Lake Road is also devoid of shoulders so I had to park a mile ease of the site.
I figure I walked four miles today. The middle two miles were the hardest. I was walking on soggy corn stubble. I never did find the tree I was looking for.
I did see some pretty country and some magnificent deer blinds.
