I live just a stones throw away from the Michigan National Guard camp here in Grayling. Since 911 they have put the camp off limits to civilians. I have contacted the base commander to see if there was some way for me to get a pass to do a little hunting on the base proper, but unfortunately he said no. Too bad, as I know the EXACT spot where this photo was taken. Can you just imagine what might be hiding there. :shocked04: :bangahead01: I'm not gonna give up altogether though. Where there is a will there's a way. ;) Maybe if I apply for a part time job there doing something like cleaning up old pieces of metal. :drool: rofl

Off limits? With an American name like Hoser you'd think it would be a slam dunk! :twirlingeyes: Anyway, that base commander may not be there forever... never know! Good luck!
