    Default Triple-A on Brockway ...

    Not anti-aircraft artillery but a pretty cool coincidence none the less. Here's a scan of AAA's Home & Away magazine cover for September/October 2007. I knew they had featured a stage road the second I spied it!

    Yeah, the missle launch sites are a little bit further up the tip of the keweenaw than brockway.

    Thanks for posting that link, Carl. I've taken friends/family/other visiting people out to the launch site many times so it's great to have the full history behind it.

    Triple-A, missile bases on the Keweenaw, magazines and stage roads - too weird! I do love the U.P.!

    Probably something about not honoring insurance claims for Subarus filed in late October on that road.
    LSPR organizer, but not speaking as one here....

    Don't forget about the AAA road that runs from Skanee to Big Bay north of Lanse/Herman. I believe that (part of it) was a stage road for POR back in the day?

    I would love to see more of that area used in future LSPR's. *hint, hint

    Too weird, indeed Mike!

    Nuthin. There are some paragraphs about shipwrecks and glass-bottomed boats, the Quincy Mine is mentioned and then they venture east to chat up the Soo Locks ... Nothing about the extensive rallysport history on the UP either.

    Indeed! Let's hear it for some stages in The Huron's! Triple A road, Silver River, Dynamite Hill, Ford Rd, Haypress Dam and Big Eric's! This would solve the forest super highway speed issue, and would bring back some of the endurance factor to rallying. Just my $.02.
