Have you gotten to the point in the summer where you feel like you've "been there, done that" with everything?

We get it, it's a summer in the middle of a world-wide pandemic, things can seem a bit boring and bleak. However, we are lucky here in Michigan to have such a wide variety of activities to turn to.

Maybe you've already been to the beach, maybe you've already hiked every trail you can find nearby and maybe, just maybe you have had enough of just your average day on the river.

It's pretty easy, when you are so surrounded by adventure, to take it for granted and to, basically, just crave more!

Recently, I have been hearing the word "gnarly" a lot. According to Urban Dictionary, "gnarly" can be defined as "when you've gone beyond radical, beyond extreme, it's balls out danger, & or perfection, & or skill or all of that combined."

It's been a common slang term forever, mostly used by surfers but it has found it's way back into my vocabulary and it got me thinking..."What are some things here in Michigan that could be considered "gnarly"!?

Here's a few ideas that might get your adrenaline going!

Would you try any of these? What's the most extreme thing you've ever done in Michigan?
