There used to be a resort at Cavanaugh Lake from the roaring 20's (west of Chelsea and Ann Arbor). It should make an interesting area to detect at. There was a "floating" island in the middle of the lake which was popular for its bandstand and swimming. Good luck hunting.

A2, yes, Scott Sumner was one of my best friends.The sad rest of the story was he had some fear of using that helicopter and he called me about it. I regretfully assured him it was ok and that it would take something catastrophic to bring it down as they will autorotate upon engine failure. From what I hear the gearbox failed locking up the blades so they could not autorotate. I have never been able to pass on my condolences to his wife as I have always felt so bad about it. Small world huh, i could tell you stories of stuff we used to get in trouble with. He was always larger than life. I still miss him terribly. His son was very young when that happened and would have spent little time with him before loosing him.

I talked with some other friends, I did not realize you were talking about Scott’s brother. Scott was a police chief in his own right so I had thought you were talking about him.
