Macomb County Highpoint Trip Report

I went to the Ford Automotive Proving Grounds in Romeo, MI to try to get permission to climb Twombly Mountain. I was refused permission at the gate, also was refused permission to talk to the Proving Grounds Manager or the Operations Manager and he refused to give me their names or phone numbers. He suggested that I submit my request in writing. I had done this already in addition to sending two e-mails but have received no response yet. Iíll try again. Unfortunately, I may not be able to drop everything as Bob Schwab did, if I do get an OK during the winter. Not the best start for an ambitious trip.
