Your looking at a 45 minute drive from the base. Are you just coming for a couple of weeks or is it a long term stay? If it's short term you could probably find a pull while in town. Let me know, later.
yes they are microscopic and get everywhere. they've made it all the way across the U.S. but I don't think they're on the west coast yet. They come from over seas on an ocean vessel that was introduced through the great lakes. No one knows how to kill them without killing everything in the lakes. Supposedly they reproduce and grow very rapidly. Eventually they are thought to choke off the whole lake killing everything living there.
