MIA Michigan Folks??

It appears that our Michigan Chapter members are either hibernating or just getting old and/or lazy!

Let's have a "check-in" and see how many still have their SSR's here in Michigan and might be interested in making some runs this coming season.

I'll kick this off--

HarleyGuy, Pinckney.

I think if I was a snowbird, I'd HAVE to have an SSR in both locations. Living at my second home at the perfect time of the year to live there and not have an SSR would be torture for me. Opening the sunroof and rolling down the windows of my suv just wouldn't hack it IMO.

A "run" is where we gather as a group and tour the countryside "en masse". One of the longer Michigan runs was organized by Glen and Elizabeth (Harley Guy), and we did the complete outer edge of the upper peninsula. This particular run obviously took several days, but shorter runs were led by other members and included an apple orchard run in the fall, the tunnel of trees, etc. All were great! Although we live in NE Indiana, we were "adopted" by Hot Rod Girl years ago and are proud Michigan "foster children". Always up for a "run".

05 Aqua Blur 1SB, Born on 10/20/04, Lighted WindsuppR, Chrome Wheels
One of the longest "runs" organized was the trip when we all met up in Columbine Springs, CO and traveled in a group to the 2011 International Rally in Flagstaff, AZ. We left Columbine Springs and drove up Mt. Evans, at the time it was the highest paved road in the US. Then across Colorado to Moab, UT. We then then spent 3 days in southern Utah visiting all the National Parks in the area including Arches, Canyon Lands, Natural Bridges, Capitol Reef, Staircase, Bryce Canyon, Cedar Breaks, Zion Canyon, North Rim of the Grand Canyon, up Monument Valley then back down Monument Valley, then to Flagstaff. Had a great time. We also did the leaf & lighthouse tour with you Michiganers in 2010 that Quest mentioned in the above post. Both of the were organized by Glen & Elizabeth (Harleyguy). That one ended on a sour note for Dee & I. On the last day of that trip, Dee fell over my shoes in the motel at Escanaba, MI. She went by ambulance back up to the hospital in Marquette, MI to get a metal rod placed in her left leg. As soon as she came out of surgery, I drove our SSR back to Kansas City and our two daughters drove back up to Marquette in Dee's Maurano so she could ride in the back seat with her leg stretched out across. Except for that last part we had a great time. I hope if you all have any "runs" similar to this please keep me in mind. Kenny Thomas - SSR051- Parkville, MO.

Kenny, that 2011 International Rally, Flagstaff, AZ tour was probably the most fun road trip I ever was on! We all had such a great time and it gave us so many great memories!
I'd do that trip again with that group in a heartbeat!! Glen & Elizabeth were such great tour leaders!

Hey, Glen, Marty and I really miss those days. Talk about all the fun we had a lot.
We are in FL from Oct. to May when we head for MV and then home.

If you get something going during the summer, we will probably show up.
Miss you and Elizabeth and Dave and Joyce and of course the rest of MI group.
We do spend time with a few of of the old gang who spend their winters in FL.

Hi Doug, there is no physical location of the Michigan Chapter or any other Fanatic Chapter. It's a loose name that geographicly connects those in Michigan or other States. Any Michigan activity will be posted in the Great Lakes region of the Clubs,Events and Discussion section of our forum.

Hope this helps! Keep enjoying your PermaGrin!

There could be if you wanted to get something up. A few years back a few of us meet at Jerry's Pub on Whopper Lake.
