OK Michiganders! Looking to start planning a spring/summer run. One of my ideas is to hook up in Flint/Saginaw then take 23 N (Lake Huron View) up into Mackinaw Island. The scenery is spectacular. :thumbs

Looking for some feedback as to any other ideas and or if you like this one.

We need to stay away from May begining of June just in case we have the Super Special Run back to the Lansing Craft Center.

I would like to get things rolling so I can also post on the SSR Club site in advance.

Looking forward to hearing from you!!!!!!

sound good to me. another nice route is up the lake Michigan side (m-22) from Manistee to Empire then up North Port and back down to T.C. that could be one day then the next day could be from T.C. up us 31 to Charlevoix,Petoskey. Harbor Springs then go up M119 thought the tunnel of trees to Cross Village.
If we can get enough people Jan can look into a group rate at some motel. If you need some help let me know I'll do what I can.

....

I have been thinking of looking at day run over here if you guys might come.
Possible 2 different auto museums, car hop burger joint, (4 acres under glass with house plants, put put, and small zoo with alligator’s buffalo exotic birds) drive to the tip of southern mainland Canada “Point Pelee National Park”. Carolinian forest, sand and water. The farthest point would be 1 hour from bridge. I could pick up the convoy there at the bridge.

Wingrider,

I agree with you this is also another scenic route. You can't go wrong in MI by traveling via of the Lake Shore lines :thumbs

I think we will need Jan. Both of these runs are going to be a full MI weekend.

I'll keep this in mind also. Looking for some ideas for short runs too.

Let me know one day run or a over nite deal and I will fill the time with stuff.

The Dairy freeze was opened in 1954 and still has car hops.
It’s located on county road 34 between Essex and Cottam.

An over night trip through Canada to Niagra Falls would be fun also! Only a 4-5 hour drive.

Love what I'm hearing :thumbs

Keep the suggestions coming. I'll narrow it down shortly.

The Canada Trip is a go! I'll be working with Rebel and we will try and get that info out to you shortly.

Ray, I also like what you said about Niagra Falls. Maybe we can turn this into an overnight trip along with Rebel's ideas.

I would like to shoot for three to four runs (one of them being a MI Weekend Gettaway). The Holiday weekends will be rough for me as that's when I spend time camping with my family.

Scott, I hear you.......I hate the winter too! I thought this would give us something to focus on for the winter months and help pass the time.

Canada Run

OK Michiganders,

Our first run will be to Canada (Essex County). Looking to set the month for mid April beginning of May. So keep these months open. Dates to follow......
Rebel is going to be our lead off man. I am going to let him set this run up. I will notify all of you as soon as we have the schedule of events and dates set.

We will not be going to Niagra Falls for this run. This will be planned on another run at a later time.
