Summer Trip Plans

Post by nitefuzz »

We live in northern Indiana and two of the rides we are going to do this summer are ride to Mackinaw Bridge and do the Island. The other is to ride down to Brown County in southern Indiana.

For the Mackinaw ride we will make the trip up the west coast of Michigan all the way along Lake Michigan and ride the tunnel of trees up in the area of Big Bear Dunes, cross the Mackinaw Bridge and stay a couple days in St. Ignace, see the sights and shops and go out to the Island and then make the ride back. This will probably be a three or four day adventure.

Brown County is going to be a three or four day stay riding the area and staying at a cabin in Brown County. Some of the places to go to while down there is Nashville, Corydon, Salem, French Lick and many other little towns scattered through that area of Indiana. This should be an awesome ride in the Brown County are and Forest.

Haven't picked any dates yet but will soon.

Any comments or suggestions from anyone that has rode these areas are welcome.

As long as everything goes good and we get our new to us wing this tax season, we have planned a road trip to Wing Ding and the Dells for some waterpark fun. . .

A few years ago we had a wonderful trip to Brown County. Nashville was a great little town with places to eat and enjoy. Too much lady shopping but the wife did enjoy! Being a basketball fan, the trip to French Lick was a lot of fun but then we had lunch at the West Baden Springs Hotel. Wow that place is great.

Have a wonderful time in Brown County! I am sure you will enjoy the Mackinaw Bridge and Island also. Don't forget to visit Hell, Michigan!
