If the campground is full, there is a nice campground in Ishpeming that I stay at twice each summer that is worth checking out, or a wide range of hotels and motels in the area.

Last chance! If you plan on attending and haven't notified me, this is the last chance to do so. Spaces are almost full. You have until the 20th. After that, its pot luck.

I hope things pick up on this page. It seems kind of quiet for being this close to starting. Who is coming and when? I'm keeping my travel dates loose to work around the weather, but I plan to be in the Marquette area Tuesday or Wednesday, to give me time to visit family and friends. If anyone else is coming before Thursday, we could meet up early. I'll be staying with friends outside of Harvey, which is a few miles from the campground

Yes, I plan to stay with friends a few miles from the campground. I plan to ride north through Wisconsin and arrive near the camp ground on Tuesday or Wednesday, depending on which day has the best weather. This will give me time to see family and friends before everyone else arrives. I'll be heading south through lower Michigan with the group, at least for most of it. That's to be determined later.

You guys are missing some great weather. I Got here at 1 PM tues and started without you. I went out for a ride on an ATV today and then rode the wing to Ishpeming to eat and vist a bunch of friends. I don't know what tomorrow will bring yet, but it could be more riding on the ATV and riding to see my aunt before everyone gets here. That's if the forecated rain holds out.

For those of you heading this way, you might want to have lunch before crossing the bridge. The whole UP is getting wet. It started here at about 3 or 4 am, and doesnt plan to stop until about noon.

Well, I finally made it home! 2684 miles later...
I met a couple of friends in London Ontario for a couple of hours and headed to visit my relatives in Fonthill. Spent a couple of days sight seeing and even manage to spend a day at a beach on Lake Erie.

I took way too many pictures and will begin to post them once I get sorted. For those of you who couldn't make, you missed a great ride!
