Did some grocery shopping... got my Dramamine so I'm not the one barfing over the deck rail into Lake Huron.

I know it's a long way off, but we're starting to see the rally slip into the 10-day weather forecast. 78 on Wednesday and 79 on Thursday! It was 106 in St. Louis yesterday and will be just as hot today. That will be such a nice escape.

The Silver Pearl departs this Friday travelling up route 23/75 all day Saturday through Michigan. Anyone else going to be on the road mostly in the morning?

If so, wave if you see a white suburban with 30' classic in tow!

I'm envious of your week long trip, Dan. Not enough vacation for us to do that. We'll be following the same route starting Wednesday after work.

I just told Captain Adam that we are all meeting at the Pink Pony on Mackinac Island at 6 p.m. on Friday and he said (in pirate), "Tell 'em all I'll be sittin' on a bar stool with the rest of the salty boat captains."

Mackinac Island Tickets

Katie from Shepler's Ferry Lines will be at the registration table on Thursday from 3 PM to 5 PM. This is for our convenience, but you certainly don't need to go through Shepler's if you don't want to.

Katie will have available:
1) Round trip ferry tickets to Mackinac Island, $18.
2) Carriage Tours on Mackinac Island, $22.
3) Grand Hotel Lunch Buffet, $37.

She will not have a credit card machine available so cash will be required.

My wife and I have never been to Mac island. For first timers, is the carriage ride and buffet worth it? A $37 lunch better knock my socks off! Do I have to wear socks? Is there a MACdonalds on the island? (<---joke)

Anyone else going?

Been there done that... it's nice but very expensive. The view is ... well.. grand, but not worth a second trip for us. Carriage ride is fun, but for us at least, the best deal is the bike ride around the island. We won't be there until Fri so won't be joining ya'll, have fun, take lots of pics, bring lots of money!!

These "Macdonalds" will be on the island.

We're doing the carriage ride. Haven't decided yet on the Grand Hotel lunch buffet. This will be our first time on island too.

I'm definitely going to the island, but I'm going to make my decision when we get closer to the date and can see what the weather is going to be like.

I'm going to skip the carriage and take my bike with me on the ferry for an extra $8.

I'm undecided about the buffet. $37 is a week of groceries for me, but I just noticed that the buffet includes seafood. Mmm, maybe I'll splurge.
