Mackinaw City Forums Rally

Im planning a Mackinaw City, MI forums rally, but I havent been able to nail down a date, maybe everyone can help me. I was looking at the last weekend in September (26-28) or the first weekend in October (3-5)

What does everyone think?

Hi Laura,

Either date works for Brad and me. We will be bringing both Airstreams.

Here's a few teaser pictures of Wilderness State Park and Macinac City this side of the island.

Notice the Baileys in Brad's hand keeps the chill off!

Laura, just a heads up about layering for weather: two years ago we were in Traverse City, MI, last week of Sept/first of October, expecting cool but pleasant weather. Surprise, we found cold rain and snow for a couple of days. Brrr! Max bought a Carhart coat unexpectedly We had a great time, but we hadn't packed for what the region delivered. ~G

Yea, I always go up to White Fish Point, MI every year in November, and the weather can never be predicted!

Wilderness SP is my absolute favorite in Michigan!! We just stayed there a week in July.

You'll need to strongly consider the upper loop because although the lower loop is close to the lake, it becomes a quagmire when it rains, is almost all sand/dirt and the sites are considerably smaller.

Good luck on your plans. We did a forums rally up there about 3 years ago. I'll have to look but I think we may have a few pictures up, either on the original thread or in the photo section.

Here's the link to the old thread. There may be some information that is still useful.

Hi Carol,
Boy I wish I could join you! My son is a senior this year and every weekend we have a varsity football game until November.

Here is our site from July. We had about the only sites without a tree. See my deluxe SOB?




We had 5 families camping and the upper loop left us plenty of room between sites for our canopy and some games:



A happy AS sighting in the lower loop (not on the water like the lucky PP) Excuse the quality of the twilight picture.


On a happy OT personal note DH and I are going to Jackson Center on Monday to tour the factory and stop along the way to dream shop at a big AS dealer in Findlay. Keep your fingers crossed I can infect my DH with aluminitis

Teresa

UP? U Betcha!

I actually was on the phone this afternoon with a friend from Petoskey area, asking if he and his wife were interested in a color tour through the UP and around Lake Superior last weekend in September or first weekend in October (plus a couple of days)! That MIGHT work out for us. We gotta' pass through Mac City sooner or later, eh?

Hah!

Wheeeee!
