Yes you can find me very easily. I'll be the one with an aluminum trailer.

Thumbs up thanks a lot!

Oh thanks, your a great help.

But from what I can tell your spot will be where all the wild parties are and that is where I want to be.

Hi everyone,

Have lived in Mi. all my life and vacationed numerous time in the upper part of the lower peninsula. Mackinac area is beautiful. You must go over to Mackinac Island which is a quick ferry ride (take Shepplers). The island is beautiful but no gasoline powered vehicles allowed. Bicycling is fun, and horse and buggy rides are available. It can be a tad pricey though as the tourist season is relatively short in Mi. and they have to make their $$ when they can.
If you are a boater, check out Mullet and Burt Lakes, their gorgeous. They are part of a chain of lakes and Lake Huron is accessible from Mullet (via a lock).
If you have an opportunity to go to the northwest part of the state, stop in at Petoskey, Charlevoix and Traverse City. All beautiful towns. Traverse City has a Airstream campground called Holiday Park. It's very very nice. Check it out, its in all the travel books. Hope I've been of some help to those that decide to go.
Don't eat too much fudge....and btw, charter fishing is very popular too. Lake trout and salmon. Have fun.

Bruce
you can leave me a pm if you'd like more info

Bruce,
I was in Mackinaw City a few years ago and attended a play of some sort at a theatre. I can't remeber the name of the facility but the play was tremendous. It was about America. If you could help me remember the name of it I amsure there are people at the Rally that would enjoy attending.

I have always envisioned a wild WBCCI party at the International Rally with a rally goer who partook of too much spirits, trying to find their home in a sea of aluminum.

TnSue,

Mackinac City is pretty small. I'm not familiar with the name of the theatre, but there is a nice visitors "welcome center" that I know will be familiar with the theatre you are looking for.
Hope this helps.

Talking strobe light

Jack, in ref to a rally member imbibing to much and getting confused in a sea of aluminum.

Is it permissible to put a strob light on top of my AS in order to help ME? WE did that when we had a marina on a lake in East TX...topped off our marina in the water with a light from a squad car that led our wayward customers home at night. From the middle of a lake at night the shore line looks all the same.

I'm not sure you can do that...I can see a cargo freighter coming ashore one foggy night.

Maybe we can get you a flag pole and a set of flags. You could raise specific flags to note what degree of distress you are in!

Thumbs up flags

Jack. that will do.

Any ole port in a storm you know!

Sure don't want a freighter in MY lap.

Will forgo the strobe light and settle for the flags, Sir.

Ok...called this AM and set up the reservation.

We had a slight change of plans....we'll be there on the 14th and will be leaving on the 17th.

We are committed at this point.

Time is passing quickly so don't let this one pass you by. Reservations can be made via the campground web site, mail, or phone call (Saturday's only during April).

Note that this campground will fill so don't let too much time pass before you make your reservation. Full hookups here and lots of stuff for the kids and things to do for us adults also!

Regards,

Jack

Hey, Jack, I've been following with interest your efforts to sign up the Mackinaw Rally.
Don't know if you got my previous post, but is anyone welcome? What I mean, is, are you just a group of old friends having a get-together or would we be welcome? Sounds like a really interesting spot.
