Just wanted to let you know we will be joined by our friends who have a pop-up. They are the people we traveled with to Vermont last fall. Yes, they specified the Canavera group!

Caravan through MI to Mackinaw City?

I was just wondering who is taking what route to MC. With a little timing there might be a chance to meet up for a little caravan. We will take US 127 at Clare, MI to I-75 to MC.

We will be coming from southeast so we will hit US127 at the Michigan 55 intersection. You will be coming south of us. I haven't figured driving time yet so while its possible, I'm not sure of the timeframe yet.

Just checked the 10 day forcast for Mackinaw City. Weather will be Sunny, high in the low 70's lows in the 50's. For those of us arriving on Sunday it will be picture perfect.

Hey Mackinaw City rally folks. I just got a PM from the infamous Drcharles2 also referred to as Dr C. He lives about 50 miles east of the Mackinac Bridge. Here is the text of his message to me.

"I would like to invite your group up to our home for a lunch on the north shore of Lake Huron. I could also provide a short guided tour to Drummond Island, by ferry, a truly unique natural geologic phenomenon. The total time to allot, perhaps four to six hours (hour drive each way to DeTour Village), if you would be interested as a day outing. You would be back at your campground by Miller time. Either Tues., the 13th or Wed., the 14th might be the best days for us."

I won't speak for you all but if you might be interested in going on this outing, let me know and how many are in your party. I'll call Charles and let him know what day and how many to expect. Looks like this may be a fun outing for the group.

Regards,

Jack

Invite from "Dr C"...

Hey, Jack, that certainly is very gracious invitation! Ellen and I would be happy to accept. The only caveat would be that we will be travelling with our small Jack Russell/Beagle and wouldn't want to leave him all day in the A/S. He doesn't bark and gets to travel with us to all points. If that would work for the Host, great, if not we would understand.

Regards,

Bill

We are bringing two dogs with us but normally in instances like this I'll turn on the air conditioning and close things up. With things closed up even if they do bark you really don't hear them. With the air on it drowns out most of the outside noise so they don't hear anything to trigger them off. Since the dogs don't get out in the morning until 8 hours of overnight, I can trust them to hang on till we get back. Looks like I'm figuring 6-7 hours of being gone. You could always depart back earlier if you want.

Jack

Thumbs up Drummond Is.

We have never been to Drummond Is. ( native Michiganians = ) but have always thought we'd go there "one of these days". And such a lovely invitation - gracious indeed!! We are very much interested in going, please put us (2) down on the list. It sounds like a wonderful opportunity to see the island in a special way. Either day is fine.

Now, please clue me in on Dr. C. I'm guessing he's an A/S devotee as well?? I'm feeling like there is something here I should know but don't.

Suz, our connection with Dr. C., was interesting in its own right. He has a keen sense of humor and pulled most of our chains. Here is the thread that introduced him to us all.
http://www.airforums.com/forum...ight=drcharles

Don't get discouraged by the first few post. Everything comes out in the end as your read on.

Thanks for your come back. I'll add you all to the count.

Regards,

Jack

Latest weather forecast for the next 10 days at Mackinaw City. Looks like Tuesday may be the only iffy day of the week. Great temps!

Jack and all,

Some would say that the summer here in Michigan has been yucky so far, but if you're coming from a very hot place right now, the weather couldn't be better. Cool nights, pleasant days. Be warned, up at Mackinaw the nights can be VERY cool unless the weather turns for a hot spell. Bring fleece, build a campfire, and eat a pastie (if you've never been up that way, don't freak out, they don't involve exotic dancers!).

We'll see you up there Wednesday night!

John

This rally sounds like it's going to be a grand affair. The weather looks great for camping, and your week's plans sound like fun. The added bonus of the invitation from Dr. C puts you over the top! I'm purely green with envy--to meet one of our most enjoyable forum writers and to tour his home and the island as well! Have a great time and know that we'll all be thinking about you and looking forward to the reports after (or during!).
