More from Detroit

Just saw this from TCT about traveling in Detroit. The really funny part is that it is absolutely true!

You need to know the following about Detroit.

1. First, you must learn to pronounce the city name. It's Deh-troit. NOT DEEtroit.
If you pronounce it DEE-Troit then we will assume you are from Toledo
and here for the country Music hoedown.
2. Forget the traffic rules you learned elsewhere. Detroit has its own version
of traffic rules... Hold on and pray!
3. The morning rush hour is from 6:00 am to 10:00 am. The evening rush
hour is from 3:00 pm to 7:00 pm. Friday's rush hour starts Thursday morning.
Weekends are open game.
4. If you actually stop at a yellow light, you will be rear-ended, cussed out and
possibly shot. If you're first off the starting line when the light turns green,
count to five before going across the intersection. This will avoid getting in the
way of cross-traffic who just ran their yellow light to keep from getting shot.
5. Construction and renovation on I-94, I-96, I-75, I-275, I-375, The Lodge
and The Southfield Freeways are a way of life and forever. Just deal with it.
6. If someone actually has their turn signal on, it is probably a factory defect
or they are "out-of-towners"
7. All old men (or women) with white hair wearing a hat have total right-ofway.
8. The minimum acceptable speed on I-696 and I-275 is 85 regardless of the
posted speeds. Anything less is considered downright SISSY. Oh, and don't
even think of allowing more than one car length between cars!
9. I-275 and I-696 are our daily version of NASCAR.
10. That's not a lake; it's a pothole.
11. The Michigan left turn is simple. If you want to turn left, go a 1/4 of a mile
past your turn, get to the left, then make a left, then make another left, then
make a right when you get back to the intersection where you wanted to turn
left in the first place. NOW you have gone left.

Oh, do not worry! Carol and I have a habit of finding hapless victims unaware of our plans to recruit them into the LPPI!
I also like to have people do "stuff" too! I really like it when people do "stuff" with "things"!

M-D Shakedown & TCT

Lorrie and I want to haul up to the Metro-Detroit Unit Shakedown Rally in Durand, sans Airstream (i.e. without Airstream in tow) for the day on Saturday and spend some time with all y'all, see the Train Station and have lunch there. Hope to see many of you there.

We are also considering the Tin Can Tourist's event in Milford. It should be really cool seeing all of those old trailers, if we do. It would be great if there was a good contingent of LPPI there.

I have the same game plan as Joe. Daytripping to the luncheon at the depot if I can, then camping out at the TCT rally. Then we should all head on over to the LPPI rally and we will be set!

In r/t the camps close to ohio, when we got our trailer we took it to a camp ground that was fairly new right off I75 and accross from the outlet mall , on our way back I thought we saw another campground off 75 ??? Of course my brain cannot think of the names of these campgrounds
Were ya thinking of campgrounds around there Lou?

Michigan side?

Are you thinking the Michigan side? or Ohio side? There are several campgrounds in the Toledo area, but we have not stayed at any of them. What dates are we thinking?

Andy,
As noted earlier in this string, Lorrie and I plan to attended the Train Station Tour and Luncheon. The check for those events went in the mail to you today. We will hopefully have some time to spend with you guys at the Campground either before or after the Train Station, but alas we will only be visiting for the day on Saturday, without the Airstream in tow. But it still should be a good time.

I was actually thinking of some of the ones off of US-23. Down by Dundee.
There was the one that was the second choice for last year's rally; Totem Pole Campground. They have a "cul de sac" that they said we could have if we want to be "by ourselves". This way we would not be disturbing anyone when we have our two "LPPI Officers Meeting" that correspond with the Friday and Saturday night campfires!

Just in case you wanted other ideas, what about campgrounds in the Irish Hills? Say near Cement City or something? I don't have by campground guide handy, so I'll have to get back with CG's, but it's a nice scenic area, close to the border, and it has a Mystery Spot! (Also good antique shops)

Just would need to avoid a race weekend.

John

Irish Hills

We were supposed to have an impromptu Forums rally last fall. Lou and family ended up having to cancel, and almost everyone else had something come up. But Larry and I met up with the Smiths there last fall, and camped at a small private campground, just down the road from the race track, and state park. It was called Ja-Do. Nice, small, and less expensive than the park. As we remember, at that time the park only had electric at the sites, but somebody mentioned that it may have changed by now. You can google Irish Hills and Ja-Do. I believe they have a website.
Lou and Larry.

I was thinking about the same thing...

I would love to try Ja-Do this year.
I guess they have an area that is pretty secluded and we could probably get it all to ourselves if there is enough of us.
What do you guys think?
I talked to the owners, via phone, last fall. They seem like wonderful people.
I do know that I am planning on going to Covenant Hills at least once this year as well. We went back last Labor Day and the girls had a blast. It is a very nice and quiet campground. Until we all got there!
