And I made it to Detroit! Very very windy, and I'm VERY grateful that Kirk towed from London to Port Huron.

But I didn't do anything horribly wrong! Yay! Tomorrow's supposed to be warmer, thank goodness.

Flying Solo

There's a short video of Zlee piloting her new Bambi on the highway in Port Huron, MI, posted on Can-Am RV's Facebook Page. I don't have the means of getting it from there to here but if you're on Facebook then you can search for Can-Am RV Centre (note the spelling!). Failing that, it was taken and published by Kirk Thompson, one of Can-Am's co-owners and it's on his Facebook page, too.

Zlee's looking good, Jetta, Bambino and all.

Had a wonderful evening playing tunes with my friends near Detroit. (Due to parking regs in their town, they found a church parking lot for me to leave the Bambino, poor lonely thing!)

After breakfast, I'll be taking off in the direction of Flint to meet Mellen60 for lunch!

Excellent! I hope Mellen60 convinces you to come back for the Michigan "Under the Bridge" rally in August!

Safe travels,
Nancy Mac

On my way to Lansing after meeting up with Mellon -- let me tell you something, folks -- if Mellon ever decided to rule the world, she'd have it done within the year! Fantastic time meeting up. Hope to hit Chicago late tonight!

Chicago! Mellen thought it was a good idea to go in the evening, so I did, and it was a doddle.

I'm glad you made it there ok! Are going to be there for a few days? How's Bambi doing? It's going to be in the 50s this week and rain on Friday but I think you picked a great week to travel.

It's true, although we didn't think so as we sat in the Bambino with Zlee on Sunday with the snow coming down at quite a rate :~)
