Last spring in Kokomo we talked a little about coming to southern Michigan for our spring gathering. Patty and I have been kicking it around and here's what we came up with so far. There's a little town on the Lake Michigan coast called Saugatuck. Its a very artsy town with lots of restaurants and shops. Also has a couple of beautiful beaches for picnic, etc. If interested we could also take a cruise to a really cool car museum, Gilmore not too far away. It would be nice to have it in late spring say May where we have a better chance of warm weather. I used Indianapolis as a distance reference and its only 216 mi.
 
So let me know what ya'll think. Interest, ideas, etc. Thanks, Terry & Patty

Dskopp- you could take the boat across if it's still running.   I would be interested in taking the tribe sans the vette.  Make sure to wear pink pants and shirtsWinkWink. It's very happy out there.
 
Super cool views and nice places to go out there.

I live near and work in Grand Rapids Marshall. But you ain't seen Michigan til you have seen the beaches. When and if get enough response I will post a poll to see what ya'll think about the date. Plenty of time to plan. "T"

So far it looks like around 15 people interested. Enough to run with it I would say. I know its early to plan, but I figure around first of the year we will start making definite plans. We are taking a color tour with some locals in that area to scope out motels, restaurants, etc. I will try to keep bringing this thread to the top to keep the interest and ideas going. "T"

Dune rides are the bomb.  It's been a few years for me but super fast and fun entertainment.
