    It looks like Saturday might be chilly with rain a couple times during the day and in the evening. I plan to be up at 9 am for breakfast, then M22 and some Bellaire and East Jordan area roads. If the weather is too nasty I may substitute a bit of riding with beer drinking. I hope everyone is down with that ... cuz I am! :drink

    Looks like I will be up there about 6 PM-ish on the silver ST1300, if anyone wants to get together for dinner.

    Will there be a camp fire or indoor place to warm up? I dont have the best cold weather gear and the 135 mile drive from GR will leave me freezing by the time I arrive.

    They've been pretty good about supplying firewood to our group in the past, so if that holds true this year, we'll get a fire going for ya.

    I just set up camp by the big red balls!
    There is no firewood on site right now but I will go round up a trailer load today. But first I am on a more important mission, Beer!

    There's a pavilion if things get wet ... we'll have at least one fire going for sure.

    Ok - this is hard to believe but true! I'm riding into Interlochen today and, out of the 2,000+ songs in my phone (being bluetoothed to my helmet) what do you suppose came on? Usher's "U Turn"

    To understand the irony of this, check out this video from one of our Cycle Moore outings a couple years back...
