    Ryan, do you have site numbers for us to find the group yet? On the other hand, I guess with our arrival late Friday we could just look for all the bikes.

    I got to ride some of the trails around and into the campground today and I was surprised how much of the storm damage was cleared out.
    It looks like there is a big pile of firewood next to our campsite already!:clap
    The trails are fantastic considering how many bad storms we had in the last 6 months. Some of my favorite spots have been logged and closed off:cry
    but the power line is still as challenging as ever!
    I plan on bringing at least 2 canoes if anyone wants to go for a float this year.
    See you guys next week!

    Thanks Doug, if you are bringing some extra chairs then I won't lug my lawn chair around on the bike. Just a little less weight will help. :D

    Me too, but I saw some folks headed back south, presumably, from this event. Passed them on I-196 between Hudsonville and Zeeland. There was an FJ40 (?) in the group with "Nomadic Adventure" on the side, another cage pulling a KTM and a BMW. Leading the group was a young lady on a GS.

    Was flying home from Charlie's retirement party and NOT dressed for the weather. :cry No wet crotch though. :D

    Yeah that was us, FJ40 was actually a Land Rover Defender 90 (Ryan) with the Nomadic Equipment Decal. FJ Cruiser pulling the KTM and BMW. Wife's (Kim) shift to drive for a couple hours before I took over again and got into Chi traffic. Had a blast! Ryan Long really knows how to put on a rally! Top Notch!

    But George was the unofficial official photog. I hope someone will post the non-incriminating ones soon. Something about a roost-fest in the campground, whatever that is.
