2014 Northern Michigan Adventure Rally

Let's do this.

June 20-22.

Fire roads, ORV trails, and lots of sand.

Location - Thompsonville MI - Campsite TBD. Hopefully Wild Bill is open to hosting us. We'll leave this open for now - I'll start making calls.

Let me know if you're in.

Beer will be provided by Wolverine Brewing of Ann Arbor.

-acs

Thumbs down

I just got the bike out of the basement today and put 90 miles on it. This event was always lots of fun but I have prior engagements on that weekend. If you decided to move it to the weekend before or after I would certainly be in but that weekend is a no go for me.

Nice - riding season I'd finally here. I don't expect this event to be the badass party that Ryan puts on. Just riding and having good times in the evenings.

In terms of a date, I just chose a weekend that works for a group of friends.

I'd propose that this be a multi-weekend event where people show up when it's convenient for them.

Any suggestions on a campground? I'm thinking a State Forest Campground like Schecks: http://www.michigandnr.com/parksandt...=583&type=SFCG

A good standby is Wild Bill's since it is definitely connected to the trail system.
