    Question Michigan Riders

    I'm riding Thursday early morning from Western Central Michigan and heading for Beemerville.
    Who is heading that way from Michigan, and maybe we can meet up and ride together?

    Which route?

    I'll be leaving either Wednesday night after work, if the campground will be open and available, or early Thursday morning. I'd be interested in hearing what route other people are taking. I'm considering a back route to Adrian, then down M-52 to Ohio 109 to 65 to Lima. Any other ideas, other than I-75?

    Sure, wouldn't mind at all. I guess I'm kind of on an "Outpost" here.

    Well... I-75 is probably the quickest route, but don't quote me on that.

    Where would be a good "Meeting Point"?

    If I were to come south and had the choice of 23 or 75, I would take 23. It is faster, and you avoid the downtown traffic and the annoying single lane of 75 right in detroit.
    I used to drive that a fair amount, and would rather come from the north on 23 than go thorugh town. Unless 23 in under construction and there are major delays.

    I cant say, since I havent been that way in quite a while.

    US 23 is a mess south of Flint.

    May I suggest picking up US 27 at Claire and running south to 223: thence SELY to Adrian, where you can pick up 52 south.

    There's some reconstuction south of Lansing, but on my daily commute it rarely slows me down.

    Whiplash-I will be leaving from Muskegon on Thursday. I haven't mapped out a route or departure time yet though.

    Route

    I have been thinking about the best route with the least problems.
    And taking US 31 down to Muskegon has crossed my mind. Maybe cutting over to Grand Rapids and meeting others, then taking US 131 down to IN.
    Basically the back road route throught IN to OH.
    This time of the year I 75 and US 23 are real busy and torn up, plus, Detroit is living hell.

    I will be headed down Wednesday from Lowell (near Grand Rapids) on Wednesday. The Spouse will be heading down on Friday, looking for someone to ride with as well.
    The camp area is supposed to be open if you are a volunteer for the ralley. I plan to work at the Oil Change Booth again.
