    I should also mention that a Canadian Ojibwa sub will be on display near the rally. Certainly worth the ride.

    ABC Weekend Weather

    The weather this weekend for our rally is forecast for sunny skies with temperatures in the high 60s and low 70s. Looks like perfect weather for camping.

    If you should be coming from across the border, and need a bottle of liquor, buy it stateside as our liquor stores, not beer stores, will be on strike.

    Hope to see some new rally goer's there!

    Bob from Pennsylvania arrived this morning with his granddaughter and Ron from Ohio pulled into the driveway this afternoon. We'll start the setup tomorrow at noon and will be ready for everyone who shows up by 4:30ish tomorrow afternoon. Marty should be arriving from Florida tonight.

    Looking forward to seeing lots of rally-goers this picture perfect weekend!

    Just a reminder, the ABC Rally is a only a two hour ride from Detroit, or from Buffalo, or from Port Huron, or from Toronto. The ABC Rally is just a short ride from most locations in the north east/central area. We're leaving this morning to have everything setup for riders this afternoon. See you there!

    Two years in a row!

    Thanks to the Forest City gang for another steller performance at a great location with superb weather AGAIN!. Grand to see everyone and spend a few nights around the campfire and in the tent but truth be told, I'd show up if only for the BEANS!

    BTW...I think Kevin The Bald's new hairstyle is catching?

    Another view of the school house, where food is prepared. Sometimes if the weather should not be the greatest, campers will sometimes spend the night inside the old building.
