    Any Interest In a WI to MI Ferry Ride for MV10?

    A few folks have expressed interest in doing this prior to Marauderville 10, so I thought I'd start a separate thread to start tracking and coordinating.

    There are two options:

    The SS Badger, departing from Manitowoc, WI and arriving in Ludington, MI http://www.ssbadger.com/home.aspx

    and

    The Lake Express, departing from Milwaukee, WI and arriving in Muskegon, MI http://www.lake-express.com/

    My personal preference would be the SS Badger as it's got some nice amenities on board, it's a bit cheaper, and with the departure time, we could probably set up a convenient rendezvous time and maybe do some stuff in the morning prior to boarding the ferry.

    Terry and I are considering a Tuesday crossing and stay over in Ludington on Tuesday night with a leisurely drive and sightseeing down the coast to South Haven on Wednesday, but that said, we're flexible on dates.

    In any case, I'm willing to set up a group event if there's enough interest. If we can get a group of 15 or more people, there are group discounts available.

    Post up your thoughts and comments.

    Will this cut down on my drive? Is this a "short cut"?

    I may be up for this, though I would prefer the ride from Milwaukee, little shorter drive. How close does this land us to South Haven?

    Yeah, the Lake Express lands at Muskegon, which is closer. Ludington is about 2 hours north of South Haven.

    Either one will work for us as we'll be spending the week before MV in Wisconsin. Prolly head over from the Wausau area, so Manitowoc would be a little closer than Milwaukee.

    If you are coming from east it would be way out of your way. For me (middle IL/WI border), the actual driven miles is about the same as going around bottom of lake, driven time is less missing ChiTown traffic. Benefit is in middle of drive to take ferry is small adventure of something new, scenic and turns the trip into an extra day of vacation. If weather cooperates, I'll be doing it.

    If the weather doesn't cooperate, it WILL be an adventure!
