Well, it's not like you're gonna be driving up there one day and home the next...

I'm looking at around 12 hours one way from GVL, no big deal for all the fun I know I'm gonna have once I get there.

Leave at 7:00 a.m., be there by 7:00 p.m., NBD, but I'll prolly split it up into a two day trip and enjoy the drive.

Hey guys marauders were made to drive!

Don't worry about miles and hours think about the fun factory when you get there

A "young" guy like yourself? And one who runs around NYC with a tractor trailer? I would have though a ride in the "country" would be just what the doctor order?

I know for me it's a blast because when I stop I do not have 56 other people getting out.

However it is your call I completely understand. ON the road you will be missed Fly safe and I will see you at the meet!

Think some more--don't be so quick on the draw---its a long time till then--we need as many MM as possible----remember --that's what you wanted---hey--it was over 600 miles for me--I did it--I understand---you did a lot of 3 hr trips back and forth to do MV 9 and we appreciate it--I did some as well for my MV 8--not as many as you --but I understand---- give it time--we would love to see you in your MM--cause I want to be next to yours in line--Tom--

Wow, if I can't make this one something's really wrong.

If Detroit is the only Michigan city you've ever been to this trip will make you think you're in a whole different state. The Michigan west cost is a truly beautiful place.

It is double the price of the SS Badger & there is no entertainment, restaurant or bar. Only an hour more drive time which I don't mind - any excuse to drive my MM!!

Yes it is! Located on Lake Michigan. Its 2 hours from Chicago and 3 hours from Detroit. Indy is 3.5 hours. You can do NYC in a hard days drive. Atlanta is 14 hours. All drives I have made. Virginia Beach is also 14 hours. St Louis about 8 hours.

Grand Rapids is a good airport to fly into as Kalamazoo is another good one. Both are one hour away.

Are you sure it's 8 hours from St. Louis? Have you driven that route? Google map shows 6 1/2 hours, (390 miles). I guess there must be a slow down around Chicago/Gary. Anyway, map shows 10 hours (609 miles) from Springfield, MO.

Seriously thinking...........
