Bill (and others),
At this time I'm VERY
hesitant about making this trip an 'official' ride. I am currently not working and if I manage to find a job by summer the trip will be off, as I wouldn't have any vacation time (Holiday for you Canadians) available. Also, my preliminary plotting has me not driving more than 5 hours on any day, for various reasons.
My schedule at this time.
Day 1: Leave Detroit and drive to Port Elgin, ON., where we will visit with some good Kappa friends. (4 hrs, 188 miles)
DAy 2: Leave Port Elgin and drive to Manitowaning, which is on Manitoulin Island. Also includes ferry time. (4 1/4 hrs, 124 miles)
DAy 3: Drive from Manitowaning to Sault Ste Marie, MI. Either check out the locks this day or the next. (4 3/4 hours, 206 miles)
DAy 4: Drive from Sault Ste Marie to Black River, MI., where we have a family cabin available. Not sure how long we'd stay there yet (3 1/2 hours, 174 miles)
Final Day: Drive from Black River back to Warren, MI (4 1/4 hours, 221 miles.
Right now thinking about the first or second week of July.
