I just had two more rooms added to our block. 251, you should be able to make your reservation. If you end up splitting a room with someone, that's fine, too.

Thanks for arranging to add more rooms. I'll make a reservation this evening. Can make an adjustment if someone wants to share a room. Also filled out the survey.

I'm in!

I can put a few people up for the night on the eastside of Detroit if needed.

This has historically been a non wrenching G2G but I've got a lift if someone has a small issue they'd like to address.

One more hotel room left. Our room block expires next Tuesday, December 19th.

This month is flying by quickly.

Hi all!

I’m considering a schedule change for this year. Rather than doing go karting again, I thought it would be nice to take a group trip to The Henry Ford Museum. There is a Buddy’s Pizza just around the corner so we can plan to get lunch there, followed by a trip to the museum.

Thoughts? I know several people mentioned interested in the museum in previous years, but I think there are still quite a few people who haven’t been.

Perhaps go karting could be incorporated into Sunday since several people won’t be heading home until Monday.

I would prefer the karts. The Ford museum would be fine to.

Yeah, I'd prefer karting as well, but to be fair, I have been to the museum.

Honestly I'd be happy doing either.

And I just ordered snows for the '15 GSW. Now it's certain not to snow!

The Henry Ford or karting, I'm in either way.

My snow tires are poised waiting. If I put them on, it for sure will not snow [here]. So I am waiting until the last minute. Speaking of which, not even sure yet which car I am going to drive up there.

Decisions, decisions...

I have never been to the museum and would like to go. But I will gladly stuff my fat ass in a cart to be a rolling road block for the faster folks, too.

If I've been to the Henry Ford it was years ago when I was a little kid and don't recall the place.

Know we only have the afternoon for this. Personally I'd be most interested in the Ford Rouge Factory Tour - last tour leaves at 3:00pm and they suggest allowing for 3 hours minimum - 2 hours for self-guided tour, 1 hour for bus ride to/from the Rouge from the Henry Ford Museum:

https://www.thehenryford.org/visit/f...-factory-tour/

How do the rest of you feel about the Rouge tour over the museum or carting? But again I'll go along with whatever the majority decides.

That's an interesting idea, Robert! Having never been to an automobile factory, I'd be up for that.

Thoughts from the group? Let's narrow it down to the River Rouge Factory Tour or The Henry Ford Museum.
