There is the high speed ferry from muskegon, MI to the port of milwaukee as well. 60+ miles per hour. Huge catamaran. They have an adults only lounge as well for a few dollars more. drops you about 2 hours south of Door County.

I seriously considered the Ferries but between the price and the extra scheduling and time constraints I would rather drive north around the lake.

Here are links for easy reference:

Why not shoot across the north side of Lake Huron too? That would be a nice drive.

( I know it is a lot shorter to use the Blue Water Bridge)

That is my plan exactly: take the far north route!

Weird thing is that hanging a giant right turn around Lake Huron and Georgian bay only takes an extra hour and twenty minutes according to Google Maps. Neat!

Saulte Ste Marie Route: 1259 km (13h 18m) https://www.google.ca/maps/dir/Water...44.8242679!3e0

vs

Blue water bridge Route: 1205 km (11h 56m) https://www.google.ca/maps/dir/Water...44.8242679!3e0

I love Google Maps.

that does not look too bad. for me, it is a little further out of the way. say four hours.

Option B if you want to see Niagara falls
Option A or perhaps a more southern route for the way back home.

It is all right here: http://wiki.tdifest.com/doku.php?id=...art&redirect=1

Friday night's "Meet and Greet", Saturday's breakfast, and Sunday's Awards banquet are optional meals that you can sign up for when you do your Fest registration. I just checked, and the registration page isn't up yet.
