Leave in the morning and then after stopping a few places on the trip across the UP and then lower Michigan, should arrive about 6pm or so. Looking forward to helping stuff the bags once I get settled if you need another set of hands. Just a little over 500 miles just in the state of Michigan.

A bunch of us are out at dinner in Depot Town. We'll be back around 9 - then on to goody bag stuffing!

Today has been a busy day. I need a nap.

Boost gauge finally in and working. Meeting rocketeer928 in the morning for breakfast and it's on to TDIFest via the great white north. Should be pulling in by 4pm tomorrow.

doing laundry and packing would be a good idea right now...
hoping to remember to post a quick pic in the morning with the pair of 03 platinum grays.

Praying for a smooth / uneventful ride...

I got in about 6pm EDT today - I split the drive over two days (spent last night in Madison, WI). On the return trip, considering taking 90 and 52 from Tomah back to Minneapolis.

Don't be scared! We don't bite.

Feel free to introduce yourselves and hang lend a hand if you want. If you'd rather relax and enjoy vacation, that's fine, too... But still introduce yourself.
