MichaelB is correct - a car does not include passengers. Each person is charged as a unique passenger in addition to the car.

You can't. They drive it on and all the cars are on the lower car deck and is not accessible by the passengers.

Thank-you
I guess I was tired. Just got back from the annual Menominee Tribe water walk (Wolf River), Pow Wow and Sturgeon Feast on the reservation.

The other option is the high speed ferry from Muskegon, MI to the port of Milwaukee. It's a few hours further south and drops you in downtown Milwaukee. Then I43 strait north to Door County. Something different and its a cool jet drive powered catamaran. 60-70mph. Save time? not really but its an experience. Chicago isn't that bad. All new roads....Take the I90 Skyway and it is little used. $4.50 toll. Beautiful skyline of Chicago can be seen.

Ferry miles shouldn't count as GPS based "driven" miles towards any best fuel economy consideration.
Driving the lake circumference as an alternative shouldn't 'increase' your distance from home to the fest for any long distance award consideration either.

Nice suggestion! High speed catamarans are a blast.

I live in Manitowoc and highly recommend the Badger if you need to cross the pond. If you do come through here, I suggest taking state hwy. 42 to Sturgeon Bay. It's a really nice, scenic drive that takes you through historic towns on the way.

Excellent! Thanks for the tip.

I hope you can make it to TDIFest.

I am looking forward to going to the fest. For me it is a fairly short drive from Sheboygan to Sturgeon Bay. This week, I will get the registration out of the way, if things go as planned for me. I don't know what day I will be there yet.

I'm thinking about taking the Wednesday morning trip on the Badger. I guess I should book soon before it sells out.
