As of now, we plan to book for Tuesday evening. Otherwise, it would be Wednesday morning. Still waiting until we get a bit closer to finalize.

It's a tough call. On the evening trip, you should be able to see some amazing night skies, but on the day trip, you get some great views.

We didn't expect to see much due to the size of the Lake. Might have to think about it.

You get the coming and going views, plus they lay on the horns when you come into port during the day. Everyone loves ship horns, right?

I've heard the night time trip can be absolutely stunning if there are clear skies. Like is said, it's a tough choice.

I just booked my trip for Wednesday morning at 8:30 AM. Looking forward to it! Now to figure out how to work my schedule so that I'm arriving at the ferry terminal in Ludington at 7:30 AM ... looks like a night time drive is in my future!

I thought about doing Tuesday PM to get some good night sky viewing, but opted for the day crossing on Wednesday since I plan to spend a night in the UP after Fest. That should provide some awesome stargazing.

We are considering driving home the long way via Canada.

If you mean around the north, then east side of Lake Huron, there will be a couple of us driving that way on the way there, so you can get some road reports.

I think a trip around Lake Superior will wait for next year.

For those of you who won't take the Badger, Interstate 43 North of Sheboygan near Manitowoc is having resurfacing done this week, which I anticipate to be completed before the fest. It will be butter smooth (Just ignore the bumpy part in Northern Ozaukee County)!

Cool! I made it to Drew's house at around 5pm. We are planning to hit the road towards the Badger at midnight. See you all tomorrow afternoon!
