Pete & Maggie - St. Louis, MO

At this point the plan is to ride up.  As long as our health stays in order and weather permits.

We will make it a few days trip following the Mississippi River up then over to Minocqua

I'm in. I'll take the long way, crossing into the U.P. because I love scaring myself crossing the Big Mac Bridge. The Fort de Buade museum in St.Ignace(north side of the bridge) has an ancient rune stone, the Newberry Tablet, in their possession that I'd like to see. I've been in the town before, but never knew they had this runestone.  
 I hope to do a side trip in Minocqua to the Northern Waters Distillery. They have free sampling!!!

Well I'm seriously considering making the trek up to Wisconsin for my very first Maxi-Scoot meetup. My stuggle is that where I work the Annual Leave is portioned out accordinng to length of service with the company. So until a month or two from now I won't know if I can get that specific week off. So I'm stuck in the on-deck circle until then.

UPDATE......

Awesome news.... my boss has given me special leave so it's confirmed that I have the time off, and the trip is a GO!!!

I'm going to make the trip an adventure. Here's my route from Toronto..... up thru Sudbury (which has the world's largest nickel), the Sault, then all the way around Lake Superior thru Thunder Bay and Deluth. LOL.... life's an adventure!!!

I'll plan a more conventional route back to Toronto via the Mackinac Bridge.

Looking forward to finally meeting y'all.
Steve

Two months to go.  I counted 21 so far.  When are people headed out?  What direction are you coming from? Will you be coming through Chicago or try and go around it.  I would suggest I294 north to WI.  Better than the heart of the city unless you plan on visiting the city itself.

We plan on heading out on Saturday the 2nd.  I have a friend in Butternut, WI about 50 miles from Minocqua.  We want to get up to Duluth as well.  Looking forward to seeing you all.

I'm going to pull the camper up there Monday & probably come back for the bikes on Tuesday. Not good to Travel south on any HWY here on Labor day.


Title: Re: Roll Call
Post by: Steve_YYZ on July 10, 2017, 01:29:14 AM
I'm leaving Toronto the Sunday of Labour Day weekend......
Sunday = Toronto to Sault Ste Marie, 685 km
Monday = Sault Ste Marie to Thunder Bay, 760 km
Tuesday = Thunder Bay to Minocqua, 579 km
Total to get there                            2024 km (1257 miles for my US friends)

Thanks, Canada friend.  Hope your weather is good and be safe. 
This is one Rally we can get there in a day.  But we will leave on Saturday and get up to see a friend and get into Duluth.

I'm across the pond(Lake Ontario) from Steve so We'll see who has the shorter trip there. I plan on going through the states.

Oh there's lots of shorter routes but that's not my style. I'm out for an adventure so am purposely taking the long way around the Big "Gitche Gumee".
Coming back I'm crossing at Mackinac then all the way straight down to Dayton OH to spend a day at the US Air Force Museum at Wright Patterson. Then across to Pittsburg and back up thru the Alleghenny forest to Beefalo!!!

I just checked the average nighttime temperatures for early September and wimped out and made motel reservations. Riding to Ludington, MI and taking the ferry to WI.
See everyone in Minocqua

I'll also be there "sometime" on Tuesday afternoon (late). Does anyone know what time zone Minocqua is in? I'll be crossing from Eastern to Central when I come around the west end of Lake Superior, but does it change back before Minocqua or is it still in Central Time Zone?
I'm clock challenged!  :rofl:

Do you think there's still room for a couple of Canuk alumni and a couple of first timers?   :cflag2:

Karin and I cleared the vacation time off hurdle and have booked into Patricia Lake Campgrounds for the entire week (Sep 3-10th).

Plus, we're caravaning with Karin's brother pulling his brand new Travel Trailer and possibly accompanied by another one of my B-I-L's riding his motorcycle.

Thanks a bunch!  Hopefully no road side rescues or emergency rural lunch deliveries needed this time out. :thanks:  Actually I thought we did pretty well last year in Marion VA with no high speed blowout situations for either Karin or me.

Hey Carol, we were out for this year's meet up but our circumstances changed for the better freeing up the time to attend.  YAY!

Hi Lew - we're camping on site F9 and my B-I-L is on site F3.   Looking forward to seeing y'all again.

I'm sure that I have to work tomorrow, but I think that I can leave tomorrow night and get there late Thursday night.  I'm sure that I'll get up there after everyone's gone to sleep.  So I was hoping that I could confirm the location for meeting on Friday morning.  Is it still the same gas station lot that it says in the Thursday ride section?  I thought i saw something that was changing the Thursday ride.  If I hear nothing I'll just probably show up and hope for the best.  Three hundred miles each way isn't such a big deal.  It's just that if they include miles through Chicago it's kind of like "Dog Years" one Chicago mile tires the rider like ten rural miles.
