Hey SJ,

Is the below still the plan? What time you guys leaving your area? Looks like the quickest is to run 70 out to 76 and then head over and up via I80/90/280 around Toledo then US 23 north and then west over to the campground. If I leave Annapolis about the same time as you, I should hit 70 within 10-15 minutes of you guys.

Saturday 7/20 - Trailer to Evart MI. 680 miles. Plan on a very early start Sat morning as with fuel stops, stops for lunch and dinner and a stop to procure supplies, we are probably talking about 13 hours on the road and I would like to get to the campground before O-dark thirty as its first come first serve. Camping will be at Sun Rise Lake camp ground. Primitive camping - vault toilet, no showers.

Yup, that's the plan. I gotta find time to sit down with the GPS and finalize everything but I am thinking to roll wheels from the Frederick area like 6 am. If you are coming from Annapolis, you could just meet us at one of the two rally points (J-Sr's in Mt. Airy or Bucho's in Middletown). Will you have room for a guy in your truck? How about a bike in your truck? I understand your are not coming back the same way we are. I updated the first page with the current attendees. Looks like 4 in Jay's truck and 5 in the cube. I will send out everyone's rally assignments shortly once I noodle on the logistics. Everyone should look for an email from here out as I think its best to take this off line for further planning and simplification...

Looking good for Sunday at Evart. 40% scattered thundershowers and low 80's. Keeping it cool! STOKED!

That looks epic....just enough damp stuff to cut some dust and cool enough that Bill will not need to break out his "Butter Boy"
