Biggie - let's call it a Great Lakes cruise with others invited (as always) Then we can submit for the record book.This may lack a little in the number of avs in attendence but it may set the record for a regional cruise both in time and avalanche seat miles per individual cruise, especially if the guinness people consider the round trip as a single cruise

Sure we can call it our unofficial regional! :love: :0:
Good idea! I don't think we will win any mileage awards because the East Coast Regional drew a pretty wide spread crowd. And I don't think we will touch 42 AVs... :cry:

But we will have fun!!! ;D

For the record: I tried to get a cabin at the KOA but they did not have any available for the whole week. I will try again later to see if anybody cancel their reservations and maybe I can still get a cabin.

If not I will just have to suffer at the Ramkota >:D

I have a one room
cabin at KOA. Will anyone else be there before the 21st?
I would love to stay an extra week but we have to get the relatives back home on the 22nd.
Anyone else stayed at a one room at KOA ? Will a one room be sufficient for 4 adults two kids and two dogs. Figuring on sleeping bags for the kids. If it's not to hot we will stay in the Av tent.

Later,
CT

Gee, can you turn that cabin over to me when you leave ;)

We should be getting in LATE on the 19th or early on the 20th.
I have been trying to get a cabin for a while now.

Just a reminder, Avialanche was thinking about going to Denver towards the end of this mini-event. His thread is HERE.

I let a few of the CO members know about it also, so maybe if any of you go down, you could GTG with them?!?

I guess a date would help, wouldn't it! I'm sorry we are going to miss you. Can you hold off your vacation for 3 weeks? We'd love it if you'd join us! ;) We mostly will be there from around July 20 to the 25th. Some there a little early, some leaving a little early. When you get back you could let us know if there's any bad road construction areas on I90, so we can plan a scenic detour!

OK everyone, I have some mileage info.
Gary, IN to Baraboo, WI 227 mi.
Baraboo, WI to Albert Lea, MN 219 miles.
Albert Lea, MN to Rapid City, SD 515 miles.
Albert Lea is at I90 and I35.

Baraboo, WI to Jackson, MN 304 miles
Jackson, MN to Rapid City, SD 435 miles.
Miniapolis/St Paul to Jackson 182 miles.
Jackson is at I90 and US71.

My original plan was to stop at Albert Lea, but it looks like a better 1/2 way is at Jackson. That will shorten Sunday's trip a little. jakom is looking into a place for all of us (IN, IL, WI members) to meet in Baraboo, so you all can come in on 90. Since Baraboo to Jackson is only 304 miles, I think we could easily meet in Baraboo around noon. That gives Northface plenty of time to get to us, and we should be able to get to Jackson by 6:00 pm, even with a lot of stops. BTW- I plan to stop about every 2 hours for 10 minutes, because I will have a big dog and 2 kids in the back seat. Mdz66 and Biggie will be meeting up with us here, and if we leave by 9:am, we should be to Rapid City by 5:00 pm. I plan on taking 2 days (Sat & Sun the 26 & 27) to head back(Yes, on I90!).

I'm sending this plan in an email to everyone on the list. If you don't get it, let me know!!!

WELL the days are counting down i really cant wait right now its not about the truck at all. Its all about getting out of Michigan. We are going to be ordering a flip-down monitor so i can play my playstation 2 in the truck on the way there. I am thinking about dropping the site because it seems like i get no respect and no i am not whinning i am stating a fact. From now on i will only be posting cruise stuff and in daves bar and grill.. i have lost all interest in this site due to some members on the board and they know who they are. thats all

We might bring the PS2. If you want, we can maybe share some games. And a few movies, too.

Jen,

Sounds like a plan. Let me see if I got it right.

Satruday 7-19-03 - Meet on Baraboo, WI at 12:00 P.M.
- Leave Baraboo, WI for Jackson, MN (get a hotel)

Sunday 7-20-03 - Leave Jackson, MN for Rapid City, SD

I will be there (Baraboo) by noon on saturday. maybe we can have lunch there as a way of waiting for the rest of the travelers to arrive. Let me know.

Only two more weeks and we will be on our way. Can't wait ;D ;D

I am trying to get a flag made for the trip. It will have the club logo. I know we are going to see many avalanches on the way to Rapid City, so we need some type of advertising for the club.

see you all there

David

I just got this info from jakom about a spot to meet in Baraboo...


...then the best spot would be the Mobil station (it's a very
large Mobil station) off exit 92. Just take exit 92 (Baraboo/Lake Delton) and stay towards the right as you get off. The Mobil station is on the right, you can't miss it. There is a McDonalds, Burger King, Subway, Culvers, Dennys, & a few other places to eat there also. There is a spot for your dogs too.

I90 and I94 are merged together at this point, so no matter which way you come, it should be OK.
