Looks like a good time was had by all. Did anyone do a count on the total number of AVs and members attending?
Also did any GM or Chevy officials show up to see the mods and love for the AV?

Over 20 AV's and too many peeps to count!  (y)

Made a couple of detours sightseeing, but made it home about twenty minutes ago, uneventful except for the big Buck Deer that ran across the road in front of us just south of Grand Haven.  Whoooaaaaa baby!  He made it and we didit to, lol.

Did you go to the Cherry Reserve (I think that is what it was called) in Grand Haven???

They had some killer Chocolate/Chili Covered Dry Cherries.

Not to mention the wines and sodas, Oh and the Jellies, Jams, candy and of course the candy covered ones.

Sorry I didn't make it, my IP cluster will be back Wednesday.
I will make it to the Woodward Dream Cruise this month  :drive: 

The photo of the Chinese Wood Snake sunning on the hunk of driftwood cracked me up.
We don't have any bright yellow snakes in Michigan that I've ever seen.

Made it to Mobile, AL last night after driving straight for over 1,000 miles...needless to say we are pooped!  Had a great time, enjoyed meeting "yall" and all the activities.  Our grand daughter had a wonderful time, too.  Thanks for everything you guys did to make this trip so memorable.

The Cruise Coordinators do this. If you look at BigC Mich post you will see a Gold bowtie with CC in it. But if you want to do something like this I'm sure a Cruise Coordinators  in your area will help you.  (y)

PS you may want to try a local get together first, doing something this big is a lot of work.
