I am hoping to go...and if I do I would love to convoy. Unfortunately I am on the western side of the state....so I would be hooking up as you are an hour away from the state line on I-94. I will let you know as soon as I can clear my schedule.

We're lookin at a 6hr or so cruze

According to Mapquest

Quote:
Total Est. Time: 6 hours, 49 minutes Total Est. Distance: 426.31 miles
Not bad at all, it will take me 3 hrs to get to Port Huron (save crossing the border). Maybe we can set something up...I will love to roll there with you guys and maybe even have some other MI members meet up with us.

Thanks for all the great feedback!

I will have to ask my dad. He is in Chicago right now. A district manager for mejier, he'* been driving to chicago for the last 3 weeks for meetings! I'm sure he will know the quickest way. I'm thinking he said 4 hrs to chicago from my house which is 1-12hrs from port huron. I know ive drove to Chicago before for hockey tournemants but it was like 5-1/2 hrs on a bus.

He is at some drag day in Grand Rapids right now... i'm pretty sure he doesnt mind the drive. I need to get my car ready. I still need a passenger side mirrior. and im still debating on buying the springs off domestic performance. What do you think about those?
