    Jerry, wanted to let you know that we have signed up for the Michigan Rally. The lady I talked to didn't give me a site # yet. She wanted to make sure of the number coming so we didn't get moved around. See you then.

    Saundra and I are in TC for a couple of days. We drove over to the campground and I was planning to make a reservation. However, I changed my mind for three reasons
    1. Campground needs a 2 day deposit for making a reservation - $104 ($52 x 2)
    2. Campground will take a $15 charge for canceling a reservation from today up to 15 days before the reservation begins - they will take the entire amount if the cancellation is made within the 15 day period prior to the date the reservation starts - $104 is a pretty steep penalty.
    3. Campground is holding a block of lots until 6/19/17.

    So, rather than taking a chance on health causing a cancellation, or equipment failure (God forbid), I will wait until next June before making our reservation.

    BTW - cabins are available for $119/night, if anyone is interested in this option - at least that is today's price. Not sure if this is an off-season rate.

    I understand Chuck. Unfortunately in busy areas like TC they seem to have higher deposit and cancellation fees. Keep an eye on the attendance.

    Just like buying a lottery ticket, pay your money and take your chances.
    We spent 10 days there last July, & loved it.
    Stayed over at Indigo Blue RV park a couple of times near Glen Arbor.
    For those who have not been to this area here are a few ideas you can check out.
    There are a lot of Wineries in this area & also M22, the most scenic Highway in America.
    Get over to Glen Arbor and Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore.
    Boone's Restaurant is another favorite.
    Fishtown in Leland is also a great place to visit.
    We did a lot of these when we had the Rally at Wild Cherry Resort a few years back.

    I agree Gary. I have been to all you mentioned and others. The M-22 drive and little towns along the way are well worth the visit. There is also Mission Peninsula with more wineries and beautiful views of the bays. And Boons for a steak is a great idea for a pre-rally meal. a little pricy but oh so worth it.
