Wink Road Trip & Moderncamaro Members

I am planning on going back to Ill, WI & MI (upper and lower) to see some family as soon as work will allow. Hopefully this can happen in the next couple of weeks, I haven't had a vacation in a few years and now that I have finally received my Camaro I want to go before the weather gets chilly. Depending on how much time I can actually get away (shooting for 2wks to a month) depends on wether I can take the western route from Chicago to Eureka, if I do not get enough time, it will just be around lake Michigan and back to Arizona. The map is a little off, I will actually be going from Menominee, MI over the Mackinaw bridge to get to South Haven, MI. Here is a google map:

http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&sour...,39.331055&z=5

So, with all logistics aside, I was thinking of trying to stop and take pics with Moderncamaro menbers along the way. I know this will be a hit-and-miss thing if it happens at all, and I do not even have a date I will be leaving yet, but it would still be very cool to meet fellow menbers and post some pics after the whole trip. I will fill in more details as the trip gets closer. If anyone lives in any of the towns/cities along the route and knows of a hotel with secure parking let me know, I will sleep easier when passing through. Thanks!!

looks like you would be going right by Camaro Scotty /Newmans Chevrolet in Cedarburg, WI. You will also be going pretty close by me. I am new to the forum, but it would be kinda fun to have people in the area meet. I don't know anyone else with a new Camaro.

Yeah, I was thinking of stopping by Newman to see Scotty, I will be headin up the 43, even thinking of taking the old 41 way up just because I havent been on it since I was little & the 43 didn't exist. Who knows, I will post more to this string as I get closer to the vacation & try to set up meets!

If you come near Grand Rapids you have to stop and see me at Sparta Chevrolet! We are only about 15 minutes North of Grand Rapids.

Well, I finally have my dates set, I will be leaving Arizona on Wednesday 9-23-09 or Thursday 9-24-09 at the latest.
I will be in the Chicago area for the weekend, then going down to Wataga & Knoxville Ill for a few days (not on the map link above).
Back to Chicago by the 29th, up to South Haven MI for a few days, then up and over the bridge to Upper MI for the weekend of 10-3-09.
Cruse through WI and hit Chicago one more time before I head west to Eureka, CA for the weekend of 10-10-09, back in AZ by the 14th.
I am going to try to update the web site www.cheers*****.com (hit the camaro button for pics) with pics from the trip while I am on the road, depending on where I can get internet service. If you are along the route and want to meet up, just post it here. I will update this post as I drive through the country.

For people in ILL, MI, & WI I will post when I get in the Chicago area, I am so itchin for a GOOD pizza, dog & gyro. Anyone along the way up let me know, although most of NM will be at night, figure on leaving @ sundown well rested and try to get to Tulsa or OK City before I crash (hopefully not literal). My record is 28 hrs from Chicago to Phoenix, in my '87 RS, not trying to break it either, last time I made that much time the Texans sent the planes out.
