Rausch Creek Travel Planning

So with the Michigan/Jersey Crew, Rausch Creek weekend two weeks out. I think it's time to start planing our road trip east.

What are people thinking? My first plan was to travel out Friday, wheel Saturday/Sunday, drive home Monday.

Some have suggested traveling Friday after work to save a vacation day.

I can't wait for RC!!!!!

I'm leaving Windsor right from work Friday night and headed straight to RC. I'll be there late but I'll get there. Wheel all day Saturday and party like it's 1999 after.

I posted this on the run thread if you guys didn't see it yet. Guessing it would effect you guys more coming from the west. It might be more south then your route though. It will be a mess there for a while.



Here's some important info from Rausch's Facebook page:


http://www.abc27.com/story/22211936/...-road-closures

This will affect anyone coming north to the park on 81. May also make other highways a nightmare so add extra time if you're coming up 83.

FFFFFFFFFFFFFFuuuuuuck. That's right where I need to drop south on my Florida trip.
Balls.


Edit: looks like you can still hop on 81South coming from the east?

Hey! Get outta here. You're not even going. And it's pointless to just bring a trailer for him.

Rausch Creek Travel Planning

I was really hoping to make this trip, unfortunately my heep is still in pieces. At this pace I'll be lucky to have it ready by our club's fall trip.

Speaking of trailers though...

A buddy of mine just finished this trailer build:









Has 3 deep cycle batteries, 1600W inverter, 20 gallon water tank, and 16k btu heater. Sweet.

Sorry for the thread derail, I'm just jealous as hell I can't make it and wanted to share something cool. They'll all be at RC next week through the weekend.

Cool trailer. Cooler rig inside of it!
This was the one they were referring to. And I do think it's a waste to drag it down for just myself. I'll leave it in the garage. I was going to give it a coat of paint to get rid of the gawdawful hummer yellow color.

Hmmm...Beer!!!

I could leave my house at 8ish also. As far as meeting place...I could suggest Horizon Outlet Center of Monroe on I75 Exit 11 (about 8.8 miles south of I275/I75 intersection). My drive from my house would take me about 50 - 60 mins to get there. Let me know what you guys think as far as time/meeting area.

That sounds like a good spot. So address for GPS:

14500 Laplaisance Rd
Monroe‎ Michigan‎ 48161
United States

Google says it will take me just over an hour.
