You havent made a tour yet. Your opinion on travel time is invalid, sir.

I'd never do it if I had to drive, I tried to see if I could passenger but nobody answered so I didn't bother trying to request off work.

I'm down with a cruise, but to spend 6hrs driving a car is just about the most boring thing I could ever think of. Especially for at least 8hrs in any direction from here. After that the driving could be more fun, but here, driving is boring AF.

I dont think anyone found any of the roads this trip to be boring? We still had plenty of fun on the highway portions.

We used to implement a soft goal of no more than 400mi / day. Pretty much everyone is done at 400mi.

I think the Traverse City-Escanaba route was just under 300mi so yes.

Agreed. It was just at the edge of being too much, but we had a lot of ground to cover. I'd like to have had more time to spend hanging out at nights but no complaints. Personally, I'm good with leaving earlier than 9:30-10:00

Key to this is having everyone at ONE HOTEL. If anything can be criticized, it was being spread out at different hotels for 2 nights.

I gave everyone MORE than enough notice on hotels. RRi was probably the wrong choice on my part

Not suggesting there was inadequate time provided, just saying, we should honestly consider getting a block of rooms so everyone can stay together. I know thats tough with so many people dropping last minute... but we really gotta keep people at the same hotel. The night time partying is where its at!

And YEAH, RRI was a fucking miserable choice with THREE brand new hotels JUST down the street.

We got a block for the final night, so that worked out at least.

And Traverse was difficult b/c everything was booked months in advance and expensive.

But I agree (as I have every year) that being at the same hotel every night is clutch.

We need pools like Escanaba every night.

Nothing else matters, and go

Agreed.

With how much fun the roads are and cruising in the group with the chatter on the walkies, the drives FLEW by.

Nothing like setting the cruise on some remote interstate and slowly dying.

Yup with all the turns and traffic and such the drives were nice.

Starting earlier would be nice as it might equal out the day at bit more. Like if we are doing <7 hours of driving it would be nice to do 3 in the am and 4 after lunch, give or take.... Being at the hotel by 6 is good.

Agreed, but people like to sleep their party off a little too... Trying to keep everyone happy with the latter start times.

Party earlier? Pools close at 11, stop then and go to bed. I know pube free parking lot pizza is great, but I think that is something people can just replicate in their driveway?

Now now, I know I've seen you and Heather partaking in the parking lot parties of the past. Folks have fun at night because they can drink, loosen up and act a fool without having to climb into their car until the morning. You can't really reproduce that in your driveway with friends either, cuz they need to go home.

Besides, why are you trying to leave earlier in any event, if it's not to get to the hotel earlier and have more evening for dinner, drinks, pool and parking lot hangout time?

PS - panties.

You misunderstand me sir...

I was merely saying you could replicate eating pube free pizza off of your driveway.

I am saying that the parties don't need to go as late, not to get rid of them.

The parties are essential.
