Trip was great weather was great.

Day 1 Winnipeg to Ironwood MI

Day 2 Ironwood to Macinaw MI on the #2 some really nice scenery, lucked out
on the Mackinaw bridge and didn't have to go on the grate , sure was windy
though. Picked up some Fudge in Mackinaw city. Stayed at the Baymont reallly
nice (around $80/nite)

Day 3 Macinaw through the Tunnel of Trees(very nice slow ride the road is
very skinny) to Traverse City to the Sleeping Giant Dunes back to Traverse
City

Day 4 Traverse City to Frankenmuth(nice german style town) then to Lapeer
MI, stayed at a nice hotel(Best Western 88/nite) and had a fantastic
steak at place almost right beside it.

Day 5 -Lapeer to Peterborough ON nothing special crossed at Sarnia and drove
the 402 to the 401. One thing I have found is that speed limits in Ontario
seem to be a suggestion. Got caught in rush hour(hahaha) traffic on the 401,
almost overheated the wing, got real close to the red.Stayed at a motel
6(thought it was overpriced when they say no frills they mean no frills )

Day 6 Peterborough to Ottawa on the # 7 had lunch at a nice chip wagon in
Perth.

Day 7-8-9-10 Visit family in Ottawa and attended my Dads 80th birthday
party.

Day 11- Ottawa to Sault Ste Marie- Started out cooler(around 10-12) but
warmed up nice by North Bay.Stayed in a nice little motel the Sattelite-
older but clean.

Day 12 Soo to Ignace- Day was 4 degrees C when we left but got into the
teens by Wawa. As usual beautiful scenery but gas can be real expensive at
some of the smaller towns(hit a 1.50$/liter at marathon)

Day 13 Ignace to Winnipeg Temp in the 30's by the time we got to Winnipeg.

Good to be home. The Wing performed superbly.

Glad you made it home safe and sound! Sorry we weren't able to hook up. If I get back out to Manitoba, I will look you up.

Sounds like you had fun. We did Mackinaw, northern Michigan and the Tunnel of Trees a couple of years ago with our son in law who is a Michigan native. Never thought Michigan was much except flat. he showed me the other side of Michigan. Not bad!
