I see that Lakeside Motel & Cottages scores pretty good on Tripadvisor. Any other input on that property?

I'm not absolutely positive I'll make it but I'd make 61.

Any info on the Mackinaw Bridge? I've never been over it but my drivers were always leery of it due to winds if I understood correct? That would be my route if I can make it.

The bridge is a non-issue. I cross is multiple times a year.

If you have any concerns about driving the Bridge, the Bridge Authority will drive you with your vehicle across for you. That includes "18 wheelers" also. Usually a non-issue though as Jeff stated. Check AM radio station 530 for Bridge information before crossing for current conditions.

I don't understand all this talk of motels and such. A gathering of foresters, loggers, sawyers, etc., and y'all can't raise a little ol' bunkhouse to stay in? Pig roast and barn raising!
Find something to do that interests you.

Our schedule hasn't been agreed upon yet for that weekend so I can't commit to Saturday.  If we can't make it Saturday I may come for the festivities Friday evening.

My wife and I are making plans to attend for the 1st time.  The only stopping me know is work. I need to clear that hurdle this week.
