      Lake Michigan Touring Rally Day 2

      August 31, 2021 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 68 °F

      There was a haircut place next door, and after that, I made it to the hotel to do laundry...finally. It's a good thing I got to Traverse City so early because it took forever to wash and dry just one load. I made it to the dealership just in time for hors d'oeuvre (little smokies, jalapeno poppers, and cheese sticks 😶).

      Heading back to the hotel, at the gas station I grabbed a bite for dinner and breakfast, then called it an early night.

      I was up at 06:00 this morning to pack and meet Bill, Paul, and Kathy at their hotel. I've ridden at least one day with Bill each touring rally except the Texas one, so it was nice to jump in him again.

      We rolled at 07:30 or there about and have had a nice day hugging the east side of Lake Michigan and swooping through the Tunnel of Trees to pop out at Legs Inn, Michigan's 50 Rides 1 Nation location.

      Then it was further north to Mackinaw City. I found a couple of pairs of my awesome gloves at the dealership there. (I'm picking up extras because they don't make them anymore.) Plus, we got our photos at a 10 Rides for 2021 location, giving me 9 of the 10. Only 1 to go!!

      Now we're stopped for lunch at a place called Moofinfries. Ice cream and burgers (moo), fish (fin), and fries. Clever. One of the ice cream flavors is Michigan Pot Hole 🤣.

      I have walked across the street to get pasties. That is NOT pronounced with a long A. It's pass-tees. I know what they are, but have never had one. Bill and Kathy have never even heard of them, so I'm getting three for us. Yummy!

      So long [for now], and thanks for all the fish! ✌️
