We will be taking All back roads!

We will be staying at the North Country American Inn in Kalkaska on Saturday Night. For reservations call 231-384-6332. Rooms are reasonably priced at in-season rates of $119. On Saturday evening, we will run over to the Filling Station microbrewery in Traverse City for dinner. This will again be a backroads tour. You can check the menu at:

Sunday morning we will depart Kalkaska at 8:30 am for a short drive to Alden and the car show. The distance is 15 miles.

On Sunday after the show, we will take the backroads route to avoid the usual Sunday night stop and go on south I-75 through the tri-cities area. This trip should take between 5.5 and 6 hours with stops. Those wishing to travel I-75 all the way are welcome to do so, but be prepared for the slowdown to begin around Bay City.
