    we will leave thrusday after work
    and either drive:
    straight thru (never)

      At this time we are thinking Friday mid morning/afternoon.........Wait a minute...........Hmmm........Google says 823 miles, 13 hours 17 minutes. So theoretically If I left home at 5AM Thursday morning I would be in Wixom Thursday at 8:17 PM. Now as Boob pointed out,if the "Murphy" rule comes into play, it very well could be Friday at 8:17 PM.........So, I guess, we will be there when we get there, hopefully Thursday evening but......... proabably Friday mid morning/afternoon........I think!

        Not sure yet. I'd like to get there early to spend some time at the Henry Ford Museum.

            I will try to meet up with your posse this year on Thursday. I really want to break bread at Mike Copeland's Diversified Creations on Friday

              I'm planning to leave NC Wednesday morning and make it to Detriot late that night. I plan on spending most of the day at the Ford Museum and cruising Woodward on Thursday night.

                  I'm planning on Thursday right now. I cannot long haul this year, so I want to be in Detroit early, then head home Saturday early evening, then catch up in Muskegon, then head to Illinois, then back home.

                      We will arrive when we get there, no matter how hard we try, we can't be there any earlier than that. (probably Friday sometime). Plan on hanging out at the Bangshift party at Mike Copeland's shop on Friday night. Sounds like there may be some bands and other fun stuff going on there on Friday!
