I'm in. Since Elkhart is close to Grand Rapids, I may take a side trip to the builders of my engine, Peninsular Diesel.

Milford, Indiana area.

I have contacted Elkhart Campground, and Eby Pines Campground. Monday, I will contact Elkhart County Fairgrounds. All of these can handle us those dates and we will select a campground next week. Please check out their websites and give me your input.

I wish I could make this one consdiering how it's fairly close to me. But considering my graduation ceremony is May 8th, I don't think I would be able to get back to Michigan from Kentucky and get the Barth road worthy by the 13th.

Next one I guess...

Count us in Nick!....We're packed, driveshaft is greased...We're good-to-go! Big Grin

I spent quite a bit of time in the area......to help flesh it out a little:

For those who may be staying in the area longer, there's the BIG Great Lakes Rally in Berrien Springs MI on May 27-31, about 50 miles away....Over a thousand coaches, lots of exhibits, seminars and entertainment.
FMI: http://www.glassrally.org/

You can't visit the area without a trip to the Shipshewana Flea Market (20mi+/-). Acres & acres of flea market antiques, junque & crafts. It's predominantly Amish, so here's your big chance to pick up a buggy, draft horse or butter churn at great prices. FMI: http://www.tradingplaceamerica.com/fleamarket.php

Mentone IN, (35mi) is national home of the Popular Rotorcraft Association at the local airport - lots of civilian helicopters & gyros on display & in the air. Hometown of Larry Bell (Bell Helicopter), there's a great little museum in town about his life & accomplishments, as well as various rotarywing aircraft on display.
FMI: http://www.bellaircraftmuseum.org/

For gearheads, consider a visit to the the Auburn/Cord/Duesenberg Museum in Auburn IN (40mi)....Some of the most beautiful cars ever produced! FMI: http://www.automobilemuseum.or...t/Pages/default.aspx

After watching a master at his craft work for a week, there is no way I would embarrass myself with my amateurish abilities. As any good leader would do, I will delegate those duties to a real expert that I will import from the College Park, Md. area. He shall be the Fire CZAR.

Just spent Saturday last week in Shipshewana, About 25 mile from Milford. Nice place, old Amish town. Lots of horse and buggies. Huge old time hardware store. Lots of Quilts and Quality built funiture. Know whre Barths Quality came from. Got together with my sister, brother, niece/nephew and new grand niece for family style meal. they are from Grand Rapids, and this was about half way for us to meet. Worth the 4 Hr drive just for the food. The Amish sure can cook. Great place to put on the schedule for a short drive from Milford. Don't know if can make it on Thur, kids in school. but Barth willing will try to meet everyone on Sat.

Can you bring firewood into Indiana or is there a restriction because of beetle infestation?

Regarding the date for Milford GTG. The first weekend of time trial for the Indy 500 will also be that weekend for any one that might be interested.
