Hi Bob, I am considering applying to MBAC. I was wondering if you wanna grab a half hour lunch or a drink during a weekday this or next week... meet at a place at your convenience?

Hi. Thanks for the message. I think at this point I am bringing my bike, but I'd be interested in what you have as a loaner? Richard

Bob,  I can live without most of the things Ghostery suppresses (facebook, twitter integration, tracker cookies, certain ads). And if I 'need' to see a particular component, I just add an exception.

I run Ghostery in combo with AdBlock Plus. I rarely see ads anymore.

Thanks for all the info- I'll let you know what I end up doing! Haven't been to Mackinaw since I was about 10 and all I remember is fudge and pony rides... :)

The messaging system on here is a bit odd...I think you have to friend someone before you can message them. But thanks for the trip advice! Looks like both MI-WI ferries are running this year so it's nice to have those options, though they are expensive:

Do you think it's worth it to buy/carry "Round Lake Michigan: A Bicyclist's Tour Guide"? I don't have a smartphone or garmin or anything so I thought the maps in here might prove useful.
