    Barring the end of the world or some other minor problem, it will be my 30th show.

    What are the roads like this year? Did 75 ever get finished or is it still blocked?
    The shortest distance between two points is a circle of infinite diameter.

        The section that has been closed for about two years is open in theory, I don't drive it so I have no idea. There has been problems that have resulted in I-75 north bound being closed off and on above 8 mile road due to a cascading number of pot holes and canyons. Here is the link for the roads in Michigan after it opens just click on the cone icon.
        Mi Drive is a construction and traffic information website that allows users to view traffic cameras, speeds, locate incidents, and construction.

                Long shot, but I'm going to try and talk my Dad and/or Father in law into going. Only about a 5 hour (one way) trip for us. Not very likely but I'd like to go to one of these shows one day. Cabin fever is a bit to far of a hike, but Names is the closest.

                  Either show is worth the trips if your into models or machining in general.

                            At that rate pretty soon people will start crossing the boarder at Port Huron to buy cheaper gas in Canada.

                              She got her seat cushion handed to her by just about everybody, but the palent will die in 12 year crowd. It went away fast, and she is thinking on ways to pay for it now. So gas should be doing the weekly yo-yoing.
