      With the nice weather we've been having got me think about the annual cruise we have around Door County.
      As the title states it will be on Saturday May 12th at 11AM.

      The meet up spot will be at the Target in Sturgeon Bay, since it's easy to get to and there is a gas station right there too.

      I don't have a set route, so feel free to make suggestions on where you might want to and what you want to check out. Usually we stop for food somewhere on the cruise, along with stopping to do little go-carting and if there is enough interest and time permits stop for ice cream.

      The address for the Target http://local.yahoo.com/info-16836532...t-sturgeon-bay

      If you have any questions feel free to ask.

      A few pictures from previous cruises.

      Hmm... man its been too long. I'd love to attend one of these again.
      Have to change the water pump on my rocco, it threw a fit when I went to put it in storage a few months ago for winter. It isnt making any noise now that its back out but I dont trust it to make a trip like this at the moment

      Possibly...

      It looks like I'll have that date free so far.

      I'd be more than happy to host a meet and greet at my crib again.

      Well get to it. It would be great to see the Rocco with its new stance.

      Yeah, it would be great if you could make it. You'll have to give a heads up to Nick and Alex.

      How is your brother doing Eric?

      What is the car count for the drive? I may not be able to make it if the wife has to travel for business again.

      He's doing better now. He wasn't doing so great middle of last week and had to spend a couple days in the Hospital. He's out now and he is actually looking forward to the cruise.

      To be honest there isn't an official count right now, but I'm hoping in the 10-12 range and you never know it could be more.

      Hope you can make it Patrik.

      wow getting close now! I'll have to check my work schedule for my 2nd job tomorrow and see what I have for a shift. If I'm working 5-11 it's iffy. If I don't have to work there I'm definitely in.

      Well that's unfortunate. I was hoping to check out the wagon.

      We usually only do spring cruise, but with enough interest we could do a fall cruise. Otherwise hit me up when you're back and we could have an impromptu cruise.

      Cruise was great. Only had 5 cars on the cruise, but that actually makes things a little easier.

      Hoping to have some pictures up in the next couple of days

      A few pictures from the cruise.

      A little go kart action





      It was a great time and if there is enough interest we could do a fall cruise.
