      Trying to gauge interest in a fall cruise of the kettle moraine this year.
      Tentative date would be late September/to mid October. Weekend day.
      Spirited drive on scenic routes.
      Do a vortex search "kettle kruise" if you need a better idea of what this event would look like/be about. Also same search on YouTube will get you an idea.

      Interest and participation has dropped off the past few years.
      Before I invest a bunch of weekends into re-designing the route , etc... I want to know if the interest is there this year.

      Looking to get 50+ cars/people posting up that they are interested here in this thread- just reply.
      If we have 50 people interested by August 20th, then I will get to work.
      Dates/official sign up, etc will come later.
      For now just post up if you are relatively sure this is something you want to do this year.

      PM if you are interested in helping, or have ideas/questions.

      Basically it was Kettle Moraine Scenic route and other rustic roads, I believe. Somewhere from Germantown to Elkhart Lake. I don't have the old route info from when I was a member of Venom, but sounds like Jeff would create a new one anyways.

      So I count about 20 so far.

      Will let this kick around until the end of next week.
      Please let other people who think may be interested know and ask them to post up.

      50+ people is my magic number based on organizing this for about the last 7+ years.
      I know that anywhere between 1/3 and 1/2 the people who sign up will back out every year.

      If we have the people, I will invest the time (and recruit others to help) in reworking the route to really improve it. I know a lot of the sections of the "classic" kettle crusise ran in the past are not as much fun anymore as se of the areas built up and got more populated.

      Just as a teaser to what I have planned, would probably start in delafield, do some all new southern kettle goodness, and end the cruise not as far north. I know the last few years people who have run it multiple times have really come to dread the long drive back from Elkhart.

      Keep finding folks to sign up.
      Questions/suggestions/ offers to help - send me a PM
