In Cincinnati, in addition to their world famous Chili, you won't want to miss the BBQ Ribs at the Montgomery Inn. The original location is on Montgomery Road in Montgomery, Ohio. They also have a location in Dublin, Ohio. Their ribs and sauce are also available at Kroger and Meier stores. Also north of I-275 in Fairfield Ohio is Jungle Jim's International Market located at 5440 Dixie Hwy. This is one of the most interesting markets with foods from all over the world.

Mmmmm, love Ted Drewes concretes”….

St. Louis is home of Budweiser beer and you might want to stop for a plant tour and some samples. In addition there great Italian restaurants located in the section known as "The Hill'. If you like Pizza, try Imo's pizza, (my favorite) and save room for a Ted Drewes Frozen Custard. They have their own version of a 'Concrete'.

After the rally, I recommend heading to Frankenmuth Mi. for their Bavarian Festival. German Food, Beer and Entertainment for Friday and Saturday. Sunday is the 100+ parade. There are several campgrounds in the area, Yogi Bear (expensive), Pine Ridge (moderate) 5 mile south of town on 83 and the Churchgrove CG, 30 amp only, water and a dump station on site.

From there travel north to Linwood and stop at the Williams Cheese Co. Great varieties and they cut fresh cheddar from a "wheel".

Extend your trip north to Mackinaw Island and continue into the Upper Peninsula. St, Ignace has several CG's and locations where you can catch a boat to the island. Visit Sault Ste. Marie and watch the 1000 ft. Ore freighters navigate the locks. Next stop is Whitefish Point and the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum, featuring history on the Edmond Fitzgerald. Also stop by the Tahquamenon Falls. There is a nice CG. just north of Newberry. The Picture Rock National Seashore has some interesting rock formation along Lake Superior. If time permits, proceed to Copper Harbor. There are several CGs in the Houghton Hancock area. North of there is a copper mine that offers tours. There is one of the largest steam winches ever made. It was used to haul loads of copper ore up from the mine. They say there is more copper still underground than had been mined.

You could choose to return via Wisconsin.

Please travel safe and remember “it’s the journey”

Standing Rules:

Sena and I have put many miles on the coach in support of FMCA’s INTO Area and the Convention in Albuquerque, NM. This year at the INTO rally it rained a lot (had many little rivers running through the food/entertainment tent). The worst part was the wind, the main vendor tent at Quartzsite closed down for safety concerns. We found out that many of the smaller vendor tents were damaged by the wind. The last day of the rally and the
