We did have a small rally in MI a few years ago where there were 2 VTs. I have a picture.

How many from Ontario and East are planning to use the Sombra Ferry?

Let's see if we can get a whole basket of eggs!!

Bluewater Ferry - Over 50 years of waterway transportation between the United States and Canada

That will be my route. Where are you and what time would you make the ferry?

Sometime Thursday a.m. is the best I estimate.

I don't know about the sombra ferry but if you take the Walpole island ferry make sure you have enough ground clearance or they won't let you on . I had to remove the wheel off the hitch jack to get on but it was a very nice and scenic ride across

Does anyone know if Algonac has WiFi? I wasn't able to catch a signal last year, and not seeing it listed online.

I couldn't get one either last year, so I brought my Verizon mobile hotspot. It hooked up to Canada, though, charging roaming, so I had to clear this up with Verizon when I got home.

It's very common for cell phones along the US side of the river to connect to Canadian cell towers. The "foreign" minutes can be very expensive. You can turn off roaming or dispute your bill at the end of the month.

Checked with Verizon office, going into settings for data and turning off roaming should force a connection to the Mich side of the river. Verizon coverage map indicates 4G LTE coverage at park. LTE service generally means verizon tower equipment as opposed to access through tower of another carrier which would be considered roaming. Not guaranteed but a good indicator.

By default phone makes connection to strongest signal / least busy tower that is why we get the Canadian tower. Roaming off should allow phone to find US tower if one is available.

If people wished to check other carrier coverage the state park address is 8732 River Rd Clay,Mi 48001

Hey are any of you interested in buying my bunk cover and the front bench seat cushions from my UHaul? I've changed over to a 2 person table up front and I don't need them, and I don't want to store them.
I'll sell the bunk cover (no foam) and I also have the lower couch cushion (with foam) as well as the 3 little foam filler cushions (you need them to fill in the lower bed when the bunk is in the 'up' position).
I'll sell the lot for $30. I'll bring them to Algonac with me if anyone wants them.

So does anyone know if Roger Kimble is coming with his VT, too? That would make 3 VTs! That's about 30% of all known VTs still on the road (at least through FiberglassRV.com and UHaulcamper.com).

JP, that works for me! I'll bring them with me to Algonac. Now they can go to a good home, and I can put money into my camping piggy bank
