MONITORING: Since this is a rather lengthy drive for many, and for those that still have them, we encourage participants to monitor Citizen's Band (CB) channel 35 during your drive to Escanaba. If anyone experiences trouble or needs to find fuel, this would perhaps be a good way to stay in touch with other rally attendees.

Did you know that you can often extend your stay at the Escanaba fairgrounds, depending on availability? Why not use the fairgrounds or other nearby campgrounds as a "base camp", arrive a few days early, or extend your stay post-rally, and take several day trips to the many attractions in the area?
