Let's go to Belle Isle in Detroit

Join us for a trip to Michigan's newest state park. Belle Isle is situated in the middle of the scenic Detroit River in the shadow of the Detroit skyline. The beautiful island park is home to miles of walking trails, an Aquarium, the conservatory (plants), the Dossin Shipping Museum, and other stuff. Lots to hike around and see. I'm hoping we can meet up at the park and ride and then carpool to the island. Hopefully someone with a park pass can volunteer to drive. Any comments on if this are welcome, I just picked the date out of hat, so if you know something else is going on we can change it too.

    Guys. I'm sorry I just had an emergency at work that'll require me to work tomorrow. I know some people were riding with me. I hope this doesn't alter things much. Hopefully I can make the next outing. Again sorry

    So for people meeting us there, I figure we should be at Belle Isle around 12:30, depending on traffic. Probably a good place to meet would be the Scripps Conservatory lot. Post if you have any questions.

    I have a pass and wouldn't mind driving if you need me too. I can take 3 people.

    Well it takes about an hour to drive there, so I would say about noon, unless people want to go earlier. I'd go with noon for now I think.

    I would love to go, but I don't live in Lansing anymore. What time do you expect to be at Belle Isle?
