Does anyone spend time in Traverse City during the Summer? I know about Pete, but I'm curious about others. I'd be interested in get together next year closer to home. While I drive, I try to confine myself to bicycling and walking for the most part, hence my interest in something nearby.

I would think we can combine a trip to Bill's with a side trip to TC as well.

There is plenty of camping room on my property for the more hardy, but clean and cheap lodging nearby as well. looking at dates in late Spring/early Summer. Anyone have a problem with early June?

Bill,

I will probably camp if that's ok. I'll also bring the s'mores! Wonder how they go with beer?

Well, yeah. :rolleyes:

At least a milk jug doesn't have a silly pop top thing like beer cans.

And THAT is exactly where you run into trouble with the s'mores !

I'd be interested in meeting folks as well. I usually spend a couple weeks over in the Jordan River valley each year and drift over to the TC area on occasion to visit a friend who lives just outside of town.

I'm typically in the area in the Spring for the start of inland trout fishing season the end of April and then back again for morel hunting during mid-May. I try to be there for a week in June and/or July as well. So hopefully my travels will coincide with this groups' get-together and I'll have a chance to meet everyone.

This year I'll be in NY state over Memorial Day weekend taking a wetplate collodion workshop from John Coffer at his farm. I also plan to be in NJ learning daguerreotype from Jason Motamedi the third week in July, but other than those dates my schedule is open most of the summer and I'd love an excuse to head north.

I"ll also mention that the Midwest Large Format Asylum group is starting to plan a trip to and through the UP this summer. I also plan to drift through the Marquette area for a week or so this summer but don't have solid plans as to when that might happen. So, I'll be up and down state all summer and hope to catch up to this group at some point.

..I live in TCPete!

I was talking to good friend and great photographer Greg Seman the other day and brought up your name. He says you two are acquainted. Anyway... he will be one of those at the gathering to come... as long as I can get him to cut himself away from the numbers game for awhile. He and I have done a couple shoots together and there will be many more I hope.

Founders is great. I only live about few miles away...so that brewery is a frequent watering hole. Try a neopolatin when you are there..... A mix of their stout topped off with their rasberry ale...layered like a black and tan. Good stuff.

Nope Peter. She is my former undergraduate advisor and not a photographer. I believe she does have something to do with the Art Museum there in town. Perhaps on the advisory board or something.

I've been following some of your wet plate discussions and am interested if you'd like to give a demo up at the property if we can actually get a weekend together for folks to make it up? I for one would be extremely interested. The place is a little rough, but we have running water and a lot of space. Looking at weekends in June and will make a call-out soon.
