SS Badger Ferry across Lake Michigan
« on: March 07, 2019, 01:29:37 PM »
 Has anyone ever taken this ferry? In Sept my Navy reunion will be in Green Bay and I'll be coming from PA, we have been through the Chicago area and around the lake through the U.P. and thought maybe the ferry would be an interesting change.

I took one about 20 years ago, it was out of Manitowoc WI. I don't remember the town on the MI side. It was uneventful and the valets didn't scratch my truck, is all I remember😊 Kinda boring.

I have. Once. Nothing to see but water. If it was a lot cheaper than driving I'd consider it again if I was going that way, but that's the only reason. Don't wear white or take a coffee up on deck down wind from the stacks. If you have never done it, I'd not try to talk you out of it but if you are on a vacation there are far more opportunities for running into coolness driving around the lake to the north.

 I was wondering if you'd pipe up, remembered you took that to the logging congress, come to think of it I met the Logrite folks there too, that's been awhile.

Don't remember if I ever said, I was driving back to the jobsite after I left the logging congress and stopped at a convenience store. Got back into the truck and the starter pooped out. I'm a thousand miles from home and pre cell phone. Who should drive up within about 2 minutes but Horselogger :D

There is another ferry, it's a jet powered and crossing takes 2-1/2 hrs. Goes from Muskegon to Milwaukee. One senior and a car is $215 one way.  Google Lake express ferry
