My wife and I plan on being there.
I'm planning on bringing some maple syrup to go with the pancakes.
If some desire to they could also doctor the sausages with it.
Still 2 months from planting them, but I might also bring some red taters for friday evening if they grow.

We had such a great time last year at the Pig Roast, I'm actually kind of sad that I'll be in Alaska this year. It's my only window of availability, and it's been a Bucket List item almost all my life....
If something falls through, though- I'll be there. We won such cool prizes (including some of GAB's great Syrup), and met a bunch of great FF folks- we'll really miss it.

@tule peak timber  cities to look at to fly into would be Detroit, flint, grajd rapids or Lansing.  All 2 or 3 hour drive south of us.  Towns to stay in would be Mt. Pleasant, Clare to the south, and Houghton lake to the north. there are a couple places in Harrison. The closest to us is the carriage house inn. About 1/2 mile.

I believe I flew into Saginaw a few years ago.  A bit closer and had better connecting time for me.  Slight layover in Detroit.  Stayed in Clare.
