16th Annual Forestry Forum Pig Roast August 2 & 3rd, 2019!
Tomorrow we order the pig and the port-a-potties (MEN'S and LADY'S!) so that means it is time to start getting a count for the pigroast. :)

Once again, I'd like to take a moment and encourage, that this year, if you have been meaning to come, but keep telling yourself " I'll make it next year", Make it this year! No one knows what the future holds, and as I get deeper in this life, I'm beginning to get a fuller understanding of that. We should grasp each moment like it is the last and celebrate it!  Now, on to the details!

Remember this is a family event. We have a pool for the kids and when we know there is going to be a group, we plan activities to include them. So, if ya got em, BRING EM!  :D

You are not required to rsvp to attend, but we sure would appreciate it if you think there is a good chance you are coming to add your number of attendees to our count. This gives us a good idea on what to expect and also gives incentive to others to come. You can always retract if you need to, but you won't  ;) :).





I strongly recommend getting opinions on hotels or motels in the area from us or other members that have come to the pigroast. There are a handful that turn up on those google maps that we will strongly advise against. There are plenty of very good places to stay.

ITINERARY:
Friday, August 2, Set up day, visiting, pig prep, boiled dinner for supper! Bon fire. Swimming, more visiting
Saturday, August 3, Pancakes and sausage breakfast at 8 a.m., Pig around noonish, followed by door prizes and visiting.

Please continue the count in your post. :)

Fat Olde Elf makes 33. I think this is  Number 16 which means I have been at 15 of these gatherings. My other Michigan contacts always ask me if I'm planning on attending the Pig Roast. So by now you would think they would know I'm serious about the Pig Roast.  I am serious as octogenarian can get .  12 days until 82....Be glad to see everyone..

Brent and Jill from DblTreeBelgian Farm make #34&35.
Last year we stay at Hidden Hills campgrounds and its a very nice place to stay. This year we decided not to camp so we are looking for recommendations from the members on a nice hotel or resort to kick back for a couple nights.
Any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks,

Brent

If I see suggestions, I can let you know if I have negative info.   Maybe try the Carriage house Inn. It is probably full, but you never know. It's a B&B  Great views of the lake and you could probably hear me do a burnout with the mustang from there. :D

Unfortunately, I will NOT be able to attend as previously planned. That makes the count 55. Hopefully next year! Enjoy your pig roast and the remainder of your summer! Rob

You should be reserving a campground site now. This is a tourist area, so things can get busy.  On the opening post I think there is a list of campgrounds.

Not sure what you are up for on time, but the Mackinac Bridge in just two hours from here.  Lots of historical stuff there plus lots of shopping if the Mrs. likes to do that.  Forts, old mill creek and its water powered sawmill. Plus, it is beautiful up there.

Pat and I have always spent several days before and/or after the Pig Roast to explore and enjoy the treasures in Michigan.

Birch Run is a huge Outlet Mall on I75 and is also the home of Tony's (the Bacon place).  East from Birch Run and then North on Hwy 83, mile on the left is a very nice RV campground.  North of the campground a few miles is Frankenmuth.  (a must see)

On the West side is Holland, yup, it even has a windmill.  Very nice and also has a nice campground.  North from Holland is the Sand Dunes, light houses, and Traverse City.

Jeff mentioned Mackinac Bridge, but there is also Mackinaw City (very good place to eat a Pastie) and also catch a boat to Mackinac Island.  East from there is the water driven sawmill.

The East side (Sunrise Coast) is also a nice place to visit but only after seeing the above.

  We try not to tell too many people how nice it is up here.  Petoskey, Harbor Springs are good places to visit.  The drive up or down M119 between Harbor Springs and Cross Village is taken for granted by those of us who live here.  Leggs Inn in Cross Village is a must see.  The food's good too.
  We're not going to make the PR this year.  The estate auction of a local old farmer, tractor collector, character is that Saturday.  These auctions are becoming rare and this one in particular is a must attend for me.
