Drive to Elkhart Lake photos
Tour leader Jim Lindenberg reports: We had 39 signed up, but the severe thunderstorm warnings and heavy rains scared off 60% of the group. We ended up with 17 brave souls on the drive up (8 cars) plus 1 couple met us for dinner. They were already in Elkhart Lake for many of the other festivities. That made 19 for dinner.
The safety meeting was held under cloudy but dry conditions. No umbrellas needed. The first third of the drive was completely dry the second third was during some down pours and broken tree limbs in the road which we all successfully dodged. And the last third was under just drizzling sky’s. Our walk, after parking, to Lake Street cafe was also dry and as we ate the skies began to clear. We enjoyed a not so crowded inspection of a slightly less than full group of entered cars. But a very nice, diverse selection of cars to view.
The food and comaraderie at Lake Street Cafe was outstanding. All of us were glad we faced the weather and won.
Thanks to Al Wagner for these photos.
