Michigan Vacation – Day 2 of 6

On Thursday, August 8, we drove from Norwalk, Ohio, to Honor, Michigan.  We departed Norwalk around 8:15 AM and arrived in Honor at 2:45 PM.  Our accommodation for three nights was at Cedar Ridge Cabins.

There are eight cabins available at Cedar Ridge Cabins.  Each cabin offers modern bath facilities, air conditioning, cable television, small fridge, coffee maker and deck with picnic table. These three larger cabins have two full-size beds, as well as a kitchenette.

I forgot to take pictures of the inside of our cabin.  The three photographs that follow were obtained from the Cedar Ridge Cabins web page.

Located behind the cabins are 3 acres on which you can play volleyball, play horseshoes, build a bonfire or hang out in the 16×16 recreation room.

We traveled approximately 360 miles on Thursday from Norwalk, Ohio, to Cedar Ridge Cabins in Honor, Michigan.  Unlike our first travel day, we encountered no rain on Thursday … only dry roads and sunshine.

The purpose of our Michigan vacation was to attend a Vulcan Riders and Owners Club (VROC) motorcycle rally.  After getting settled in the cabin we rode the motorcycle to Cycle-Moore Campground in Interlochen, Michigan — the location of the rally.  The campground was located about 11 miles from our cabin.  With the exception of Bob and me, everyone else who attended the rally stayed at this campground.

Bob and I signed this VROC banner sometime during the rally.  We had not yet signed it, though, when I took this picture.  A motorcycle rally has been held at Cycle-Moore Campground each year since 2002.

We chatted with several rally attendees before heading out for dinner with Lisa and Ray R. and Marlene and David S.  We ate dinner at Maddy’s Tavern.   I don’t remember much about our menu selections.  I do remember, though, that pretzels and mustard were brought to our table, while we were waiting for our meals.  We sat on the outdoor patio, which was inviting and quite cozy.   I had never met Lisa and Ray and was only minimally acquainted with Marlene and David from another VROC rally that we attended a few years ago.  I enjoyed getting to know Lisa and Ray and furthering the friendship with Marlene and David during dinner.

We returned to Cycle-Moore Campground after dinner.  We chatted for a while with several  other rally attendees before leaving for our cabin for the night.

    Looks like a great little cabin –with everything you need. Do you two not camp? George and I do NOT. We prefer staying in a motel/cabin….

    Hugs,

      We have a couple tents. We used to camp; however, we have transitioned to hotel / cabin. We are looking at trailers that will haul the motorcycle, though. Some of the trailers would allow us to camp in them. So who knows; maybe a toy hauler will be what we transition to next.
