Looks like a TC run today. There is a loaded gondola spotted behind Family Video on Cadillac's north end this evening.

More or less on topic. I’m going to drive up tomorrow morning to catch the Cadillac turn, is there any snow?

Thanks!

Found a GLC Cadillac to Traverse City video decently made, taken in July 2018: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fdAdQSnVBgM

I’m not sure if that’s the one you were going for, that’s mine from Ohio. I did do one Cadillac to Traverse City as well. :D

We have around an inch of snow on the ground. Forecast has partly sunny and around 40 degrees tomorrow. Will they be running the day after Thanksgiving?
