Planning to have this years' railfan meet in Durand Michigan. Throwing out some potential dates for a vote, and would like to hear when you all might be available and wanting to come on over for a meet. Please vote for as many options as you would be willing to come for the meet.

What happened to Deshler?

Also, I'm available only the 4th and 5th, FWIW (cuz I'm very important, obviously) :lol:

Deshler was a consideration, but thought better of it and am aiming for Durand.

I'm scheduled to work every Saturday in May as of right now. I can usually trade with someone else for a specific day off though. You guys pick the date then I'll attempt to trade work dates and attend.

I would like to come but not sure if I can.

We am moving back to the East side of Michigan after a new job back in Defense - this time BAE Systems in Sterling Heights. (5 years in the automotive industry has been brutal).

I am glad you guys are still meeting in Durand. I haven't been in some time, but remember organizing the meets back in the early 2000s before life was busy with 3 kids and other things.

Have fun if I can't make it!

Got the day traded off my board so it's an off day. I'll be there sometime in the morning not too incredibly early as I'm not an early riser. Probably bring my son and 1 of the daughters as well.

Tam and I will more than likely be making the trip up there from Toledo. Unless we have family things going on, but I will try to make sure we don't have something on the 25th.

Will we get to see a repeat of them using Jon Leese as a jungle gym? :lol:

That's probably up to Jon. :D :D

But I'm guessing not. The girls aren't as little and rambunctious as they used to be.
That was was before my son was even born. He's 6 now. Time marches on.
