Michigan Centennial Caravan

June 17, 2019 - June 23, 2019

TCT has had a number of Caravans that have been highly successful and enjoyed by participants as well as
visitors that have taken advantage of Open Houses during the trips.
We have had the following caravan adventures.

  • June 4-10, 2006 – Bicentennial of the Historic National Road (Route 40) Caravan
  • June 2-8, 2010 – Route 6 Caravan
  • June 23 – July 4, 2013 – Lincoln Highway Caravan
  • July 30 – August 8, 2015 – Super Duper Yooper Looper Caravan (Michigan Upper Peninsula)

You won’t want to miss the opportunity to participate in the Michigan Centennial Celebration Caravan.

To reserve a spot in the Centennial Celebration Caravan, a $100 deposit will be required. You will be notified well in advance of the starting date as to the total cost of the caravan. The caravan is initially limited to all antique, vintage and classic makes and models. If space is available, any TCT member with a retro or newer model will be able to participate.

The Michigan Caravan will not have any restrictions on the number of antique, vintage or classic makes. There is ample room at the Ingham County Fairgrounds, Orchard Beach, and the site to be determined in Traverse City.

To reserve your spot, send a check for $100 made out to Tin Can Tourists to Forrest Bone, mail them to Forrest Bone. PO Box 489, Gregory, Michigan 48137.

During our stay at Orchard Beach, we would provide an Open House for fellow campers.

At Interlochen, we would like to utilize the picnic shelter as a gathering spot for informal get-togethers, morning coffee, and Saturday entertainment.

Some places to visit while at Interlochen. On the shores of Lake Michigan, the city that Michael Moore calls home has much to offer: local wineries, Inuit art, sandy beaches, good (even great) food and lots of quirky history. And then there are the cherries.  https://www.nytimes.com/2018/07/26/travel/what-to-do-in-traverse-city-michigan.html

We are working on providing a 1927 Kamp Kar for display along with historically accurate camping equipment and an early Clare camper towed by a Ford Model T. These items would fit perfectly with the state’s and TCT’s Centennial Celebrations.
