    Ok, somebody calculate how many Jeeps are required to stretch the full length, allowing perhaps 1 to 2 Jeep lengths between each vehicle?

    5280 x 5 miles across (approx) = 26,400 ft across the bridge. A jeep is about 14 ft long, multiply by 2.5 for 1.5 spaces in between = 35 ft. 26,400 / 35 = 755 jeeps.

    I'm interested. Haven't talked to the wife yet tho.

    Hi Guys & Gals!!

    Quick update on the Jeep the Mac ride!! (To be honest I'm surprised I haven't seen much chatter on this one!!)

    The folks in St. Ignace and Drummond Island put together a really cool event - parade across the Bridge and the next day trails on Drummond. Reports I'm getting are all coming back positive! The final tally for the Bridge crossing was around 460-470 Jeeps, and most of those made it over to Drummond the next day, almost 400 Jeeps I've been told. Wow!! That must have been a sight!!

    Given that the promoters planned for 300 Jeep this year, I think it's safe to say that if you didn't get a chance to ride over this year you'll get another chance next year!!

    And a quick shout out to the Association VP Kari Dunlap for representing the Association for this event!!
