sons of Turner 2012

OK sons. So school is out for another year and I would love to gather with the Sons and its time for me to paint. And for me, painting means living. And living means looking and seeing and thinking. And I need to go somewhere to do that.
.

Saugatuck Michigan.
Its closeby. Its a three hour drive from Chicago. There's loads of galleries. There's beaches and dunes and boats and forests and farmland and coffeeshops and midwesterners eating icecream.

We don't have to fly.
We don't have to rent cars assuming enough of us have cars.
My plan.
4 days, 3 nights June 3-6 or 4-7, not sure.
Cost $225 includes accommodations, 3 breakfasts and 3 big evening meals, state park entrance fees and parking costs.
Extras will be total gas, beverages and lunches.
I havent booked the house, but I've found one that I think will be perfect. I need to know who is in. Reply yes or no on this blog. Lets make this post the central place for all questions and reservations. MBK

  2. I'm totally in as long as it's at the right date/time. I'm going out of town for a weekend in July, but that's it!

    1. very probably will. At least of a salon nature. But this may be the only getaway that I can do this summer. We shall miss you as we do our thing in Michigan.

  5. I should be able to swing this. I'll have to rummage through my finances and start skimming cash that I can now but I think I should be able to have enough saved up by that time. We can also carpool and save on gas obviously. My little Aveo gets around 30-35mpg and can hold probably 3 people with thier luggage including me.

    2. She's sticking her tongue out at you AND possibly also calling you a 'p'.

      WHAT DO YOU THINK, GABRIELA? -beep beep beep-

      (I really hope she gets this joke, or I'm going to look ridiculous...)

  8. ok well it looks like we have ourselves a trip. I am speaking with the house owner tomorrow to confirm dates but it looks like she cant get the house ready for the sunday 3rd so it will almost certainly be Monday the 4th till Thursday the 7th. Keep an eye on this blog and dont post new posts, just comments for the next few days. Or use the SOT facebook page which I check less regularly.

  10. Talked it over with my family and boyfriend, and I don't think I can do it because of my health. I wouldn't be able to get much painting done and am saving as much money as I can for hip replacements. I would've loved to chauffeur you guys though since I can fit 4-5 people in my car! So bummed.

  11. i am in. unfortunatly I only have a pick up truck which isnt very trustworthy so I'd have to hitch a ride. but I am more then happy to help pay for gas.
