I'm flying out today on a trip out of town for next week.  I just landed a new job and they are sending me out to Troy, MI for a week of training.  So, I will be around the Detroit metro area all this week (May 20-24).  I'll have a rental car, so I'll have some wheels to get around with, but I probably shouldn't go on too many distant road trips to places very far away.  Not sure how much the company will cover for mileage and gas on the rental.  But anywho, if anyone on here lives in the Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, or Indiana area and would like to meet up sometime for lunch or something or to show me their corral of tractors, etc. shoot me a PM on here with your E-mail and/or phone number and we can try to make some plans to hang out one day this week.  I'll get E-mail notification on my cell phone if you PM me and I'll be able to get your info.  If you reply to this post, that's fine, but I probably won't be able to read it from my phone.  Plus, no reason in everyone else seeing your personal info, so PM me for some privacy...  :smilewink:


Hopefully someone on here knows a lot about the area and can show me some good places to go for food or entertainment too...


I'll be flying back to NY Saturday morning, so I should be back settled here later on Saturday evening.  Wish me luck on my trip and on my training for my new job!

If you don't think it would be too far, you would be more than welcome to stop in at my place.


MapQuest says that it's about 3 hrs. from downtown Troy.

... or not...  I never got any E-mail notices of anyone PMing me, so...  Oh well, it was worth a shot at least.  I was actually pretty busy with training all week anyways, so I guess it's fine as I didn't end up having that much time to do anything anyways.  I did hit up the Motor City Casino and the MGM Grand Detroit while I was there though.  I won $75 playing craps there and had a good time.  The food there is awesome.  Too bad I was away from all my friends and family on my Birthday, but at least I had a good meal at this awesome steakhouse that I didn't have to pay for since the company is reimbursing me for all my expenses while I was out there.  So, that ended up not being too bad, actually...
