    There are several breweries along the way to Toronto (helps if you can get someone to be DD).

    Or there's always London.... halfway between the two, and it's full of Canadians lol.

    Well, I would definitely want to meet you again, but unfortunately, Detroit is a "bit" out of the way for me, I don't pass by there every day ... and April's not a good time, either, what with two birthdays to come, and a tiny little TPF-Germany-Meet-Up to be prepared in May .................... ;)

    Well, I do not really know my exact schedule in Detroit yet, and not sure when I will have free time. But I guess I will be a bit flexible.

    London is about a 2 hour drive from the border crossing at Detroit. You will have to factor in time to cross the border, and the time to get from where you're staying in Detroit to the border. It's virtually all highway driving from the border to London.

    What happens at these "meetups" may I ask? Is it like a meet and greet? I might be interested in a photo trip.

    ^^^ Yep. You meet some fellow TPF'rs, chat, take some pics, hit a pub, maybe try each other's camera gear. Good company, good laughs, good time. At least that's been my experience. You can check some pics from previous meetups here and here

    well, the people who meet-up usually decide what happens ;) It also depends on how many actually meet. Very large meet-ups might require some people to organise some things in advance. whereas mini-meet-ups can survive with no planning at all (except deciding for a place and a time to meet-up of course ;) ).

    There are some interesting natural spots around Windsor, with Point Pelee nearby (great spot for migrating birds, may be a bit early in the season).

    If there's a pub involved then I can likely be counted in.

    Wonder if Sideburns has seen this yet - he lives nearby in Windsor.
