Day One – Home to Marshall MI
Miles: 301
Elapsed Time: 7:37

We tried to come up with a unique approach to Marshall and not simply go straight up I-75. So we exited a little north of Sidney and ran over to US127 and Grand Lake where we we made our first stop. Riding north on US127 was much better than the interstate but about as straight. Once we hit US24 it was getting a little later than we had planned so we jumped down to Ft. Wayne and got on I-69 which took us nearly the entire way to Marshall. Once we got to Marshall we checked into the Hampton and beat it up to Dark Horse Brewery. The beer was good and the Beer Garden was also very popular on the Thursday evening we were there. Great atmosphere and we had some decent food as well. Off to a pretty good start.
