    @BetsyD I'd check out Wayne State's campus for an available track. The River Walk is also a great, safe place for that.

    I remember running by a tech school right by ICHQ with a track too. Can't remember the name though.

    Probably Cass Tech. If it's not during the school day, that might work too.

    Riverwalk / Dequindre Cut is your best bet; since this is during the school year the two school tracks might not be open to the public. Nicole runs as well. I'm sure she'll be able to help you.

    Looking around online I am seeing that Belle Isle is popular with runners and also I guess Rouge River has a bike trail but I can't find any trail maps or any details on where I can park for that.

    Belle Isle is definitely popular but it's a State park now and requires a rec pass or entrance fee.

    I don't recommend Rouge River. It's not terrible, but it's not my favorite idea either.

    ICSP 2015 Challenge: Given a trickle charger, a can of SeaFoam, and a canister of fresh gasoline, get the Vespas to start.

    Don't forget @UPSLynx ... he will be there in 9 hours. If he read his ticket correctly.

    Lincoln, you're almost a Michigander. Almost. You're so close.... We just need to get you to call it River Rouge and you'll be that much closer.

    (Nobody calls it Rouge River)

    Put the trickle charge on them now (or one of them). That is why it is a trickle charger, let it sit for 24 hours and then move it to the other one.

    She was referencing the park - I wasn't gonna bother checking :p

    @Ryder The battery isn't actually dead so my guess is the carburetor from stale gas, but I'll give it a shot.

    I have opened a beer and declared this event started.

    omg 15 hours until my flight aaaaah I can't wait

  • RyderRyder Kalamazoo, Mi Icrontian

    If it truly is a trickle charger (make sure it says max charging of 2 amps) then it won't hurt to have it on one or both for 8 to 12 hours if you have been trying to start them repeatedly :) .

    @Linc I'd be happy to help with the Vespas as well. But I imagine someone will already have them up and running by Thursday night :)

    So...I'm participating in the CrossFit Open (scaled division) and the workout period happens to fall in line with the entire time I'm at ICSP. My plan is to get my workout out of the way Friday morning at 6:00am at CrossFit BMW (no drinking for me on Thursday). The other available time is 5:30pm. This brings up two things:
    1. Would anyone be willing to either provide transportation or loan a vehicle so I can get this thing done?
    2. If anyone wants to see me (probably) look absolutely ridiculous, they're more than welcome to come watch. It might actually help to have a small cheering section.

    Yes, I realize I'm absolutely crazy for doing this, but it's an important thing to me. Those of you who have known me for years have seen the changes I've gone through. Even though I've only been doing this for two months, there have been even bigger improvements not only in appearance, but the way I feel in general too.

    I have extremely important plans Friday morning that involve my bed, but you can borrow my car if you'd like. 5:30pm you can probably borrow it too, barring essential plans.

    It is super weird beating @TiberiusLazarus to an IC event. Like, I don't even know what to do with myself.
