You're right. I should be deported to Wisconsin for that mistake. Why Wisconsin? Because Wisconsin produces a lot more hay than Michigan. Wisconsin is near the top 10 in production of all hay, whereas Michigan is a middle of the road producer. Wisconsin is a top 10, maybe top 5, producer of alfalfa hay. Must be all the cows, right? They could teach me a lot about hay in Wisconsin.

Touche. Replace "free" with "unlimited".
Edit: another goof, shuttle takes you to the top of keewenaw mountain lodge, not the top of Bohemia. I actually meant Brockway.

Was driving up to Paradise one summer afternoon about 5 years back and right near the intersection of M-28 and M-123 I happened to hit the scan button on my car's AM radio. The scan continued to rotate through the entire spectrum (540 through 1710 Khz) continously without finding a single station to lock onto. That sure made us feel like we had left civilization far behind. I think we did still have cell service along the state highways, though.
There are alot of racist people in the UP.
Fall. If you can time it right the leaf change can be quite impressive.
And you can really take a quick tour of the eastern UP in a weekend and see some impressive things. We have done Big Spring, Seney, Crisp Point Lighthouse (if you are looking for something to see in the UP, check it out), Whitefish point, and Tahquamenon in one loop. It makes a long day, and you don't really get to spend a lot of time everywhere but we had a great time.
It's worse in the UP. When you are refused service at McDonalds for being black then its pretty obvious that racism runs rampant in that community

Love the UP, but surprised no one has mentioned the black flies. Depending on the year it can be almost unbearable to be out in the woods because of the flies and mosquitos.
Someone please post the jump to conclusions game from Office Space.
Fine, but I had several bad experiences on a trip up to Munising and the surrounding area. It was pretty clearly race related.
They didn't serve me once at McDonald's in Marquette because I was really drunk and belligerent. I'm White....must be racist.
I've had similar experiences in Detroit. Ho hum.
I don't see how your example is an effective counter point.
We were well behaved and prompt with our order.
No different than the people in front of us who were served. The only difference was race
im having a tough time buying this on face value. it may be true and im full of shit, but i've never seen anything like that.
Were you eating at the Hardee's in Munising...because that is just a shitty fucking place.
This is true, they can be really bad to the point of being unbearable depending on the time of season and location. We were camping at 12 Mile Beach this past August and the black flies were so bad that we aborted the camping a day early and found a motel
Fayette State Park is one place in the UP where I've never had a problem with insects, probably due to it's location on Snail Shell Harbor on the Garden Peninsula. The breezes off the lake keep the annoying insects away.

Maybe it's Mickey D's that is the racist outfit.
Let's get out our broad brush and make sure everything gets painted with this label.
It's been a while but I've been there a few times. I've camped in St Ignace, visited the Soo Locks in Sault St. Marie, and visited the Great Lakes Shipwrecks Museum at Whitefish Point. I've also visited Tahquamenon Falls. When I was in high school I went to Marquette and watched our high school football team play in the Superior Dome at NMU. Once you get west of Marquette it's pretty much just road and wilderness. I've been as far north as Houghton. Houghton felt like a mix of Canada, Wisconsin, and Michigan. Kind of odd.

Where was the McDonald's? There isn't one in Munising.
Say Ya to Da White Folks Eh?
I've been on that bridge in a blizzard. Scary sheet.
Pack up da Yugo and head nort!
The only time you appreciate driving in the grated lane
