Final Day

We have had an amazing week in Michigan and sadly it is nearly over.  The next morning at about 3:00 we would have to leave to begin our journey home.  Today there would be no adventures, (or so I thought) and we would spend the day packing and getting ready to head out.  For me, […]

Still Hunting

When I last left you we had just gotten out of a very deep mud hole and we were back at the crossroad from before.  There were 4 directions and we knew where 3 of them went so we threw caution to the wind and took the path we didn’t know.  We may have been […]

Waterfall Hunt

It was a perfect day.  It wasn’t hot, it wasn’t raining and the leaves were in full color.  We were in Michigan and it was also my husband’s birthday.  I had told him that since it was his day we would go wherever he wanted to, so I was prepared for a full day of […]

Roadside Finds

Maybe some of you read my post titled Gas, if so, you know that Spencer had a flat tire.  Near the town we live in there is a really cool place called Pat’s Motorsports.  The people who run it are great and Rod has known them for years from snowmobiling.  At any rate, we figured […]

Redridge Dam

Tuesday had been a kind of rainy day and Wednesday was starting out the same way.  Temperatures were cool and it was drizzly.  Rod was going kind of crazy, he wanted to ride.  I kept telling him that the weather said it was going to clear up and finally it did.  The year before the […]

Out for a walk

After all of our adventures on Monday, we really didn’t do a whole lot on Tuesday.  More stuff around the house, but I did end up going for two memorable walks. The first one was with Felix.  We meandered our way to the beach and then we continued to meander through town.  Snapping photos all […]

Day 1 Continued

Sorry about the brevity of the last post.  I am telling you, getting back into the swing of things from vacation is not easy.  It doesn’t help that part of my mind and a lot of my heart are still in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.  I swear it is almost a magical place.  Each […]

Up North Day 1

I only have a short minute this morning so this will be a quick entry.  After driving for 18 hours we wanted to do nothing but hit the sack when we got to Michigan.  Since Rod’s Mom and Step Dad were visiting us, the next day we decided to take them to see some of […]

New Ventures

About a month ago I applied for a job as a reporter for the Meridian Star.  It was a job I knew I was not going to get, but I applied anyway…you know, a nothing ventured, nothing gained sort of thing.  Well, I didn’t get the job, but they did ask me to do some […]
