I'm really excited and pleased to discover your show. I didn't know there were any shows that spotlighted so much of the Upper Peninsula. I really hope there will be a way for me to see them all. Thank you for this production.

I love all of your shows! This weeks really caught my eye due to the "Polar Express" tour. That is what I am really interested in. "The Polar Express" is one of my favorite movies that I watch with my granddaughters and we have a ball with the "HOT CHOCOLATE" scene in which we have a cup ourselves along with the movie. I would appreciate information on how to join in on the fun for the train tour and other events.

I really enjoyed seeing the different farms i.e., Baynes and Johnsons and plan on visiting them this Fall and I would like to bring my grandchildren to visit, they would have a great time.  I also am planning on coming up and picking blueberries.  I enjoyed picking blueberries in the past but it's been a while.  I'd love it if you could send me a brochure on this episode.  Thanks so much.

We are excited about planning a two-week 'adventure' in the U.P. for September.  Your getaway shows always make us say 'wish we were there'.  We have already begun planning for our tours for summer 2011.

I like the trip. I did the "Explore the Bruce" last year on my motorcycle after watching your show, we stopped at lots of light houses, water falls and did some hiking on the Bruce Trail. Yyour shows make me want to go.

Your show has me already planning for next summers vacation. We have been to Port Austin, but it was just for a few days in early November. I'm now planning for a week in the thumb, in the summer, armed with our bikes and kayaks.

Great show!  My husband and I have lived in Western Michigan all our life, but have never been to the thumb area.  Your show showed us the great things we have missed.  Please send us a Huron County Guide so we can plan a trip to that area.

Could you please tell me the city that was referred to as seeing a Sunrise and Sunset in the Thumb/Huron circle tour?

Because of its unique location, the Port Austin area offers spectacular sunsets and equally beautiful sunrises over the water.

I really loved the info on the thumb area.  I only caught part of the show.   I would love to see it again.  Can you tell me when it will be on again or if I can get info about the campgrounds & kayak areas. Thank you

"Thumbs Up" is not scheduled to air in the next two months, but keep an eye on our show schedule to see when it might be on again. Also, take a look at the Huron County Travel Planner for the information you are looking for. Thanks for watching.

Watching this show made me want to explore Sanilac county. It made me realize I haven't really seen much of the thumb area even though it is fairly close to where I live.

Great Show, showcasing the best of Michigan with Tawas area being the highlite of the day.  Vacationed there as a child, still fish the bay for salmon and really want to ride that new bike path.

Herb Confer - Owosso, MI

The show was excellent. I have not been to the Tawas area in more than 20 years. I am amazed at how things have changed. I can hardly wait to visit. I am especially interested in the cabins at the campground there at the state park. I am happy to know that fishing is still good there as well.

Great show! I have visited East Tawas many times in the past but didn't know about the bike trail. It is on my list of "to dos" for this fall. Thanks for the information.

Wonderful, It has been a long time since we visited the Tawas area, my husband & I will be visiting the area soon, so much to see.  We spent our honeymoon in Tawas 32 years ago, and use to take our kids their during the summer.

Great show!  Although we are regular visitors to Tawas & East Tawas, we did not know that the bike trail was all the way to/from Alabaster..... looking forward now to a nice Lake Huron bike ride!

I was the first volunteer lighthouse keeper at the Tawas Point Lighthouse. I wish Chuck would have talked a little more about the program because it is exceptional. I enjoyed your video and would like to share it with my class.
