WOW!  I've traveled the state extensively about 30 years ago, and it brings back many awesome memories to say the least. Places I've been to, ones I would like to revisit, keep up the great work. We love watching your programs!!!

We have been to the areas you showed, Seney, Fayette Ghost Town(as it was known then)and Manistique, but it was 30 years ago. It appears a lot has changed since then. We will enjoy seeing those places again.

It was great- the Negwegon & Onaway segments convinced me to stop and enjoy their scenery and solitude. I am often near Oscoda, so the information will be helpful.

The beauty of the area, a place to ride bikes, walk through the tree tops, the trail and the excitement of the zip line. Great program.

This was a great show! I love the Manistique area and am actually getting married at Clear Lake. Seeing Indian Lake brought back fond memories for my fiance. There truly is no place like the U.P.! Thank you for creating such a unique look at the area!

When our kids were growing up, we camped quite a bit in the UP.  Your show brought back some great memories and also mentioned s few things that we never realized were avaiable to see. I would love to start planning some trips with the grandchildren.

I had never heard of your show before watching it today. I liked it so well I am now visiting your site. I am always looking for more things to do in Michigan and the UP. Have not done much in the UP since I was a kid.

Michigan is such a beautiful state.  I love all your shows.  You have given me several places I want to visit.

Glen Bremer - Grand Rapids, MI

Tom, you made a HUGE error on the program today (4/29/2012).  You were doing a report on food in the Manistique Area and you stated that the Pastie was "invented" in the UP.  Not true.  The Pastie was brought over from Cornwall by the Cornish miners wifes.  It has thrived in the UP because of those Cornish people.  Also, it is almost impossible to find a True Cornish Pastie.  Original Pasties are not a ground up glob of mush, but diced up onions, potatoes, rutabaga, peas and braised beef cubes, wrapped in a crust made from lard, flour, water.  The crust had to be tough not flakey since the miners carried them wrapped in cloth under their shirts while they worked.  The shirts became sweat soaked and so did the pasties. By the way, I do enjoy watching the show since I was born and raised in the UP.  The problem is, many of the "stories" you mention are being told by people that were NOT born in the UP or even in the area.

- Thanks for the correction Glen. Interesting bit of history.

Melanie Verbrugge - Grosse Pointe, MI

My husband and I loved it.  We have family in Manistique and never even visited half the things that were mentioned on the show. Next time we go back, a trip to Indian Lake and the winery are definitely on our list. Thank you.
